Thank you!Review by Customer
A huge thank you for Cloth for the Cradle - it has both inspired and taken me to corners of my faith that I had left undisturbed for years. I have found the prayers so challenging, for they have no romance in them, yet a sweetness so warming that one has to stop and savour the way the words sit one against the other.
