Only the Heart Knows How to Find Them: 2precious Memories for a Faithless Time

Christopher De Vinck, Author Viking Books $17.95 (240p) ISBN 978-0-670-83876-9
In The Power of the Powerless , De Vinck recalled the circle of family love that enclosed a profoundly handicapped sibling. In this collection of memories of ordinary daily life with and without family and friends, he suggests, ``We do not have to place ourselves at the peak of a mountain to embrace the world.'' With a quiet, poetic wisdom that derives from the experiences of childhood, family, marriage, career and loneliness, and that will resonate for many, De Vinck observes the world not as chaotic, but rather as the field for daily clashes between the forces of doubt and faith. The sentiment of these mini-essays reprinted from the Reader's Digest and other journals fills a prescription for the healing of hurts. (Sept.)
