Night’s Bright Darkness
Ignatius Press, 2016

In the space of nine months, Sally Read went from being a staunch atheist to a devout Catholic. The British poet’s conversion is nothing short of miraculous. Feminist, atheist and deeply anti-Catholic, she was writing a book about women’s sexuality when, during her research, she spoke with a Catholic priest. That encounter led her on a dramatic journey of spiritual quest.
Read confronts head-on the burning question for God that every true Christian harbors: What do You want me to do? In an age of increasing secularism, her book takes us to the core of what the Church is all about: Christ and the yearning to be near Him.
