    V, if you're looking for this one, too, it's another you gave to me as you left for the Peace Corps. What really struck me about this one was how clear the setting seemed. It made me want to go drive around Maspeth. It was engaging and thought-provoking: the thoughts it provoked were mostly about people's roles in religion.

    Vetere should have done more research about the Catholic Church. He mixed up parts of the Mass,consecrating the wine before the bread. He did not know that people who commit suicide can be buried in a catholic cemetery and it takes much longer to be canonized than he allowed in his novel. The explicit sex detracted from the story.

    This is a wonderful book (and the movie that was made, based upon the novel is a must-see). The characterization is wonderful and the story is magical. The author writes it so well, the reader gets lost in the story. I think it's a definite 'good read'. :)

    Novel about a questioning scholarly priest - his issues about faith, love and whether there are really saints and miracles. He was assigned to find out if there was a "third miracle". A good read to understand some of the inner workings/infighting in the Catholic Church. Thought provoking.

    When Helen Stephenson a woman from New York is being considered for canonization, Father Frank Moore is sent to investigate her life and her miracles.

    The basis of an excellent movie starring Ed Harris and Anne Heche. The book is different but wonderful in its own way, about the roles of faith and love and self-doubt in our lives.

    Very good story. I read it in one day. Everyone has doubts - especially a priest dealing with a miracle. What roles people play in religion?
