“Maine minister Kate Braestrup offers a relaxed, realistic, and quietly awed reflection on the institution of matrimony. Widowed and remarrying while performing weddings for others, she is kind, funny, and thoughtful, and her thorough explorations allow room for mystery and grace.”
— Mark David Bradshaw, Watermark Books, Wichita, KS

Kate Braestrup has been married and widowed, betrayed and betrothed, her personal spirituality constantly evolving along the way. How do God and love figure in our everyday lives and bonds with others? In MARRIAGE, AND OTHER ACTS OF CHARITY, she tackles these big questions with stories from her own relationships--romantic and familial, platonic and professional--much as Anne Lamott weaves her spirituality through her tales of parenthood.
