Publisher's Summary

In the tradition of the spiritual classics The Shack and The Screwtape Letters comes a captivating and poignant debut novel from the revered Jesuit priest and New York Times best-selling author of Jesus and The Jesuit Guide to (Almost) Everything.
A divorced single mom, Anne can barely cope with life and struggles to make sense of the death of her young son.
A former architect with a promising career, Mark works as a handyman and wonders how his life got off track.
The abbot of the Abbey of Saints Philip and James, Father Paul sometimes questions whether he made the right decision in secluding himself so thoroughly from the world.
At this Pennsylvania abbey, this unlikely trio will discover the answers they seek - a miracle of hope and understanding that bears witness to the power of God to bring healing and wholeness to our lives.
Written with the compassion, insight, and warmth of his previous best sellers - Jesus, Between Heaven and Mirth, and The Jesuit Guide to (Almost) Everything - Father James Martin's debut novel is infused with deep spiritual wisdom, wry humor, and loving grace. Through his characters' struggles, questions, and crises, we see firsthand how God uses our worries, anger, doubts, prayers, failures, and longings to help us complete ourselves and feel wholly loved.

Just boring - start to finish.

I kept waiting for something to happen. No real plot, no real story and the FIRST TIME. E V E R . hearing the Holy Name taken in an audiobook.
Waste of money and I won't be buying any more from this author.

Brings magic to the ordinary

I really enjoyed this book. It gives a good example of how God works in people's lives in ways you would never imagine. Two thumbs up.
