Описание

A nun struggles to keep her order afloat while her imprisoned brother fights for survival in this “elegiac tale of tragedy and redemption” (Booklist).
  At first glance, the siblings at the heart of Bread for the Baker’s Child couldn’t seem more different. Rachel is a devoted nun, while Phillip is a faithless accountant in prison for embezzlement. It soon becomes apparent that the two share a painful past, and though separately confined, their spirits and struggles intersect dramatically. Rachel attempts to both run her order and tend to a beloved Mother General on the brink of death. Meanwhile, Phillip comes to the aid of a vulnerable inmate, precipitating a romantic bond that could prove fatal. Intricately structured and psychologically acute, this is a gripping novel exploring the balance between good and evil.
