"creative theological mystery"
After graduating from Cambridge Theological Seminary, Lily
Connor becomes an ordained Episcopalian priest. At present
she is the interim pastor of Tate University located a few
miles from Harvard in Cambridge, Massachusetts. One day
while counseling a student in her office, Samantha Lamb-
Henderson walks in and says she want to get reacquainted
with Lily. Lily feels the professor has a hidden agenda
because when they attended seminary school together they
were just acquaintances, not friends.
Lily's suspicions soon prove right when Samantha confides
in her. Samantha's assistant, Francine, has been getting
photographs in the mail that look like they could be the
mythical Q document, the second source document for the
Gospels of Luke and Mark. If it is proven to exist and is
authenticated it will be the most important religious
revelation in over a millennium. However, Lily, Samantha,
and Francine are all being followed and it is clear that
these individuals want the photographs and will go to any
lengths to retrieve them.
Readers will absolutely adore the protagonist who knows
that she doesn't have all the answers and at times, her
faith, the foundation of her life, can be shook. She is
believable as she is willing to go the extra mile to see if
the photographs could be the Q source and is even willing
to accept the danger that goes along with that mission.
Michelle Blake writes a creative theological mystery that
will enthrall readers with its insights into the realities
of organized religion.
