Editorial Reviews

Frank West
The author of this serious, but funny and earthy novel ... writes with great humor and creates colorful characters. The character of the parish priest is particularly accurate ... how do I know this accuracy? The pastor of the parish I grew up on was an Irish American but he could have been from another time in Ireland and plopped here in Chicago.
An explosive mix of true love, lust, lies, husbands, clergy, wives !!!
