Penny Roker rsm is member of the Sisters of Mercy in London. She has wide experience of leading retreats and using guided mediations in her prison chaplaincy work.She is author of 'Homely Love:prayers and reflections using the words of Julian of Norwich'
'The book is readable and well ordered. It would make an excellent retreat guide for home or in a more traditional retreat setting. It could also be used in the group context, for example for a church weekend away ... I once tried going on a week's retreat. I lasted four days! Perhaps if I had used Penny Roker's practical guide to having a retreat at home I might have spent less money and acheieved more.' -- Rebecaa Payne
