In Love Feast, Martha Johnson Bourlakas grapples with life as a person of a faith, life as a clergy spouse (her husband is bishop of Southwestern Virginia), life as the parent of a special needs daughter, life as a one unable to maintain pretense.  The Parish Book Store offers this small book of essays which will feed your soul and warm your spirit.

(Additional copies of God of our Mothers, the October and November selection for the Parish Book Store Book Group, are available now!)
