Books Info:

Awestruck - A Skeptic's Pilgrimage free pdf This "haunted, hauntingly beautiful"* memoir is a "dazzling exploration of love between generations and between partners."** When the Black Madonna erupts like a volcano in the life of Joan Weimer, an agnostic Jew, this black-faced image of the Virgin Mary triggers painful memories of Joan's dead mother and threatens to estrange Joan from her husband, a committed atheist. As she tracks down the Black Madonna at her shrines in Switzerland, Italy, England and Spain- as she walks ancient labyrinths in churches and commons, Joan's outer journey makes possible a profound inner journey. With the help of a woman rabbi, she discovers that her mother's fitful love and the spiritual force that seem to come and go are both like flowing water: they abide even while they are moving on. *James Hollis, author of Finding Meaning in the Second Half of Life **Mary Felstiner, author of Out of Joint: A Private
