The Believer

Sarah Krasnostein

From award-winning author Sarah Krasnostein comes an exploration of the power of belief.

Why do we believe?

Sarah Krasnostein spent the last four years in Australia and the US talking to some extraordinary people—people holding fast to belief, even as it rubs against the grain of more accepted realities.

Dying with autonomy. Facing transgressions with an open heart.

In this intensely personal and gorgeously written new book Krasnostein, the bestselling, multi-award-winning author of The Trauma Cleaner, talks with her trademark compassion and empathy to these believers—and finds out what happens when their beliefs crash into her own.
