The Seeker and the Monk by Sophfronia Scott was reviewed by Publishers Weekly (circ. 16.5K, 1.3 million uvm).

Referring to the book as a “pleasing introduction to the thinking of Trappist monk Thomas Merton,” the review goes on to sum up: “Part biography and part spiritual meditation, this enjoyably amorphous work will appeal to Christians and general spiritualists alike.”
