View from the choir

I am a Catholic layperson and Secular Franciscan with a sense of humor. After years in the back pew watching, I have moved into the choir. It's nice to see faces instead of the backs of heads. But I still maintain God has a sense of humor - and that we are created in God's image.

Bill Kassel's "Holy Innocents": Good Read

My quest to read more Catholic fiction lead me to Holy Innocents, a novel by Bill Kassel.

I'm glad it did.

The story is well written. It has a good plot - and the mystery held my attention. I also found the characters not only believable, but worth caring about.

Plus, it had a pro-life theme, and the main character is a church musician. All to the better!

It's not a "classic," but well worth the read. It was good enough that I plan to read Kassel's second novel, This Side of Jordan, in the near future.

Of course, I have ulterior motives: Inspiration for my own writing. Reading more books like this will help me in my efforts.
