"Theres a skin of the landscape Im beginning to peel back, and Im finding a map of sorts in the world around me; a landscape of prayer, creation that cannot help but praise the creator. Symbols in the landscape beckon me further up and deeper in. When Im on the prairie, the barriers come down." So begins Cindy Crosbys book of elegant and warm prose. With honesty and friendly wisdom, she observes parallels between the natural world and the inner landscape of prayer, using as a backdrop her own backyard, the tallgrass prairie landscape of Illinois. In a time when we are pulled in so many directions by the "busyness" of our lives, By Willoway Brook invites us to stop, carve out a quiet place, and communicate with the God who created it all.
