Review by: mary walker on Oct. 20, 2012 : (no rating)
Every Catholic, every resident of Vatican should read this novella. It points the way to the future of the Catholic church in America and worldwide. And while doing, does so in a fascinating fashion, plunging into high church politics, murder and intrigue. Summing it up: Delightful.
