I enjoyed the novel, but it would be far better for some good sub-editing. I lost count of the number of typos, together with clangers such as repeated use inappropriate of English instead of British, and some serious historical mistakes. Put all those right, which is not a big task, and this would be an excellent read

Curiosity made me choose the book. It was slow to start with. But an amazingly book full of information about the church and the Vatican. A thrilling end. I would recommend this book to all readers.

A wonderful story of a Catholic Priest, who although very human, still follows God's lead. For any Christian who sometimes cannot understand God's hand on them, this story will keep you motivated.

5.0 out of 5 stars History Lesson 23 Aug. 2013
By Spdysk8r - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
This is not the sort of book I would normally pick up because it is about two subjects for which I thought I had no interest: the Catholic Church and World War history. I read it because it was recommended by a friend of mine, the author's niece! The book covered a priest and his family life and their individual tragedies and a woman that tempted his heart with a strength that nearly equaled his commitment to Christ. The story follows the priest and his world travels and advancement through the Catholic religion. Eventually although he tried to work as a peaceful man, World War II broke out and his dearly beloved friend was captured and taken the the Nazi camps. He had a vision and devised a scheme to rescue his friend but in doing so he had to dress and act like a German soldier and witness the brutal treatment and gas chambers that had been established to rid the world of Jews as if he supported it. This book is a history lesson, a love story, a story of family and friendship, growing up and growing old all rolled into one. Because of my lack of interest in history, there were a few points where I didn't know if I could finish the book, but I am so happy I did as I learned so much and better realized human nature and history

3.0 out of 5 stars COULD HAVE BEEN A FIVE STAR..... 16 Jan. 2014
By JAYDEE HALE - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
But for the shallowness of the "love affair" between Richard and Elizabeth. They met at a party, she went to dinner with Richard and his brother, Joe. She had lunch with Richard the next day and their next encounter found them in bed. That is sleazy to me....
The story had so much good content in the telling of all the events of WWII and the behind the scenes of the involvement of the Catholic church and especially the role Richard secretly played over the years. The detail of the concentration camps, the capturing of the Jews, the killing of millions was written so well. Very well researched.
Several years would go by as the war advanced and it was hard to put this book down as the story was riveting but then Richard would take time off to visit his family and there was Elisabeth again just waiting to seduce him once again and at this point, the story loses all of its substance and has reverted back to something more worthy of a "True Confessions" magazine.
It is difficult for me to fathom "love" when they had spent less than ten hours together...that is lust, not love. It definitely detracts from what could have been a phenomenal book. I could have overlooked all the typos but when the story would go back to being sleazy, it would make the misspellings and misuse of words that much more pronounced.
I think the worst part of their affair is Richard's willingness to screw his brother over, knowing that Joe is in love with Elizabeth and her willingness to use Joe as a fill-in if Richard won't leave his church and his God for her. So I really can't recommend this book unless the reader wouldn't be bothered by the shallow aspect. I am Catholic so I am sure that has a bearing on my feelings of distaste.

It was a very good book, lots of historical facts especially about the catholic church during WW 2, that I did not know.
I am happy that I picked up that book even if there was only one review.

5.0 out of 5 stars Wonderful Interesting book 1 Jan. 2014
By Twin Two - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
I have an interest in the World War Two era so the on-line description caught my attention. I would like to state that I am not a Catholic, but I am a religious person. The combination of the two subjects really drew my interest. I found this to be an unusual and very moving story. It held my interest for the entire time I was reading. It highlighted the fact that a priest can also be human. It also pointed out the love for mankind of a priest. There were some very real descriptions of the horrors of the war. The author weaved some of the church politics throughout the story which was educational for me. I did find a few missing words in the text, however, it did not detract from the book. Also, the actions of the nazis and the priest together were somewhat unbelievable but they did add to the story. I would highly recommend this book to anyone who enjoys a good story during that era in the world.
