As the highly respected L’Arche Daybreak community of Ontario, Canada marks its 50th anniversary, this beautifully-written memoir tells the inside story of daily life shared by a community of people with and without learning disabilities. It is full of touching, sometimes amusing, but always life-affirming stories, and formational moments from the lives not only of author Beth Porter, who has been a part of the Daybreak community across four decades, but also of many others (including writer and pastor Henri Nouwen) alongside whom she lived and worked in this time. ‘Beth has particular gifts in writing, and her love for L’Arche and its people shines through this book. These stories can invite us into reflection on our own interactions and experiences.’ From the Foreword by Jean VanierBeth Porter
