       Jessica Powers (1905-1988), one of the outstanding religious poets of 20th-century America, demonstrates in her life the intimate connection between art and contemplation. Born and reared in rural Wisconsin, her adventuresome spirit drew her to New York City in the 1930s where she soon became part of the Catholic literary revival. In 1941, as her work was claiming critical attention and winning applause, she abruptly left New Yourk's artistic environment for a Carmelite monastery. There for 47 years, in silence and solitude, she explored the mysteries of the human soul and the mystery of God, fashioning poetry out of her discoveries. Winter Music is a biography of Jessica Powers, a poet and nun, whose life and work reveal the intimate connectbetween art and the contemplative way of life. It is a story of laughter and pain, of courage and creativity, a story of love.
