I received a free advance e-copy of this book from the publisher through NetGalley in exchange for an honest review. What a wonderful story to read during the Christmas season. A priest is assigned to the parish of his youth. It seems at times that his tragic past has come back to haunt him. Hidden secrets from the past are revealed. There is death and more tragedy. At times it seems he has more than he can deal with. Shagtyme, the tiny pup that was rescued from a fire and grows into an amazing dog adds another dimension to the story. This priest has a way about him and a determination to not give up. In the end he is able to set things right. This is a beautiful story of redemption with a great plot and excellent character development. The dog is a great addition to the story. What a wonderful ending. This is a real keeper and well worth the read. ( )

Father Paul Wesley saw his epiphany and embraced it. The demons and debauchery that had blackened his soul and threatened to be his damnation had been dispatched. A life without meaning now had purpose. But for every ounce of good that thrives; there is an ounce of evil. The penance Father Wesley is asked to pay for his sins of the past comes at a price. The allegiance and dedication he has sworn to the Church and the men who run it comes into play. He is recruited to ease the conscience of one while playing nursemaid to the greed of another. The edict rendered, Father Wesley returns to the parish of his youth. But, unbeknownst to his superiors, he does so as his own man, not as the devious manipulator he has been asked to portray.… (more)
