This is the first book by talented artist Mary Fleeson, a Community Companion who lives on Holy Island (see Life in Christ for her second). Mary invites you to accompany her on a journey, ‘to share a quiet walk, some thoughtful moments and a few challenges…This is not a book of answers. I only hope to share with you a little of what I have discovered since becoming a Christian and encourage you to ask questions of yourself, of others and of God.’ Dr Michelle Brown, Curator of Illuminated Manuscripts (including the Lindisfarne Gospels) at the British Library, in her foreword to this book, comments how Mary has reflected, in her vibrant organic images, scribal work and words, the prayer lives of the Celtic Saints who first brought the Gospel to Lindisfarne; the labour that has been a perpetual feature of life on the island through the centuries; and the beauty of the artwork in the Lindisfarne Gospels. This is a wonderful gift book.
