This Winner of the 1982 Christopher Award Is Highly Acclaimed
“Fragile Curtain” is the most beautifully written book—Christian or secular—that I’ve read in years. It is full of wisdom and emotion and touched me so deeply it changed my life. This book is a classic, a book to be read and reread and given to friends.”
Today’s Christian Woman
An Award-Winning Account of a Spiritual Pilgrimage
In this deeply moving book, we join Karen Mains on her very personal journey through the crowded refugee warehouses of the world. She went on to write about the pain and suffering of these people. Instead they showed her the meaning of her own life. The sacredness of family. The miracle of love. The hope of birth—and death.
Karen dares us all to look at our lives: to assess the good—and the bad. To celebrate the joy and the blessing of family life. To be thankful that despite sorrow and suffering we dare to begin again.
KAREN BURTON MAINS is the award-winning author of five books, including Open Heart, Open Home and its sequel, Key to a Loving Heart, and a new book for the entire family, Tales of the Kingdom. She is a frequent speaker on “Chapel of the Air.”
