As L'Arche Daybreak and L'Arche Canada approach their 50th anniversary, this beautifully-written memoir tells the inside story of daily life with people with learning disabilities in this unique community. It is full of touching, sometimes amusing, but always life-affirming stories from the life together of Beth Porter, who has been a part of the L'Arche Daybreak community for nearly forty years, and other members of the community, and charts Beth's own spiritual journey during this time. The book includes a chapter about Henri Nouwen's time as part of the Daybreak community.

Beth Porter

taught university English in Canada before coming to L'Arche in 1980. She was lead editor working on Befriending Life: Encounters with Henri Nouwen (DLT, 2001). For many years she has written reflections for the Catholic missal published by Novalis.
