Praise for “A Truthful Man”

Gripping, shocking and a brilliant read!

I couldn’t put this book down. I was shocked at what is happening in the Catholic church today, and found the interplay with the characters totally engrossing. There’s corruption, scandal and a real comeuppance, but there is healing and forgiveness too. The passion of the author for this shows through in the plot, which brings the book so alive. I hope that lots of people will read this and become aware of what is going on in the church, and maybe begin to bring a change. – Anna Rashbrook

Great characters and awesome story!

This is a very Catholic story … BUT you don’t have to be Catholic to enjoy it. The story was realistic and moved at good pace. There is controversy, corruption, and a reminder that no one is unredeemable. – MaryEllen

He would rather risk losing his vocation than lose his soul.

Mark Boulder is riding high until his wife discovers his extra-marital affair. Then her brother, the bishop confronts him with rumors of a far worse scandal which could ruin his flourishing investment business.

Father James is happy in his tiny coastal parish – until he’s handed evidence of serious wrongdoing by ex-university friend, Mark Boulder, which he is obliged to take to his bishop. When the priest refuses to drop the case, the bishop swiftly retaliates.

An alarmed Mark also tries to dissuade Father James from pursuing justice against him, but the pastor’s concern is the man’s eternal salvation not his secular ambition. He stands firm, and suffers yet more retribution from Mark’s brother-in-law, the bishop.

Details of Mark’s malfeasance has reached the media and he is now wanted by the police. His reputation is in ruins and he is shunned by his wife and children and the bishop. The only person who can save him is the priest whose vocation he has destroyed.

Can Mark humble himself to ask Father James for his forgiveness?

Even if he does, why should the betrayed priest help him?
