Publisher Description

From the bestselling author of The Secret Life of Bees and the new novel The Invention of Wings (Viking, January 2014) comes a thoughtful, revelatory book of writings on self and spirit

Before she won an international readership with her novels, Sue Monk Kidd was best known for her smart, passionate spiritual writings. Now many of those early stories and essays (most of which first appeared in Guideposts) are collected in one volume, organized around thirteen spiritual motifs. In Firstlight, Kidd charts her emergence as a writer and seeker; reflects on her roles as wife, mother, daughter, nurse, and artist; and assesses what she has learned in settings as far-flung as Africa and her own home. The result is an intimate, uplifting book, filled with moments of recognition and discovery.

Rae T. ,

A delightful treasure!

I have not read the novels that Sue Monk Kidd has become famous for, but I stumbled across this collection while looking for something inspirational to add to my 'pod. This is a wonderful assortment of reflections, essays and life lessons that lends itself to repeated listenings. The viewpoint is Christian but not dogmatic. The narrator, Kate Forbes, has a very expressive delivery with a faint Southern accent. The price seemed a little steep, but given how often I have listened to this audiobook, I now consider it a good value. Highly recommended.
