Sex and Sanctimony in the '60's!!

What goes on behind the closed doors of a monastery?

Anguish and intrigue behind the cold stone walls of Saint Therese's monastery lead to a man's quest for truth among the Creole elite of New Orleans.

Robin Christopher, a flawed young lawyer who spends too much time stoking his already swollen libido, finally falls in love, but the woman of his affections, Ariadne Alençon, leaves him to join an order of nuns.

Stunned, Robin sets out to reclaim her from the Church, and becomes enmeshed in the affairs of her aristocratic family. The truth about what happened at Saint Therese's and the corruption behind it are revealed in the final climactic courtroom scene.

About the Author:

Born in Danville, Kentucky, on January 31, 1949, Alan Thompson grew up in his beloved Chapel Hill, North Carolina. A 1966 graduate of Chapel Hill High School, he received his B.A. from the University of Kentucky in 1970, and his J.D. from the same institution in 1973. He has practiced law for the past forty years, primarily in Atlanta, Georgia, and now resides in Georgetown, South Carolina. Alan's civil trial work extended to dozens of jurisdictions throughout the United States, Australia and England, and he contributed to several professional journals and treatises dealing with his particular area of expertise, construction law. He began writing fiction seriously in 2008, and his first novel, A Hollow Cup, was published in 2011. The Black Owls was released in 2013, followed by The Kingfishers, Gods and Lesser Men and Lucifer’s Promise. He and his wife Barbie have two sons, one a lawyer in Salt Lake City, the other a Navy helicopter pilot currently stationed in San Diego, California.

Review:

"A young New Orleans lawyer endures death and unrequited love in Thompson's atmospheric legal and religious thriller."--Kirkus Reviews

"[T]his complex novel adopts changing perspectives and narrators to impart its story; and while that device could have proved confusing in lesser hands, Alan Thompson's approach succeeds in creating a winning saga . . . It's difficult to capture all the nuances of the story without revealing too many of its twists and turns: suffice it to say that The Nun's Dowry . . . is recommended for readers who like their stories well detailed, winding, and filled with food for thought." - D. Donovan, Senior Reviewer, Midwest Book Review
