Reviews

The heartfelt account of a search for the feminine face of God . . . vivid, vulnerable, and courageous. (The New York Times Book Review)

Longing for Darkness became my companion as I traveled to see the Black Madonna in Einsiedeln, Switzerland. . . . It was a particular joy for me to read, not only because of the deeply moving journey described in its pages, but because of its passionate exploration of the Black Madonna. I love this book! (Sue Monk Kidd)
