Amazon.com Amazon.com Review (ISBN 0385499558, Hardcover)

You will like this person: "I live in an untidy Victorian house much in need of paint and landscaping, in a totally unremarkable beer-and-pretzel-ish small town, in one of the least picturesque areas of a largish Canadian province, and the life I lead is almost completely without interesting incident. I am plain and middle-aged; my hair is usually all over the place, and I could easily lose more than a few pounds." This is how Molly Wolf introduces herself on the first page of her book about finding God in everyday life, A Place Like Any Other. Wolf's God makes himself known in unusual ways--"lurking," "seeping," and "playing"--and seems, inexplicably yet undeniably, to be keeping watch over both the field mice in her yard and the cats who hunt them. Wolf, who had not written for more than two decades, began posting "short meditation-type pieces on several Internet mailing lists" just a few years ago. The pieces, which Wolf posts on Saturdays, are called "Sabbath Blessings," and this book is comprised of a year's worth of such pieces. Each essay is only a few pages long, and each one offers another aspect of Wolf's open-eyed, bittersweet, both-feet- on-the-ground spiritual sensibility. From "Mud Season" to "Leaf Season," Wolf perceives a divine presence in every moment of time.
