About this Book

Print Excerpt


Or was she passing into life? She had yet to be born. If she could pray, she would sing to a god that kind of song babies sing when they begin coming, coming, pushing into the world, a song very few understand for they hear it as the cry of anguish, not the music of prayers from the other world where there is light and joy and freedom.
