Publisher's Summary

In this spiritual memoir, writer Maureen O'Brien reflects on the many ways in which she found a home and a refuge in the biblical psalms, drawing strength from them in a wide variety of experiences and seeking in them a safe shelter from life's storms.

Critic Reviews

"What Was Lost: Seeking Refuge in the Psalms is an inspiring and heart-felt book consisting of a series of vignettes taken from the author’s rich and varied life. A skillful writer, O’Brien immerses readers into each scene as if they were experiencing it themselves. The stories illustrate O’Brien’s love of life, from its beautiful simplicity to its most difficult challenges. While most of us sleepwalk through life, she takes sufficient time to examine each moment fully, uncovers deeper meaning, and shares her insights with the reader. O’Brien is a woman of faith, but not the cookie-cutter variety that so often passes for faith today. Rather, she drinks deeply from the waters of life, helping us to understand more clearly the meaning of the psalms and tenets of her Catholic faith. I kept What Was Lost by my bedside, reading a few stories each night. They helped me open my heart and uplift my spirit just before drifting off into sleep. I’m ready to begin reading the book again, reliving some of the stirring scenes that still dwell in my memory." (Alice McDowell, PhD, author of Hidden Treasure and Dance of Light [forthcoming])
