Born in Johannesburg to a Catholic mother and a Jewish father, Michelle Friedman practises Catholicism until her father divorces her mother and, at fourteen, converts her to Judaism. So begins a spiritual journey leading to Padre Pio, a priest who bears the stigmata, followed by ten years as a Catholic nun. The Soweto riots and a forbidden relationship point the way forward to secular life, but the death of her father and a traumatic event catapult Michelle back to her Jewish roots in Jerusalem. Later, in St. Louis and Seattle, Michelle discovers the harsh secrets of her childhood. Her healing continues, climaxing years later in India, where she reflects on her eventful life and her journeys, both outward and inward. God in All Worlds is the inspirational story of a woman's journey across four continents in her quest for spiritual fulfilment and emotional healing. Michelle steers the reader from shanty towns in South Africa to the Old City in Jerusalem and from the opulent hotels of Kolkata to the simple asceticism of Varanasi. A soul-searching odyssey and a disarmingly honest chronicle, this is a spiritual memoir unlike any other.
