Named a "best bet" by "USA Today, Chasing Grace" is a hilarious and touching memoir of a Catholic childhood and a lifetime spent in pursuit of grace--from the "talented and thoughtful writer" ("New York Times") Martha Manning, author of the critically acclaimed "Undercurrents". "Poignant, witty, often caustic. . . . Manning's meditation will appeal to thoughtful readers of every persuasion".--"Library Journal".
From the Publisher:
In a funny and poignant memoir, the author recounts her quintessentially Irish-Catholic upbringing and the ways it has shaped her adulthood, from her battles with her nun teachers to her search for the meaning of death. Reprint.
Annotation:
Martha Manning focuses on her Catholic upbringing, from her yearning to be a nun, through troublesome teenage years, to her self-realization as writer, wife, and mother. Manning examines the ways faith has impacted her life, and offers a portrait of Irish-American Catholicism.

Praise
