Reviews

"A candid, generous, and profound spiritual memoir that deserves a great deal of thoughtful discussion."--Anne Rice

"A wonderful achievement . . . Johnson opens the window on a horizon of spiritual questions [and] takes an unflinching look inside her own heart."--The Christian Science Monitor

"An incredible coming-of-age story . . . [It] has everything a memoir needs: an inside look at a way of life that most of us will never see, a physical and emotional journey, and suspense."--Slate

"Reads like a novel . . . an exacting account of a woman growing into her own soul."--More magazine

"Engaging, heartfelt and entertaining . . . [Johnson] articulates her struggles with her God in words that will hit home."--Los Angeles Times

"An inspiration that transcends any particular religious belief . . . An Unquenchable Thirst is a journey that captivates, but its resonance lies in the life examined."--The Denver Post
