If You Sit Very Still


By Marian Partington. Foreword by Marina Cantacuzino

‘Marian Partington lived for twenty years with the tortuous pain of not knowing how her sister Lucy came to disappear. She has lived for almost twenty more with the tortuous pain of knowing. If You Sit Very Still is the lyrical, humbling fruit of a long and determined effort to make sense of humanity at its darkest and to achieve forgiveness, serenity and peace.’ – Deborah Orr, journalist.

‘An inspiring, powerful testimony that bears witness to the human search for meaning and shows a generosity of spirit that grips heart and mind.’ – Ursula King, author of The Search for Spirituality: Our Global Quest for Meaning and Fulfilment

‘The grace of the author’s words casts transfiguring light on the ugliest cruelty and sorest loss.’ – Stephen Cherry, author of Healing Agony: Re-Imagining Forgiveness

‘A profound testament to how horrific evil and suffering can transform into redemptive forgiveness and healing.’ – David Loy, author of Money, Sex, War, Karma
