I am so glad I found the Kindle edition.

Enjoyed the time period of the early 20th century, and the religious subject and insight of the running of the church.

The characters are well-drawn, and most of them major characters are given detailed treatment.

Format: Paperback
This is a very enjoyable read. The protagonist is very real and very likable, and his various activities and encounters are beautifully depicted. The story of a young priest at the time of WW I, the book gives a very good picture of the Catholic church in those days, some of its politics and some of the life of the people in the parishes. We feel real human emotion and suffer through the perplexing problems faced by Father Fermoyle and his fellow priests of the archdiocese of Boston Massachusetts. Many lessons of life to be learned here in the way the characters behave and the choices they make. Highly recommended.

This is a wonderful book; I have the hardest time, anymore, finding books and authors that I like, that keep me turning the pages to the end and holding my interest. And it's also getting harder every day to find books with no smut and filthy language! I have been a protestant for 50 years, but I have read several Catholic novels in the last few years that are truly inspiring and draw me closer to God. I love this story, and wish he'd written many more. Definitely a 5-star!

You don't have to be Catholic to love this story. Very touching so far. The characters and historical settings are to be cherished. I am so glad I found the Kindle edition.

Henry Morton Robinson has written a timeless tale of a Roman Catholic priest who ascends to the position of Cardinal. He is not a "fairy tale" priest with no faults, but one who fairly represents the backbone of the Church. His view of Stephen Fermoyle is sympathetic, and by the end of the book, the reader feels as if he has known Stephen for a long time. The characters are well-drawn, and most of them major characters are given detailed treatment.

I re-read this novel on a regular basis. I find it helps me to find my center spiritually, and reminds me of the eternal nature of both the church and myself.

Highly enjoyable, well written with strong character development. This story is entertaining as well as an insight into the Catholic Church during the first half of the 20th century.

For the genre, a lovely, moving account of a Catholic cleric's life with great character development.. not to be gobbled down from preface to finish like a bag of potato chips.. spend some time with it....

First, let me say this has always been one of my favorites since I first read it somewhere in the 1960's. that is the tip of the hat. This, however, is a tremendously flawed electronic copy. That everywhere in the book, the city of Malden (a major setting) is spelled Maiden, that anyone named Al has it spelled A 1, to the hero gazing on the Constellation Sinus (where is that, in the nose nebula?), to a huge over abundance of hyphenated words almost always smack in the middle of the sentence, makes you long for the day when publishers employed editors to winkle out those problem. Save your money. Trying find a used hard copy somewhere - it will be really worth the extra money.
