Item Description...
"Death will come like a thief in the night. That's how my depressions arrive; they descend without warning and usually in the middle of the nipht when I'm lying alone in bed. The first sign is a rapid heartbeat...then the sweats, so profuse I must wear a towel draped around my neck. I go through several towels nightly."

So John Highet describes his latest bout with a crippling, lifelong depression. Even the verse of Ethan Seegard, his favorite poet, now fails to Qffer its usual solace. In a desperate attempt to lift his spirits, Highet's friend Paula Young encourages him to write the definitive biography of Seegord, now a redusive monk at New Rievoulx Abbey. Reluctantly intrigued, Highet books a retreat at the abbey --- emborking on a lourney that will not only challenge his well-trained intellect, but open his eyes to the world of the spirit. A haunting and soul-lifting novella, Blue Hope reawakens us to the transforming power of the written word and the restorative grace of beauty, silence, and, ultimately, love.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
from one to another  Feb 15, 2006
I have battled with my own depression and along the way I found this book, and I found it very helpful. If you know someone who is fighting their own battle, this book can help them too. It's not an answer or any kind of a cure, it is just a statement of love, hope and understanding from one soul to another. It's hard to say how much just knowing someone else understands, that someone else has been there and survived, can help.
It sucks you right in and releases you refreshed  Mar 28, 2005
I picked up this book one night before bed, bad but worthwhile mistake. I finished it that very night. It's a very compelling book, and regardless of whether you have struggled with deep depression like the main character, his plight is written of in such a way that it really sheds light on struggles that we all have had at one time or another. I also think that Mr. Waldron wrote beautifully not only of the man's problems but also of his spiritual journey, and that of the other characters. In an era where many books tend to have shocking plotlines in order to grab the readers attention, it is very refreshing to find a book that is beautifully and compellingly written without having to resort to any of the base tactics of many other authors. Kudos Mr. Waldron!
What I needed and could never find  May 23, 2004
I found this book at a spirtual book store under the Fiction section. The cover grabbed my attention and so did the first few lines. In my life Depression has had a way of coming over me suddenly and staying for a intense period of time. Like the main character I have searched and found aid in poetry and later in God. The author tells a rich and very human story filled with despair and a desperation for divine intervention. The references to Church and sacrament are familiar for all of us who have sought comfort from Church. This book is awesome as it tells the story of many of us who despair and seek the Lord often by accident. Spirtually fulfilling and a must read for anyone who has ever questioned God or themselves.
hopeful, worthwhile book  Apr 14, 2003
I found Blue Hope to be worthwhile and hopeful. It is a gem of a book, reads easily and develops well, notwithstanding the comments in the editorial reviews above. If you have read this far you should purchase the book. I just wish I could find more like it. The author is giving the reader a small gift of hope and his story successfully conveys the gift. I was moved.
PS- the book is beautifully designed and printed.
Contemplative, Refreshing and Grabbing  Feb 20, 2003
As a priest, I read plenty of spiritual books. I was skeptical about this book through the first few pages, wondering if it would be another dreary discussion of depression and spirituality. Yet, I was grabbed within a very few pages (maybe 5) and I enjoyed reading the entire book all the way through. I felt good reading it. I liked the characters I met in this book. This book is a nice treatment on the subject of coming to faith despite intellectual and personal objections to "religion". I thoroughly recommend this book to parishioners.
