About the book:
This warmhearted memoir describes how a small, insecure boy with a vibrant imagination found an unlikely family in the company of monks at Holy Trinity Abbey, in the mountains of rural Latter-day Saint Utah. Struggling with his parents' recent divorce, Michael O'Brien discovered a community filled with warmth, humor, idiosyncrasies, and most of all, listening ears. Filled with anecdotes and delightful "behind the scenes" descriptions of his experiences living alongside the monks as they farmed, prayed, buried their dead, ate, and shared the joys of life, Monastery Mornings speaks to the value of spiritual fatherhood, the lasting impact of positive mentoring, and the stability that the spiritual life can offer to people of all ages and walks of life. 

Reminder! Masks are required! Our mask requirement remains in effect at this time, for the safety and comfort of all of our visitors. Please note that we are maintaining a no-exceptions mask policy and other safety protocols. We are mindful of those who are not fully vaccinated, those who cannot be vaccinated due to age or health conditions, those who are immunocompromised, and those who have vulnerable individuals in their homes and families. For the time being, a mask requirement is how we keep The King’s English Bookshop a welcoming, safe space for everyone in our community. 

So don’t forget your mask, regardless of your vaccination status, and thanks for your cooperation! (If you don't have a mask when you visit, we can provide a one-time use mask for you at the door.)

We deeply appreciate your continued support, so thank you!
