Vatican Waltz


The new novel fromthe award-winning author of Golfing with God and RevereBeach Boulevard is the story of a young Catholic woman jolted from aquietly devout life in Boston by a miraculous call to action.

Cynthia Piantedosi lives a quiet, unassuming life withher elderly father just outside of Boston. When she loses her belovedgrandmother as a child, her faith takes a turn for the devout, and she beginsexperiencing what she describes as “spells”—moments of such intense prayer thatshe loses herself. Uninterested in boys and a social life, she develops a deepfriendship with the parish priest, whose ideas are often seen as tooprovocative by his congregation but who encourages her to explore her spells. Whenhe dies in a suspicious hit-and-run accident, the spells intensify, and theirmessage begins to take shape: God is asking her to be the first female Catholicpriest. She reaches out to other unreceptive officials within the Catholicestablishment and is met with ridicule. Unable to tune out the divine messages,she leaves behind all that she knows, letting the power of her unswerving faithdrive her all the way to the Vatican in pursuit of a destiny she doesn’t fullyunderstand—and a turn of events that will rock the church to its foundation.
