September 2010 Book of the Month. A delightful read delivered in a simplistic style with short sentences and much dialogue.

It’s a love story with lots of unexpected surprises and a host of charming characters, not least Mozart himself. A book to read again and share with friends. Interestingly, the author’s most famous work is The Artist’s Way, a self-help title on creativity. Comparison: Susan Hill, Cecelia Ahern, Jennifer Johnston.

From the bestselling author of The Artist's Way, an inspiring book of prayers, affirmations and meditations. All too often we yearn for a more spiritual life but tell ourselves it's too difficult. But the smallest prayer is heard and answered. The simplest overture meets with a loving response. Each of the prayers and affirmations in this book is a starting point. Taken collectively, they offer an approach to God that is powerful as well as simple. These prayers not only allow us to reach out to God, but they allow God to reach out to us. The book is called Life Lessons because each entry is a corrective to commonly held misconceptions of the divine. Like the postures assumed in hatha yoga, they stretch us gently. Through these prayers, we learn more of ourselves and the divine.
