More Description

A memoir of a devout Catholic woman who, in response to her mystical experiences and the demands of conscience, came into conflict with her church and the conservative political leaders of Memphis over the issues of racism, sexism and the relationship of church and state. The book deals with a whole community of progressive activists in Memphis and elsewhere whose support for the United Nations, Civil Rights, cultural diversity, and individual conscience called on their deepest reserves of courage and integrity. "A woman's powerful account of her determination to bring justice to the world." "Her bravery and forward-thinking, as well as her connection to God, motivated her to improve the lives of those around her. Written with candor and wit, this memoir is both politically informative and spiritually uplifting." "Her inspiring story serves as a powerful reminder that one person can truly make a difference." - Kirkus Review, May, 2013
