Lying Awake by Mark Salzman

Mark SalzmansLying Awakeis a finely wrought gem that plumbs the depths of one womans soul, and in so doing raises salient questions about the power-and price-of faith. Sister Johns cloistered life of peace and prayer has been electrified by ever more frequent visions of Gods radiance, leading her toward a deep religious ecstasy. Her life and writings have become examples of devotion. Yet her visions are accompanied by shattering headaches that compel Sister John to seek medical help. When her doctor tells her an illness may be responsible for her gift, Sister John faces a wrenching choice: to risk her intimate glimpses of the divine in favor of a cure, or to continue her visions with the knowledge that they might be false-and might even cost her her life.
