Warm, honest, and highly personal, Sharing the Darkness meditates on the mystery of our wounded humanity, trying to wrest meaning and a spirituality of caring out of the reality of suffering. With unforgettable portraits of courage, love, and grace in its human form, Cassidy interweaves her own story and those of her patients with moving reflection on the gospels. What she ultimately shows is that the way to God is not different from the way to our own humanity.
