The real strength of the book, for my money, is its character development - its depth of insight into the sundry and self-contradictory motives of each of the main characters kept me engaged, even more than the plot-line. The Archbishop, stuck between concerns over public perception and pastoral care for one of his priests, and Adelia (the Red Madonna of the title, although by the book's end, it isn't yet quite apparent what, if any, significance attaches to the moniker), caught between concerns for Truth and Compassion, on the one hand, and her own vast ambition on the other, were the most intriguingly-drawn characters, for my part.
If the book has a weakness (and it is far from a fatal one), it is that the `good guys' are REALLY good, and the `bad guys' are REALLY bad - it could seem a tad `cartoonish'. But that doesn't detract from the story itself; as far as it goes, Fr. Reilly gives a strong example of wrestling with his own conscience and choosing the right, even if he might prefer something easier.
The Red Madonna is the first book of a planned trilogy, which is good to know, because there's a lot of `unfinished business' by the end of the book.Read more ›

I had a hard time following this book. Too many characters and hard to keep up with who was who.Published on May 1, 2014 by Michele Germain
Very good story. The author knows Christian beliefs and shares them in a formative non judgmental way. This book is a definite good find.Published on March 11, 2014 by Alie Schoening
