Publisher's Summary

"I remained, lost in oblivion; My face I reclined on the Beloved. All ceased and I abandoned myself, Leaving my cares forgotten among the lillies." Thus writes 16th century Spanish poet and mystic, St. John of the Cross. In this, his third work, the author reflects on the nature of a personal union with Christ, found in the abandonment of self.

Adore the book awful narration

The narrators diction is clear but too clipped & plumby RP British accent & emotionally matter of fact a read for me; like an old school BBC news reader delivering a report; or a teacher giving mere facts for such an emotive, inspirational, spiritual subject/ book; so decided best to read it myself slowly using my own inner voice so returned it & bought the Kindle full works of St. John of the cross for less than £1.
