In this intimate collection of writing and art, Brian J. Francis invites us to explore the sacred space within.

Eclipsing space and time, Francis words and art resonate with deep texture, hope, colour, and mastery.

The result is a shimmering testament to his Mi’kmaq ancestors, and a pledge to the next generation. Guiding us beyond spirit and nation boundaries, this eloquent read is ideal for anyone seeking sanctuary, sacred space, and a comfortable seat at their own altar.
