Margaret Laurence - A Gift of Grace: A Spiritual Biography documents the critically acclaimed writer's spiritual journey that took her from rural, prairie, Protestant roots to internationally renowned writing and activism.This sensitive retelling of Laurence's life explores how she discovered her love of writing as a young child, and proceeded to work, through her teens and adult life, to answer the call to be a writer that she first felt at age fourteen.Laurence's spiritual journey channelled her into the activism that bracketed her life, starting during World War II, while she was still a teen on the Canadian prairies, and only ending, during the height of the anti-nuclear movement inthe 1980s, with her death. This story of her life is an inspiration to anyone seeking meaning today.
