"Illness inspires what is the deepest in us. This book is filled with insights into the nature of soul, and how we can connect to the eternal in times of need. Marguerite Bouvard has embraced and eloquently put into words this journey." —Reverend Samuel Oliver, author of What the Dying Teach Us: Lessons on Living.

"Clear, accessible, honest, this book offers consolation and inspiration. Bouvard's prayers of lyric delicacy will serve as a spiritual manual for those who struggle with life's challenges. As an Episcopal priest and counselor, I will recommend "Prayers for Comfort in Difficult Times" with gratitude and enthusiasm to those who come to mee seeking hope in times of trial." —Reverend Anne Carroll Fowler, author of Five Islands and Liz, Wear Those Pearl Earrings.
