Practical Suggestions for Busy People  Sep 12, 2009
This short, easy-to-read book is full of practical advice on how to say the rosary - not just the mechanics, but how to make time in your life for this important prayer. I found it more helpful than anything else I've read regarding the rosary.
May very well be the most exceptional book you'll read about the Rosary  Sep 7, 2009
This may very well be the most exceptional book you'll read about the Rosary. Much more than a how-to guide, Karen succeeds in making a convincing case for praying the Rosary despite any lack of time, wandering minds, and dry periods in prayer. She guides the reader through history and the wisdom of the Church, adding her own warmhearted insights to unveil the mystery and beauty of this ancient prayer of the Church. I highly recommend this book for both the beginner Rosary pray-er and the seasoned one.

All were endorsed by Blessed Teresa and blessed by Pope John Paul II.

Something for everyone  Jun 23, 2009
The author is a former atheist who became a Catholic at the age of 39. In this book she has produced "a primer, a reference, and a source of support" for all who are interested in the Catholic practice of praying the rosary. She addresses common misunderstandings about the rosary and provides practical tips for incorporating it into our prayer life.

After a brief report on her own introduction to the rosary, Edmisten explores its origins and miracles associated with it. She frequently returns to the often problematic issue of praying "to" Mary, explaining that Mary is not the granter of prayers but one who intercedes on our behalf. Two chapters are devoted to the mechanics of the rosary and the role of the mysteries, with a brief description of each.

Her chapter on meditating on the mysteries begins with a quotation from the Catechism of the Catholic Church defining meditation as a quest for greater understanding of God and our life with him through "thought, imagination, emotion and desire." Edmisten provides rosary examples for each of these four elements. While praying the third joyful mystery, she suggests we think about the birth of Jesus, imagine being a witness, and consider Mary's emotions. Lastly, we ask ourselves if we desire to be transformed by the nativity. Meditation is not high drama, weeping, or levitation, she writes, but simply focusing on one thing about God at a time. "Meditation is a way of herding the stray thoughts, corralling them and setting them aside for a time," so that we have room for the moment's one thing.

This little book has something for everyone, from individuals unfamiliar with the rosary to those who pray with it regularly.
One of the Best Books I've Read  May 23, 2009
When this book arrived, I found the "something else" I had been seeking (though I couldn't have told you I was looking for it). For one thing, there's the title. I love the image of the rosary as a time to just hang out with Jesus and his mom. It has given me a whole new approach to my morning rosary, an entirely new paradigm and a breath of fresh prayer for me.
Unlike so many devotional helps, Karen Edmisten doesn't flowery-phrase you to death. She says what needs said -- I had quite a few "ah-HA!" moments -- and she shares enough from her own experience that I caught myself, a few times, looking over to see if she was standing over my shoulder.

It's the kind of book that has a voice you can actually hear. Karen's approachable and she's not out to convince you to pray the rosary. Instead of a volume of reasons you should be praying the rosary already, Keeping Company is one woman sitting down, coffee in hand, to discuss it calmly with you. She gives some history, she gives some tips, she gives some anecdotes, and in the midst of it, I found myself smiling and nodding and asking her if she wanted more coffee, if she could stay for another few pages, if she would pray with me.

This is one of my very favorite books. I can't recommend it highly enough, whether or not you're a Catholic or you struggle with the rosary.
Beauty, inspiration, and practicality  May 9, 2009
What a joy it was to receive my pre-ordered copy of "The Rosary: Keeping Company with Jesus and Mary" just in time for Mother's Day.

As always, Karen Edmisten writes with sincerity and clarity, drawing others to the rosary through a narrative that is intensely personal and deeply spiritual. Without so much as a word wasted, the book is a course in Marian history, apologetics, scripture and prayer that I cannot wait to share with my teenagers.

The real genius of the book is that it is at once both simple and deep--simple and not at all intimidating for those just learning to say the rosary, yet deep and full of new information for those of us who have loved this prayer a long time. It is also a book I can see myself revisiting whenever I need a lift or inspiration. Karen's "Making it Work" chapter in particular is one I need right now while juggling a new baby along with days that are fuller than full. My new motto is going to be "pray while you rock and nurse, rock and nurse . . . ."

This book is a labor of love sure to remain a favorite forever. It is the perfect tribute to the "fairest of queens in the fairest of seasons, sweet May."
