    There are certain books that require what St. John of the Cross describes as 'a deep and delicate listening.' Conversations with a Guardian Angel is such a book. Reading it is like eavesdropping on intimate conversations between a person and God. The reader feels that he or she is standing in a doorway that connects two worlds, the psychological and the spiritual, the temporal and the eternal. It is a book that invites the reader to listen to the quiet wisdom of God below the clamor of the ego. Conversations enkindles within us, a desire for the serenity of coming home to our true self, the innocent, unpretentious child made in God’s image and likeness.

     - Marc Foley, O.C.D., author, The Ascent of Mount Carmel: St. John of the Cross, Reflections

     

    Wicks, with his lucid and captivating prose, tells a story that will comfort and reassure his readers of the presence of God in their lives. His first work of fiction places him among the most brilliant storytellers of our era in the genre of spiritual literature. For anyone who has ever lost a loved one or suffered a numbing tragedy (i.e. everyone), Conversations with a Guardian Angel is a balm for the soul and a light for the dark.
