Crimes of the Father
A NovelBook - 2017
Father Frank Docherty is unwittingly pulled into the lives of two people - a young man, via his suicide note, and an ex-nun - both of whom claim to have been sexually abused by a prominent monsignor. Docherty decides he must confront each party involved and try to bring the matter to the attention of both the Church and the secular authorities. What follows will shake him to the core and call into question many of his own choices. This riveting, profoundly thoughtful novel is an exploration of what it is to be a person of faith in the modern world.
