Abigail Carroll loves to wander in the woods of Vermontbut it was a period when Carroll couldn’t wander that led to the creation of her new book. Immobilized with a broken foot, Carroll found herself with ample time “to read, think, write, and dream,” and A Gathering of Larks was born.
A Gathering of Larks is a series of poetic letters to St. Francis, a character who has held Carroll’s fascination since a childhood trip to Assisi. These letterspart devotion, part historical biography, part contemporary engagement, and part inspirationreveal Carroll's curiosity and wonder about Francis.
