Inhaltsangabe: The Quiet Center contains original essays by award-winning, best-selling women writers that appeared in Victoria magazine during its first decade: Diane Ackerman, Madeleine LEngle, Jane Howard, Susan Minot, Whitney Otto, Francine Prose, Carol Shields, Jane Smiley, Phyllis Theroux, Judith Thurman, and others. Victorias three million-plus readers turn to these essays for ideas, inspiration, solace, and uplift. Like William Bennetts best-selling book Book of Virtues, The Quiet Center speaks to the core values and spirituality of millions of women who will find this book both an indispensable companion and a meaningful gift. Contents include reflections on timeless subjects: the relationship of sisters, the lessons learned from mothers and grandmothers, the rituals that are the rhythms of daily life, the eternal rites of childhood. There is a section here as well on beloved authors from the past, from Jane Austen to Willa Cather and Edith Wharton.
Rezension: In this collection of highly acclaimed women writers (including Jane Smiley, Madeleine L'Engle, Diane Ackerman, and Carol Shields), we find the mystery and meaning in life's most ordinary passages and rituals, such as allowing the sound of a mother's lullaby to enter one's DNA, or learning to fall in love, or muddling through the stages of sisterhood. Although these essays originally appeared in Victoria magazine, they are untainted by schmaltz or flowery notions. Each piece speaks from precious years of spiritual reflection and carries the weight of world-class writers. --Gail Hudson
