    Thank you, Father, for an interesting perspective in your review. My tastes tend to be towards “great” books (I teach the classics) so let me recommend a Nobel Prize winning work of fiction, written by a devout Catholic: “Kristen Lavransdatter.” Your commutes will become times when you are transported back to medieval Norway, and learn “the story of a soul.” (Yes, I just compared it to St. Therese!) The trilogy of Kristen Lavransdatter is a tale of disobedience, charity, and final acceptance of one’s choices in the redeeming Light of Christ. Also sacraments, adventure, war, romance, and holy friars. Enjoy!
