I found the premise of this book intriguing. The backdrop for this story is the horrifying, headline-making sex abuse scandal involving Catholic priests. The setting is Boston in 2002, when the Boston archdiocese was in the midst of this scandal. It relates how one priest’s family is torn apart when allegations are made against him. The story is narrated by the priest’s sister.
I was pulled into this family’s tragic situation from the start. The unexpected twists and turns kept me engrossed to the end. Throughout the book, the question remains: Is he guilty or innocent? Most importantly for me, each character is well-drawn and authentic.
