From its origin as a letter from one convert to the Orthodox Church to the frightened protestant parents of another (occasioned by the daughters entry into a convent), the book grew as a collective effort between the letter’s writer (who expanded it to three), her parish priest and members of the parish, and several participants in a “circulation list”, including her bishop and several monks at Holy Trinity Monastery. A fitting companion to The Sacramental Life, it appeals to an even broader audience. After several reprints, it is now available as well in French (below), and has been serialized in Russian.
