A priest experiencing a crisis of faith and the married woman to whom he is attracted. A scroll newly discovered near Jerusalem that, if authentic, could open Christianity to a complete reinterpretation. A tragic love affair unfolding in Fascist-dominated Rome during World War II.
These are the elements of a magnificent literary entertainment — a novel that resonates with tales of love and betrayal as it deals profoundly with questions of faith and what it means to believe. It is at once a love story, a thriller, and a rich novel of ideas.
