FACT: In 2002, criminal charges were brought against five Roman Catholic priests in the Boston area. More and more victims came forward leading to more criminal charges and ultimately more arrests. People were shocked as secrets were revealed.

Faith takes place in 2002 in Boston. When Art McGann, a local pastor is accused of molesting a young boy, his sister Sheila McGann returns to town determined to find the truth and to redeem her brother. The story told from the perspective of Art as well as his siblings is being described as a “gripping suspenseful tale.”

  2. Wow! This is a heady topic. I did a movie “Our Fathers” in 2005. It was a true story about the abuse in the Catholic Church in Boston.
    Susan, I’d like to join you reading another book. I won’t get this one read in time, but as soon as you know next month’s book give me a heads-up!
    I should have some holiday time for reading. Thanks – Resa

  3. Hi Resa! I am glad you are reading along with us. I am actually planning to listen to this months book and just picked up the audio book from the library. It was just sitting on the shelf waiting for me! January’s book is Once We Were Brothers by Ronald Balson. Both are supposed to be excellent books.
