Overview

"A superb, stunningly written novel." The Philadelphia Inquirer
Raised by five intensely religious women and a charismatic, controversial priest, sheltered from the secular world, Felicitas Maria Taylor is intelligent, charming, and desperate for a taste of ordinary happiness. More freedom than she has ever imagined awaits her at Columbia University in the 1960s. There, Felicitas falls in love with the worst man for her — with shattering results. Now she must turn again to the company of the women who love her as she struggles to embrace the future without betraying the past.
