Summary of Firstlight Summary of Firstlight Reviews for Firstlight An Excerpt from Firstlight
From the bestselling author of The Secret Life of Bees comes a thoughtful, revelatory book of writings on self and spirit

Before she won an international readership with her novels, Sue Monk Kidd was best known for her smart, passionate spiritual writings. Now many of those early stories and essays (most of which first appeared in Guideposts) are collected in one volume, organized around thirteen spiritual motifs. In Firstlight, Kidd charts her emergence as a writer and seeker; reflects on her roles as wife, mother, daughter, nurse, and artist; and assesses what she has learned in settings as far-flung as Africa and her own home. The result is an intimate, uplifting book, filled with moments of recognition and discovery.

"Kidd's lovely prose, passion for the spiritual life, and early instincts for telling a compelling story should help this book attract a wide readership."
-Publishers Weekly, starred review

"Thoughtful, moving, often luminous meditations on faith, family, death, and love; on compassion, solitude, and grace."
-Booklist
