About this title


How far will the Church go to keep women from the priesthood ? Magda Heffernan: a nun personifiying the kindness and decency Christ surely intended. Though a trained and competenttheologian, and certain she has been called to be a priest, Magda has for 30 years, until now, patiently accepted the secondary roles doled out by men seldom her intellectual or moral equal. Murphy Marlowe: an attorney who, though established and competent, still has to prove herself to her involved in a soul numbing practice, far from the 'pursuit of justice' that had drawn her to law in the first place. Magda and Murphy, old friends, rediscover each other. Magda refocuses Murphy and together they launch a sex discrimination suit against the Church. Magda, they vow, will have her rightful ordination. The process revives the relationship, breathes life into Magda's dream and lightens Murphy's soul. As the case goes to trial, Magda disappears. Cold feet? Foul Play? The hand of God? The ire of the Cardinal?
