Publisher's Summary

Only God knew why Jillian Slater agreed to return to New Orleans on the news that her father had finally drunk himself to death. It's not like they were close. She hadn't seen him - or her grandmother, the ice queen - in almost 20 years. But when Adella Atwater, the manager of her grandmother's apartment house, called and said her expenses would be paid if she'd fly in for the burial, a free trip to New Orleans was too intriguing to resist.
What Adella didn't tell her was that the apartment house wasn't a house at all - and that whatever it was, it bore the dead weight of a long and painful history. As soon as Jillian meets the odd assortment of renters and realizes that her grandmother had no idea she was coming, she hatches a plan to escape. But the investigation into her father's death quickly unfolds and Jillian is drawn into the lives of the colorful collection of saints and sinners who pass through Saint Silvanus. She soon discovers there is more at stake than she ever imagined. Who is behind the baffling messages and the strange relics left on the steps? Is it possible that her family is actually cursed? Or is it just this crazy old house that holds them all under its spell?
Jillian walks into a web of spiritual and personal danger borne out of her family's broken history, and despite Adella's wiliest efforts, only God himself can orchestrate the undoing of all that is going on at Saint Silvanus.

Gripping and Thrilling to the Very End

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

I would highly recommend this book to anyone, particularly of the Christian faith, though you'd enjoy it regardless. It's full of a lot of twists and turns and deep and complex characters that constantly have to re-evaluating everything you know.

What other book might you compare The Undoing of Saint Silvanus to and why?

Honestly the book I would mostly compare it took would be akin to the circle trilogy by Ted Dekker, though the plots are vastly different. It's the feel and the constant shocking moments from both that hit a similar chord.

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

I wept several times reading this book as I was so invested in the characters by the half-way point.

Any additional comments?

This has actually become my second favorite book ever read, and I'm grateful for having the chance to enjoy it.

What a GREAT Book for Beth Moore first book!

This was a great book! I love Beth Moore, and this book was a great listen. The Performance was great also. I loved the way Jillian's grandmother sounded, so dry. While it was mysterious, it was great to see a family come together.

Prefer Beth’s bible studies

Quite good but not great. Too many metaphors throughout, felt excessive. Didn’t really enjoy the voices created by the narrator. Didn’t like the main character much, just a bit too helpless and pathetic. Prefer Beth’s bible studies.
