Then about a third of the way into the book the story diverts into the life of Gena Mancuso a beautiful, promiscuous, friend of Padre Pio. Seiden elaborates on her sexual encounters and demonic manifestations; which degrade the book in a terrible way. Then comes the lustful, inappropriate stories of Victoro Francelli, another friend of Padre Pio. Victoro Francelli's demonic manifestations and veracious sexual appetites, pull away from the original story of the Capuchin Monk.
A warning to the readers about the use of profanity and illicit sexual content, may just surprise some, but it is warranted. I am deeply saddened that the book could not have centered on the godly aspects of the monk, rather than the dirty demonic manifestations of friends. It would have gotten the five stars that it deserves.
