Weeellll...this was certainly diferent from the book I read immediately proceeding this one (A Miracle for St. Cecilia's). Both were "Catholic" themed, but boy, what a difference instyle, content and perception. This story was pretty good, the characters interesting. I'm curious weather or no the author actually is Catholic. Some of the messages thatthe main character were kinda out of line with what I understand to be Catholic dogma BUT that may have been intentional as the main character, although she reports seeing Mary - Mother of God, she herself is not Catholic. The style of the writing bothered me at times and I was annoyed at the lack of quotation marks. Um, like, really? What's the deal with that?
