Lauren Wolfe is a troubled young writer who comes to the monastery in search of books on Heloise and Abelard. A hesitant Brother William, a Benedictine Monk, is the one assigned the task of helping her in the library. When Brother William notices scars on her wrists from a failed suicide attempt he leaves the monastery behind and tracks Lauren down in New York City. There he is known as Peter and he is on a mission to save Lauren and to show her the love and devotion he has for her.
A suspenseful, easy to read book.
