My Inner Sky is the deep, peaceful exhale everyone needs right now and always. Mary Laura Philpott, author of I Miss You When I Blink   Mari Andrew has a jeweler s eye. She teaches us to look at the world, and then to look again to make a scared ritual of the ordinary, to search for magic in the mundane, and to excavate beauty from pain. Her collection of essays, My Inner Sky, is an enchanting, big-hearted study of how to navigate the in-betweenness of grief, illness, love and, ultimately, of healing. Through Andrew s stories, we travel through her innermost thoughts, the turbulent passages of her past, and all around the world Spain, Greece, Australia, France, and the streets of New York City. At each turn, she uncovers hard-earned coins of wisdom in the most unlikely places. This book is a wonder, and a must-read for the heartsick, the suffering, the lonely, the seeking, which is to say: All of us. Suleika Jaouad, author of Between Two Kingdoms A timely and modern prompt to allow, even celebrate, the full spectrum of emotion and experience into our lives, the pain, the splendor, and the many, many nuances in between. Zoë Foster Blake, author of Break-Up Boss
