Miriam Therese Winter - award-winning musician, author, and missionary - is a four-time Catholic Book Award-winner. She shares her experiences of becoming a Sister, working with starving children in Ethiopia and with refugees in Cambodia, of exploring the mysteries of India and the wonders of God in her own backyard, of having breast cancer and having hope. She also illumines new aspects of community, Eucharist, the word and spirit, water and the stars, spiritual blessedness, and much more. Each chapter is like a short story, complete in itself but revealing new aspects of the author's life and vision. Each one begins with a personal experience and segues into a spiritual lesson that will resonate in your mind and heart. You'll come to know Miriam Therese Winter as a friend and, in the process, understand more about your own life and the purpose God has for you. The author is a professor of liturgy, worship, and spirituality at Hartford Seminary in Connecticut.

What made the experience of listening to The Singer and the Song the most enjoyable?
Janis Ian's rendition of the songs.
Have you listened to any of Janis Ian’s other performances before? How does this one compare?
Yes. Another 5 star performance! Ian's acting background and musician's ear for sound quality, make her performances blend completely with the story. Janis' voice coney's an understanding of the story so completely it is a joy to listen!
Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?
I found the songs compelling.
Any additional comments?
Looking forward to more from Janis Ian!
