Lynne Cooper

This beautiful book of meditations grew out of a series of severe and unexpected setbacks in the author’s life, which led to a profound sense of loneliness. From a place of utter desolation, she cried to Jesus for consolation and a deeper relationship with him. Thus began an intimate friendship in prayer, which was life-changing in its power and a continual invitation to be drawn ever more deeply into life with Christ.


From Desert of Loneliness to Garden of Love is an imagined dialogue between the soul and Jesus, inspired by the Song of Songs but based on the authentic sentiments of the author’s own experience of prayer. It is a book written from the heart, in the hope that others might discover their true identity as beloved of the Lord, and come to know that even the most painful emotions are a springboard to giving our heart to Jesus, who heals us and longs for us to be his alone.
