This is the story of a Protestant young woman and her journey to the Roman Catholic Church. The fascinating novel is set in ninete...enth-century England-a time when Catholicism was regarded with suspicion and prejudice against Catholics was commonplace. Leaving her sheltered life in the countryside, young Clem becomes acquainted with the fascinating ideas and people of Oxford-including a brilliant young clergyman, John Henry Newman. But when her relationship to a Roman Catholic man with a colorful reputation leads to an Italian elopement that is more innocent than it appears, the scandal drives a wedge between Clem and the upright Anglican circle of friends and family she left behind. Woven into the story of Clem and Augustine, their courtship and marriage, and Clems conversion, is the vital, influential, and holy Newman, as seen through the eyes of friends. Meriol Trevors engaging plot charts the ongoing friendship between Newman and the couple as it spans many years during which pivotal historical influences, such as the Industrial Revolution and the Oxford Movement, are shaping Victorian England. Many important events, personages, and ideas in the life of Newman appear in the story-his reasons for becoming a Roman Catholic, his differences with Cardinal Manning, his work in the Birmingham Oratory, and his being made a cardinal by Pope Leo XIII. The author, a renowned biographer of Newman, used Newmans actual correspondence as the basis for his parts in the dialogue.

The narrator of this book is a blue rock-thrush that spends most of his time on the dome of Saint Peters Basilica and in the Vatic...an gardens. The birds scientific name is Monticola Solitarius, and it really lives in these places. His name is Max, and from his solitary perch, Max observes everything in the vicinity, and he is fascinated by one human in particular: the Pope. Max tells readers what the Pope does on a typical day, and also about special moments in his life, such as the Popes apostolic trips. The book provides a delicate portrait of the Holy Fathers many responsibilities, and it helps us understand the Popes important obligations that he always strives to carry out with love, faith and dedication. Max talks about the Popes private and public audiences, his meetings with heads of state, and with children, important liturgical moments, and the Angelus. He also describes more curious events, such as the blessing of the lambs and of a fire truck. He tells us about the moments that the Pope devotes to writing and prayer. Max flies to see the Pope at his Summer home, Castel Gandolfo, and is sorry he cannot accompany him on his important apostolic trips, but is happy each time the Pope returns to the Vatican.
