Thats how my depressions arrive- they descend without warning and usually in the middle of the nipht when Im lying alone in bed. The first sign is a rapid heartbeat...then the sweats, so profuse I must wear a towel draped around my neck. I go through several towels nightly.So John Highet describes his latest bout with a crippling, lifelong depression. Even the verse of Ethan Seegard, his favorite poet, now fails to Qffer its usual solace.

In a desperate attempt to lift his spirits, Highets friend Paula Young encourages him to write the definitive biography of Seegord, now a redusive monk at New Rievoulx Abbey. Reluctantly intrigued, Highet books a retreat at the abbey — emborking on a lourney that will not only challenge his well-trained intellect, but open his eyes to the world of the spirit. A haunting and soul-lifting novella, Blue Hope reawakens us to the transforming power of the written word and the restorative grace of beauty, silence, and, ultimately, love.Author Biography: ROBERT WALDRON is the author of five books, including Thomas Merton in Search of His Saul, which is required reading at several universities.

He is published regularly in literary and religious lournals, and is a frequent lecturer and retreat director. Waldron lives in Boston, where he has taught at Boston Latin School for 33 years.
