Martha Manning's previous memoir, Undercurrents, reveals her struggle with suicidal depression and her slow recovery, ending with the spiritual peace she found during her time in a monastery. Its sequel, Chasing Grace, is divided into sections based on the seven sacraments of the Roman Catholic Church: baptism, penance, Eucharist, confirmation, matrimony, holy orders, and last rites. Using this structure she relates episodes from her Catholic girlhood, her adult search for spirituality, and her own work as a therapist. Throughout, a sense of humor enlivens her account of a life spent in search of grace.About the Author:
