One of the most wonderful things she says (non-story-wise) is that she incorporated some of the novel’s imagery into her prayers and found it helpful. That’s the kind of honor writers really appreciate, because nothing is more intimate than a soul’s commerce with God, and to be included (third-party-wise) into that kind of conversation is quite amazing.
She cross-posted the review at her weblog, Happy Catholic, and there’s some discussion going on in the comments section there too.
Overall, I’m thrilled. Thank you, Julie!
