Shaped around the writings of Caryll Houselander, A Child in Winter is a daybook for Advent, Christmas, and Epiphany. If you are familiar with Houselander's poetic grace, you will recognize her spirit of awe and abandonment to God. If you are new to her legacy, you will be drawn to her heart and eye for God's goodness and beauty that is artfully captured here.A Child in Winter is a faithful companion as you watch in Advent and grow large with the presence of God through Christmas and Epiphany.You will enter these holy seasons with an increased faith, renewed joy, and the promise of transformation and fulfillment.
This is a jewel of a book, shimmering in its modesty. It will bring deep delight not only as we behold the wondrous mystery of the Incarnation at Christmas time, but even and especially as we seek to remain open to the gift of God's constant coming throughout the year.--Michael Downey, author and professor of theology and spirituality
