A Gemma Open Door book
For two years, Brother Pete has lived as a monk in a rundown abbey on the outskirts of the city. He has run away from his life only to find himself among a group of outcasts and oddballs, from a former child star who’s seen better days, to an old abbot who makes no secret of his love for drink and his hatred for almost everything else.
It’s not exactly what Pete had in mind.
Then one day a stranger arrives and throws everything off balance.
Soon, it seems, Brother Pete will need to face his own past if he wants to find out whether this mysterious visitor is a danger―or a savior.
