Claudia's June Picks: Five Books by John O'Donohue

For the month of June I would like to introduce you to John O'Donohue.

John O'Donohue was an Irish teacher and internationally respected poet and author, whom the Times in London described as "a man of the soul". He passed away very untimely and unexpectedly at the age of fifty, leaving behind a treasury of inspirational books, filled with poetic language and spiritual insights drawn from Celtic traditions. Readers of all faith will find solace and guidance in his beautiful blessings, prayers, and mesmerizing prose. The books will meander through life's thresholds and serve as an invaluable companion in your odyssey. Please treat yourself to these timeless gems:

To Bless the Space Between Us: A Book of Blessings (Doubleday, $22.95)

Anam Cara: A Book of Celtic Wisdom (Perennial, $14.99)

Beauty : The Invisible Embrace (Perennial, $13.99)

Eternal Echoes : Celtic Reflections on Our Yearning to Belong (Perennial, $13.99)

Conamara Blues: Poems (Perennial, $13.99)
