Format: Paperback
Dr Shannon waited decades to explain his resignation from the priesthood and from the Roman Catholic hierarchy. The story is well written and honest. Rome no longer appoints such young priests to the bishopric and this might be an example of the earlier error.

It is a well written insight into institutions and activities that usually are glossed over if they are mentioned at all.

I bought the book as the author is related to a dear friend....she loaned me the book and when I passed it on to another of her friends, I found I could not live without having it on hand to refer to and reread.
