Press Reviews

In this long awaited book, key themes from Frances Young's earlier work – motherhood, suffering, disability, meaning and love – re-emerge in a richer and deeper melody. The cries of anguish and “why?” are taken up into a new-found trust and joy. She draws us into the beauty and strength of a love which faces all the challenges and yet celebrates the wonder of Arthur's life and vocation. If you are someone grappling with the hard questions about God, life and things going wrong, this book is for you.

- Deborah Ford, Hospital Chaplain at Cambridge University Hospitals

This book isn’t an easy read, but it has depth – a beauty about it that is remarkable and life-affirming.
