While still a teenager, Patrick Leigh Fermor made his way across Europe, as recounted in his classic memoirs, A Time of Gifts and Between the Woods and the Water. During World War II, he fought with local partisans against the Nazi occupiers of Crete. But in A Time to Keep Silence, Leigh Fermor writes about a more inward journey, describing his several sojourns in some of Europe’s oldest and most venerable monasteries. He stays at the Abbey of St. Wandrille, a great repository of art and learning; at Solesmes, famous for its revival of Gregorian chant; and at the deeply ascetic Trappist monastery of La Grande Trappe, where monks take a vow of silence. Finally, he visits the rock monasteries of Cappadocia, hewn from the stony spires of a moonlike landscape, where he seeks some trace of the life of the earliest Christian anchorites. More than a history or travel journal, however, this beautiful short book is a meditation on the meaning of silence and solitude for modern life. Leigh Fermor writes, “In the seclusion of a cell—an existence whose quietness is only varied by the silent meals, the solemnity of ritual, and long solitary walks in the woods—the troubled waters of the mind grow still and clear, and much that is hidden away and all that clouds it floats to the surface and can be skimmed away; and after a time one reaches a state of peace that is unthought of in the ordinary world.”

The incredible series about a corrupt, galactic human empire and the alien threat to our existence continues. Its name is Stella Maris, the ‘star of the sea,’ a small world beyond the edge of the human Expansion, where a few men and women – Vetch and human alike – have made their homes. Fleeing persecution or oppression on their own worlds, here they have found peace and plenty, in communion with the otherworldly Weird. A few weeks ago, that harmony was threatened, when Delia Walker came seeking hope for the future, hunted by her enemies in the Expansion, and went into the portal. Now, impossibly, her daughter has walked out, a grown woman, and demanded passage to the Expansion’s capital. As more ships land on Stella Maris, bringing an end to the quiet obscurity the settlers have long cherished, a desperate race to carry Cassandra Walker to her destiny, and a resistance against those who would exploit Stella Maris for their own ends.

The story begins with the discovery of the New World, where Florida is a blank page waiting to be written on by Catholic explorers and clergy. The story follows the path of Catholicism as its seeds were introduced into our land, took root in Key West, and were nurtured in the parish of St. Mary Star of the Sea. Within two hundred pages of history, photos, and illustrations, Bernreuter has documented the fulfillment of the first missionaries to South Florida, from their first humble chapel, to the first parish church, and finally its designation as a minor basilica in 2012. Key West is the seventh oldest city in Florida, and St. Mary Star of the Sea is the third oldest Catholic parish. As you journey through this history you will relive the arrival of the Sisters of the Holy Names, the trials of the Jesuits, and the restoration by diocesan priests. All this and more, placed within the context of Key West's history throughout the centuries.
