Recommends it for: Patrick
Coming from Chicago I could readily identify with the politics and areas of the city. The writer is a priest and has a different slant on a great deal. The love scenes were written very differently with alot of feeling - a bit involved but of course I skipped over them - but be prepared. The story was believable and well written.

Not my favorite Geeley book, but an okay summer book read. I finished this up in Michigan at the cottage, so left it there for another visitor to pick up and read. I've been reading Andrew Greeley's books for years and years. Usually 2 or 3 in a row, then I don't read anymore for a couple of years. I'll have to do a 'good reads' search and see how many books he's written!
