It's hard to pin-point whether this book is a religious book or a book about religion. The characters, command of language and story-line have depth and sensitivity which goes beyond your average book. But at times, the predictability of the story arc as well as some of the cookie-cutter peripheral characters diluted the rich text. One thing that I keep coming back to is the great quotes in the book. Gail Godwin has a talent for writing about morality without sounding preachy and for coming up with one-liners without sounding cliche or anecdotal. Over all, a compelling enriching read, a perfect meeting between light reading and "think piece"s.
