Shoes & Ships & Sealing Wax

Shoes & Ships & Sealing Wax

A non fiction book by

In this collection of essays, novelist Alma Alexander reflects on the things that have touched her and shaped her life -- the river that flowed through her childhood, a loved one's life-changing illnes, the death of a beloved pet.

She writes of the nun at a convent school she attended who was narrating a Christmas play: "And Mary and Joseph could not find a room at the inn, so Baby Jesus was born in a stable and laid in a manger, and the angels came to worship..."

She paused, opened her eyes, stared at the scene. The angels she had mentioned were nowhere to be seen..

Sister Fausta sniffed and yanked her wimple forward. "Well, you can't SEE them, but they were there," she said at last, and then carried on with the Christmas story for us.

That is what this collection of profoundly moving essays is about - life, death, and missing Angels.
