Il Pane della Vita
by Coralie Hughes Jensen
Witnesses believe an explosion at a hermitage high in the Tuscan Apennines is a miracle. When a body is not found in the rubble, the Church concludes Brother Pietro, a hermit, must have been propelled into heaven. Though devout, the brother has a secret past. Father Sergio, assistant to the bishop, asks Sister Angela to live among the monks in the monastery and verify the miracle for the Church.
