'Inspirational' * Daily Mail *
'Sarah Sands has written about stillness with an eloquence that fizzes with vitality and wit. This wonderful book charts a journey to some of the most beautiful and tranquil places on earth, and introduces us to people whose inner peace is a balm for our troubled times. I loved every page of it.' * Nicholas Hytner *
'This book shows that tranquillity of spirit is worth searching for.' * John Humphrys *
'This is a book which goes beyond history to the needs of human nature. It is a balm for our times.' * Elizabeth Adenkule, Archdeacon of Hackney *

'A fascinating journey, from the cauldron of the newsroom to the peace of monasteries.' * Alice Thomson *
'Magical... Bright... Captivating.' -- Craig Brown * Mail on Sunday *

'Gripping... Witty... Poignant, and a fable of our times.' -- Dan Hitchens * UnHerd *
'A charming and quirky homage to A Time to Keep Silence by Patrick Leigh Fermor... The pulling of [Sands'] natural twinkling merriment against her genuine desire to explore spirituality and silence is what makes this book so lovable.' -- Ysenda Maxtone Graham * The Spectator *
'An engaging and satisfying book challenging us to consider the priorities each of us have chosen, and inviting us to consider how best we can find the interior silence by which we can know ourselves and the world around us better.' -- Reverend Marcus Walker * The Times *
'A beautifully written, self-deprecating, self-doubting, and fortunately timed book.' -- William Cash * Catholic Herald *
