Olwyn Whelan's beautiful and intricate illustrations enrich Sabrina Dearborn's thoughtful and touching selection, making this a book that will become a keepsake for generations.
"Recognizing that the hunger for the spiritual exists everywhere, Dearborn has compiled a series of short blessings from many cultures.... The text is set in richly decorated frames with image heaped upon image in jewel-like, iconic panels that include flora, fauna, dwellings and people of many ages and places in a profusion of color and line. Reminiscent, in both tone and image of Caitlin Matthews' The Blessing Seed (1998), the book has a gentle, inclusive voice." -- Booklist "Booklist"
