Here's the cover of my newest book

I am very happy to share with all of you the cover of my newest book, Walking Together: Discovering the Catholic Tradition of Spiritual Friendship, which will be published by Ave Maria Press in November. You can actually pre-order through amazon HERE if you just can't wait to snag your copy. I'll be sharing lots more news about this book as we get closer to the publication date.

Here's the front-cover blurb from the book's foreword by Donna-Marie Cooper O'Boyle, catholic author and host of EWTN's Everyday Blessings for Catholic Moms: "Exquisite! Will help others open their eyes to the beauty within their friendships." Thanks again, Donna, for the beautiful foreword to this book.

Inside you'll discover the blessings of spiritual friendships, those relationships that take friendship to another level -- a faith level. I've used stories from my own life, from the lives of kind people who were willing to share with me, and from the lives of the saints. And there are reflection questions and meditations at the end of each chapter for those who want to use this book as a study guide or for group discussions. That's it in a nutshell for now.

I've created a "fan" page on Facebook where I'll post regular updates about all of my books, speaking engagements, etc. So click HERE to go that page and then click "like" to become a fan. You can also go through the Facebook box on the top left side of this screen.

If you click on the image of the cover, you can see a larger version.

Mary, this sounds like a very special book -- definitely one I will want to read. In fact, I'm thinking you would make an excellent guest for my radio show. Thoughts? :) We'll talk on email or Facebook but I'm excited about this possibility! Congrats on a beautiful cover!!!
