Publisher's Summary

WINNER - 2014 Golden Crown Literary Society Best Dramatic Fiction  

“Here, the true you is most often magnified, for better or for worse.”
Abbess Theodora 

In a world increasingly connected to computers and machines but disconnected to self and others, Dr. Michele Stewart finds herself drowning in a life that no longer holds meaning. Searching for a deeper connection after losing her partner, Alice, she enters a contemplative monastery, living a life dedicated to prayer, to faith in things unseen. Though most of her family and friends are convinced that she has become a nun to run away from her life, she finds herself more attuned to life than she has been in years. Stripped of the things that define most people in the outside world - career, clothing, possessions - she rediscovers a long forgotten part of herself. But sooner than she expects, the outside world intrudes, forcing her to confront doubts and demons she thought she had left behind. The ultimate test of her vocation comes from the unlikeliest source when she finds herself falling in love again. As she struggles to discern where she belongs, she discovers the terrifying truth of Abbess Theodora’s warning. For better or for worse.

Excellent!

I loved In This Small Spot. Note: I cried almost the entire time I read the book. I practically cried thru the whole audio. Such a moving story. I think the issue of the structure of organized religion VS. your own personal religious practice is something most of us can identify with. This book also touches on forgiveness. If you do it with a whole heart it benefits everyone involved. Gabra Zackman did a wonderful job with the narration.
