Virtual Book Tour: Review at Find Hope

Next stop on the Virtual Book Tour is Mary Benton’s great review at Find Hope where she describes becoming intoxicated by life:

I no longer recall what I was searching for but certainly it was not an online community. What I stumbled across was this: www.abbeyofthearts.com. The home page of Christine’s website declared itself “an online global monastery without walls” – a most intriguing claim.
