Prodigal Daughter : A Journey to Byzantium, Paperback / softback Book

Prodigal Daughter : A Journey to Byzantium Paperback / softback

Part of the Wayfarer series


A deep-seated questioning of her inherited religion resurfaces when Myrna Kostash chances upon the icon of St.

Demetrius of Thessalonica. A historical, cultural and spiritual odyssey that begins in Edmonton, ranges around the Balkans, and plunges into a renewed vision of Byzantium in search of the Great Saint of the East delivers the author to an unexpected place-the threshold of her childhood church.

An epic work of travel memoir, Prodigal Daughter sings with immediacy and depth, rewarding readers with a profound sense of an adventure they have lived.

This book will appeal to readers interested in Ukrainian-Canadian culture, the Eastern Church, and medieval history, as well as to fans of Kostash's bold creative nonfiction.
