A powerfully human read, with well-drawn characters swimming in personal secrets and conflicts. Blackmail, embezzlement, and murder; sexualities, betrayals, and guilty consciences; priestly calling, family ties, and the milk of human compassion. The debut novel in the "Book of Psalms" series gives the reader a lot of material to enjoy and reflect upon, set against a delightful backdrop of High Church liturgy, music, and art.
