Author Irene Tomkinson makes no bones about her view of religion, but don’t let the title fool you, this is a raw, deftly written story about life and not losing faith no matter what bucket of lemons you have been handed. With gritty authenticity and compelling story telling, Irene takes the reader on a grace filled journey through the tender crevices of her difficult yet faith-filled life.

For anyone grappling with separating religion and spirituality, or religion and God, this book is a must. This amazing human being has through her wisdom and understanding helped me discover and live from that “still small voice”. Yes, that deep sense of “KNOWING”. At 72, I am finally learning to trust myself.
