really liked it

I just finished this book and very much enjoyed the questions that the book raises: 1) What is the role of faith in overcoming personal hardship and tragedy? 2) How does the institution of the Catholic Church deal with visions and visionaries? What tests are placed on personal experiences to discern legitimate spiritual experience from mental illness or from chicanery? 3) How are other people impacted by the fervor of one person's faith?

David Guterson is a skilled writer who casts wonderful scenes with rich dialogue. He uses humor, plot twists, and local lore to keep the story lively and engaging.
