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. Through deeply personal and emotional stories from her own life and the lives of those she encounters, she forges a connection with the reader and illuminates the power and resilience found in the biblical psalms.
