Love is Stronger than Death: The Mystical Union of Two Souls
This is a guide-book for those who are called to the path of conscious love. This powerful book, written by Episcopal priest Cynthia Bourgeault, tells of her intense relationship with Brother Raphael Robin, a seventy-year-old Trappist monk and hermit. The romantic yet platonic relationship that ensued between the 50-year-old Bourgeault and the 70-year-old hermit lasted five years, until his death. Both believed that a relationship can continue beyond this life, and here Bourgeault describes her search for that connection before and after Robin's death. Originally published by Crown/Harmony in 1999 (before her best selling titles were published), this reissue features a new foreword by the author.
