"I was received into the church," states Caryll Houselander at the very beginning of this work "when I was six years old. Strictly speaking, therefore, I am not a `cradle' Catholic, but a rocking-horse Catholic."

This autobiography, first published in 1955, takes the reader from the author's Catholic childhood and school days through a period outside the church while she tried to make her living as an artist, to a return to the church. This return was brought about by her insight, so central to all her books into the presence of Christ and others.

A theologian in every sense of the word except the formal academic one, Caryll Houselander understood the central importance of one's image or concept of God.

"Caryll Houselander: artist, odd ball, mystic, friend, and in the end, suffering servant. In the midst of her last illness, she clung to life, loved life with a passion that did not want to die. `I honestly long,' she said, `to be told `a hundred percent cure' and to return to this life and celebrate it with gramophone records, giggling and gin.'"Mitch Finley, Our Sunday Visitor

As a classic in spirituality, the work of Caryll Houselander is very close to the top of the list.
