What do a prince and stonemason have in common? Or an archbishop and an innkeeper? A prime minister and a film star, a rabbi and a footballer, an astronaut and a sheep farmer? They all, at some time or another pray. Deborah Cassidi asked people from all walks of life to choose a favourite prayer or to write one. The result is this collection of prayers, illustrated with Jackie Cundall's woodcuts.
Lady Cassidi lives in Somerset with her husband and near 3 of her grandchildren. She runs the Threshold Prize, a charity which encourages children to write creatively. Her main career has been surgical and medical, as an ophthalmologist and forensic medical doctor. Her time now is devoted to her family, to The Threshold Prize and to working with the Medical Foundation for Victims of Torture.
