I honestly don’t know how many times I have read this book. Yet I learn something new at each sitting. The people become so real, so urgent. You find yourself part of their community with their fears and hungers, their seeking of life in a hard place. And finally they find out who they are and where they are meant to be. The priest finally becomes a man of the people forty years too late. A complex book written so well with so much that makes you question what life is really about.
Very good story. Taylor Caldwell was way ahead of her time in detailing the course of this country today.
A prophetic warning applicable for 2018 National climate. Self reflection would be advised, especially by those seeking power. Amen and amen.
Fantastic book is like reading the pages of the New York Times on a slow day. I love Caldwell she knew just how lay the story out.
This is my all-time favorite of Taylor Caldwell's writings! I love The Listener as well! She's amazing and I wish I had lived at a time that I could have met her because she's so interesting.
This is my favorite writer. Her novel is relevant today. Her ability to understand human nature is revealed through her characters actions and dialogue. The plot is imaginative and insightful in politics, economics, psychology and greed. It details the effect of the actions of a few in the lives of a whole country. Although some of the vocabulary is dated, her warning through the pages of this novel is timeless.
I just finished reading it. Was left with feelings of concern as well as hope.
This was a replacement for a great read.
I must admit that this is the third time I have read this particular novel. The first time I read it, I was 17 and had not previously enjoyed reading. After reading it, something in it spoke to me. I read it again while in my thirties and just recently as a 57 year old. I still could not put it down. West gives life to a broken-down, cancer ridden priest who has lived his life without any passion while working in the archives of the Vatican. He is sent to a small town in the poorest section of Italy on his last assignment. There, he comes alive as he researches the life of man who was known to many as a Saint. As he becomes involved in the lives of those who played a role in the "Saint's" life, he learns what it is like to live in the shoes of characters he must interview. It is a beautiful story in many ways and shows the humanity and friendship which develops between the sick priest and the Jewish doctor who attends to his needs.
