About this title

Synopsis:

 

“Murdoch's finest novel . . . Surely one of the major achievements in fiction in recent years.” â Joyce Carol Oates   When old friends Henry and Cato reunite after years apart, they quickly become embroiled in the drama of each other’s lives. Henry, who has just returned to England as the sole heir to his recently deceased brother’s estate, quickly begins to uncover secrets buried long ago. Meanwhile, Cato, a Catholic priest, has fallen in love with the criminal Beautiful Joe, and struggles to reform him despite the thief’s continual efforts to rob him.   A stirring portrait of morality and redemption, Henry and Cato is an insightful look at coping with the crises that come with life’s unexpected changes.

 

From the Inside Flap:

This is the story of two prodigal sons. Henry returns from a self-imposed exile in America to an unforeseen inheritance of wealth and land in England and to his mother. His friend Cato is struggling with two passions, one for a God who may or may not exist, the other for a petty criminal who may or may not be capable of salvation. Cato's father and sister Colette wait anxiously to welcome Cato back to sanity.
