It is often said that the deepest spiritual insights come in the face of life's most difficult challenges. Writers like Thomas Merton, Henri Nouwen, and Kathleen Norris, who shared their journeys from the extreme of utter despair to liberating redemption with millions of readers, are now joined by a young woman whose voice at once echoes theirs, yet is wholly original.

In a brave and moving book, Molly Wolf writes about the dragons that tormented her and the angels that offered her redemption. Without drifting into self-indulgent confession or pious victimhood, Wolf describes her emergence from an abusive marriage and her decision to move on with her life with revitalized hope and spirit. She explains how she found strength in the acceptance of her former self, writing: "If you know that you yourself can never fully be put back to rights, because the past is past and can't be undone, you can accept the brokenness of others more gracefully and lovingly".

Like Wolf's previous book, A Place Like Any Other, "Angels and Dragons" reaches out to the entire spectrum of spiritual seekers, speaking to a mainstream nondenominational audience as well as to followers of traditional religions. A memoir that acknowledges the "sloppiness of memory, the wild imprecision of the human heart", "Angels and Dragons" shows readers how to face the past honestly to begin their path to a spiritually rich and rewarding future.
