I have a book to recommend—Contrition by Maura Weiler. I first read an early draft of this manuscript in 2002 when Marua and I were in a critique group. I recently read an advanced copy for the book, which will be published in April by Simon and Schuster.
This is a story of two twin sisters who are reunited as adults. One is a nun and the other is a journalist who becomes interested in the nun’s phenomenal paintings. Both sisters’ lives change as a result. The book explores spirituality, creativity, relationships in a way that keeps the reader transfixed. I highly recommend Contrition.
