Críticas:

"""Five Years in Heaven" is a wonderfully crafted book that must be read slowly in order to fully absorb the brilliance and depth of Sister Augustine's insights into the human condition."
Mary Neal, Author of "To Heaven and Back"
"This is an inspiring memoir of the miracle of friendship. We can all learn much from this book's simple and profound wisdom."
Deepak Chopra, author of "The Path to Love"
"What can an 87-year-old Benedictine sister teach a world-weary 31-year-old self-described "lost and disoriented" man? More than he could have imagined. What does can this book about their unique relationship teach you? More than you can imagine. This heartwarming story about spiritual friendship shows how God's love can be revealed in the most surprising of ways, and people."
James Martin, SJ, author of "A Jesuit's Guide to Almost Everything"

Reseña del editor:

What is heaven on earth? The answer lies in this true story of one young man's journey to find hope and purpose with the help of an unlikely teacher--a compassionate and wise old nun, whom the world had long-forgotten.
By the time Harvard-educated John Schlimm turned 31 years old, he had worked with some of the biggest superstars in Nashville and served under the most powerful people in the White House. But something was missing. His life had come to a standstill, lost in a whirl of questions about belonging, faith, rejection, and purpose. He soon decides to return to his small-town roots in search of a new beginning.
Returning home, John meets 87-year-old Sister Augustine, the beguiling self-taught artist-in-residence at the ceramic shop on the sprawling grounds of the local 150-year-old convent. John is instantly bowled over by Sister's quiet grace and vision. Before long, his weekly visits to Sister's shop become a master's class in the meaning of life, love, humility, and second chances. As she directed him on the road to self-discovery and salvation, John returned the favor by putting Sister Augustine on the front page of newspapers and showing his friend that her life still had one very important and unexpected final chapter yet to go.
In Five Years in Heaven, John shares the wisdom, humor, grace, and inspiration he experienced during his hundreds of visits with Sister Augustine. Five Years in Heaven reminds us that we can find love and joy in the most unlikely of places, and that the building blocks of peace and happiness are always within our reach.
