This is one best book I have read recently. I just cannot keep the book down, thanks for the narration & suspense it had all thru the book. Recently my friend gave me this old book. When I read it,I found how a book can shake you by its near-real life characters. The flashbacks told by Nina can be stilled seen in my mind.
I am not Catholic or Christian, but the soul of the story is universal - its faith.... It tells how faith can make a ordinary man to move closer to heaven. It can be just one more proof - for the beleif that the earth revolves on the axis of truth.Giacomo Nerone, proves his miracles are none other than faith. Faith in god, truth & himself.
The writer gives a moving picture of the Italian village, depth view of the happening in Church during early 20th century. The story moves in the eyes of Devil's advocate which gives us balanced view of Nerone.The letters writen by Nerone to the doctor, latter read by dev. adv. is the best part of the book. I recommend this book for those who like to be disture to their inner-soul.
