Praise for Healing Maddie Brees

“Most powerfully, Stevenson links the physical to the spiritual, letting Maddie’s breast cancer open her to a spiritual journey, letting the veneration of the Eucharist open space for understanding illness, letting love for the mortal body open space for love of the divine. A gorgeous meditation on broken bodies, fractured faith, and the soul-wrenching path to serenity.
Kirkus Reviews

Stevenson writes beautifully and raises book-group discussion-worthy issues about relationships… diseases… and faith.”

thought-provoking and sobering
Fans of Julie Cantrell’s The Feathered Bone… will want to check out this title.”
