Abstract:

Chronicles the backgrounds and experiences of nine strangers who gather at a house of prayer on a farm in rural Quebec for a month of silent, prayerful retreat. As one of the nine the author creates a fascinating montage of the participants' stories as they seek a richer aware of God through meditation, prayer, intense journal writing and self-analysis.

And collectively these personal stories convey just what an experience of prayer is, helping readers to identify their own religious experiences.
