From Tanis Helliwell, Teacher and Author: "As with the love of Rumi for Shams of Tabriz, Carol Sill’s sufi friend Shamcher opens her heart more and more until the love fills us, the reader, with the same essence of joy and awe. It is a gift of grace to experience such a deep love in a lifetime and another gift of grace to share this love with the world ..."

From Carol Sokoloff, author and editor: "..This book documents a very touching relationship of spiritual friendship, told in the series of letters exchanged over the course of three years, as Shamcher revealed a world of mystical thought wrapped in everyday practicality. Anyone who ever had the privilege of receiving a letter from Shamcher knows the ecstatic joy, tremendous humour and waves of thought that accompanied them. The book unfolds a grand adventure of mystical awareness..."

From Ann Mortifee and Paul Horn: "We love the cover. We love the feeling. We love that the time has come to share these beautiful letters. It is wonderful to see the depth of your expression as a young woman, Carol. And what an extraordinarily sensual and rich love relationship, one based in spirit, yet somehow connecting heaven to the earthly longings of the heart. The rare and perfect timing of how the beloved teacher/friend appeared at the precise moment of your greatest need, is…

From Amidha Porter, Sufi Guide and psychotherapist: "My dear friend Carol Sill has just published a very wonderful book, a collection of the letters written between her and Murshid Shamcher (Bryn) Beorse, one of Pir-o-Murshid Hazrat Inayat Khan’s chief students, named by him as “the esoteric inner head of the Sufi Order” during and after his life, for the diplomatic work and amazing teaching he gave during his lifetime, a very special containment for the nascent Sufi Message of that time....

From isabella mori, writer & psychologist: "...Shamcher’s acceptance and humility show themselves literally in every letter, it is the many strands of gold that shoot through the book. He smiles upon the various factions within the Sufi community, never criticizes harshly, sees value in everyone..."

From  Donaleen Saul, Writer, Editor, Creativity Coach. http://donaleensaul.com "...These lines from Rumi’s Mathnavi, exemplify the unique relationship between Carol and Shamcher:  "Not only the thirsty seeks the water,  but the water seeks the thirsty as well.    What is evident in the correspondence between Carol and Shamcher is that the relationship between Mureed and Murshid is not a one-way transmission between one who knows and one who doesn’t, but a dynamic interchange that impacts…

From Nancy Mortifee, Mindfulness Coach: "...The relationship between spiritual teacher and student is uniquely intimate and mysterious. It calls upon us to expand our limited definitions of love, lovers and the Beloved. In Carol Sill’s book “Letters”, we are invited to witness such an expanded love relationship between souls. The discourse is deeply personal and yet the wisdom transmission between teacher and student speaks to each of us and is universally accessible..."

From artist James K-M - In this state, openings were created that seem to have allowed a flow of metaphysical communication and guidance from their higher selves, or God. The Letters do more than just document this process of the heart and mind but also express a pattern for the attainability of such contact with the holy for anyone.
