Excellent story of an idealistic priest from NYC. who tries to stop the war in Vietnam and finds himself in a love triangle with an ex-nun and his best friend.

Absorbing reading, had to make myself quit to eat and do other trivial things. The heart-wrenching situation of the 'Trinity' tore me up. I sympathized with all three through the life-long love and friendship, the daily agony of watching that horrible war, and the betrayals that made them so very human. Praise God that He does forgive and restores us to Himself. Thank you, Mr. Carroll, for this insightful book.
