A book to make you laugh out loud at the sheer wonder of life, in spite of its uncertainties. This is a rare and insightful glimpse of one woman's journey towards what is often dismissed as 'old age' without acknowledging the wisdom that it can bring. Now in her eighties, well-known nun Pauline O'Regan will convince you that there is nothing to fear about ageing and a whole lot to look forward to. And there is always something to laugh at - even at the podiatrist's. Overflowing with a wicked good humour and a practical spirituality, Miles to Go is a robust antidote to the notion that only the young can enjoy life.
Author of the best-selling A Changing Order, Pauline O'Regan's dramatic resignation from a senior position in the Mercy Order caused a sensation in Catholic circles at the time of Vatican II. Pauline continues to live in a small community of Sisters, working among what she calls, 'wonderful, struggling, courageous humanity'.
