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!

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.
What a struggle for two people in love to eventually get hooked.

Andrew Greeley was a Roman Catholic priest, sociologist, journalist, and author of 50 best-selling novels and more than 100 works of nonfiction. For decades, Greeley entertained readers with such popular characters as the mystery-solving priest Blackie Ryan and the fey, amateur sleuth Nuala Anne McGrail. His books typically center on Irish-American Roman Catholics living or working in Chicago.
