The Cause of Reason

One woman's search for peace

Don Smith


Worldly realities and unworldly possibilities meet in this unique and enticing combination of literature and spirituality!Have you ever looked at the sky at night and wondered how exceedingly small and insignificant we are against the backdrop of the cosmos? Then you are in good company… The Cause of Reason is a philosophical and spiritual journey of the mind. Ideas about life, time, truth,and creation are mingled in a worldly story about one woman’s search for meaning after the death of her husband and son.

Mary’s quest for answers eventually brings her peace and a very particular understanding of much broader questions – the sort of questions that humankind has been asking since the beginning of time. Set in the Newlands Valley in 18th century Cumberland – a place that captures and then holds people’s attention – its raw, elemental nature is an unchanging backdrop to life: a constant reminder of powerful forces and the mysteries of creation.
