The late William X. Kienzle is best known for his Father Koesler mysteries, starring priest/detective Father Robert Koesler. Here, we go back to Father Koesler's past, to a time when young Catholic men and women were encouraged, even expected to become priests and nuns. Kienzle follows a group of young men and women through the paths of their religious life, as they test their commitment, their faith, and their vocation against the high standards of the Catholic Church. Together and separately, they struggle, making difficult choices and facing guilt. Now, twenty years later, one of their number has been murdered, and Father Koesler must intervene to solve the case and tie up the unspoken threads of the common life they have chosen.
