Overview

Successful in both his personal and professional life, Rochas Sulpice faces an unexpected crisis at a key point in his life. At first, the event appears to have the typical consequences. But as time passes, Rochas realizes that the event has propelled him into a fire, a destructive yet noble fire of redemption that begins isolating him from the world.

In the period of a few short, intense weeks, his traditional perception of life disintegrates. Although he feels as if he is losing his mind, the simple fact is that Rochas is evolving, changing into a new person, summoning within himself the courage to face both himself and the falsehoods of the life he always led.

Then, in the span of a few months our hero becomes a champion of an internal revolution that lies in the soul of all men. He seeks help from past acquaintances and fails, yet finds an unexpected and sympathetic friend in Monsignor Battista Lasaled. With the clergyman's help, Rochas begins the arduous process of redefining himself, a process that may not be necessarily linked to faith. What he learns may quite possibly set him on the path to his, and our, most challenging discovery yet...

    Really liked

    Recommended at Georgetown University book club as a sophisticated and relevant drama that moves quickly and examines the emotions surrounding the ultimate trauma of life. Also found it at an independent book store in my hometown of Boston.

    intense

    emotionally intense. it's about a young doctor that has a deep personal loss and how it frames his whole life, including his beutiful girlfriend and his friends and career/family afterward. he has a super interesting trip to mexico and meets some interesting people. it was kind of movie like and profound. wish it had been longer, in fact.

    intriguing

    heard about this one on my visit to washington. very interesting and easy to read. it is almost as though the author is talking to you. it was a bit short, in my opinion, but very philosophical and deep. it feels as though the main character is in your mind, and as though you are walking down the streets of washington with him. amazing reading for sure. the emotional realism in this work is exceptional. highly recommend it.
