Round out your reading of European life at the time of the French Revolution with this cultural commentary on life in a small, Portuguese town. How criminal can a Catholic priest be yet continue to absolve himself of responsibility for what happens? This author enjoyed reading Dickens, and it shows. Begin at your own risk! Guaranteed to touch a nerve.
