"New editions of acclaimed Catholic novels."
Agatha Magee, the feisty, quick-witted, fiercely Catholic doyenne of Staggerford, Minnesota, confronts crises large and small in her 70th year. She is forced to retire from her beloved teaching, she’s crushed to learn that her Irish pen pal James is a priest, and she’s faced with the evils of the world — from Irish terrorism to the petty jealousies that tear apart life in a small town. Jon Hassler explores themes of loss and spiritual renewal in this engaging novel.
