Another West classic! This book brings together history and believable fiction with a couple of interesting sub-plots. A good read.

"a perennial literary classic thriller that is an intermixture of politics and religion, which explores the behind-the-process investigative scenes of Catholic saint making. But that is really only the backdrop to the totality of the story, for the real narrative deals with the world weary and cynical English devil's advocate, Fr. Blaise Meredith, a man who has been informed that due to an illness, his life expectancy has been shortened. With such a blow, he submissively complies to that which he can not prevent from happening: death."

" Few modern novels have the emotional nor spiritual depth to delve so profoundly into the truth of the human person as this West classic. Rooted very much into the "Catholic" experience, yet going beyond just religious tradition, Morris West reaches into the struggle of being a whole person in a world that so seeks to fragment and manipulate us."
