Grace And Truth book.

Grace And Truth book. At a wide-spaced 250 pages this does feel more like a long short story, but for all that it is a rich tale beautifully, beautifully told, grabbing attention from the first.

Grace and Truth is a devastating exploration of the wars fought within families, of crises of conscience and creed. Johnston's depiction of the bishop, however, simultaneously fragile and ferocious, is masterful. Sally's quest for truth is set against the backdrop of a ceaseless and endlessly televised war. Though the war lends the novel an undeniable urgency and contemporaneity, Sally and Charlie's squabble seems unintentionally absurd when contrasted against so much death. Johnston's depiction of the bishop, however, simultaneously fragile and ferocious, is masterful

Sally, an actress, has just returned from a long European tour to her house in Goatstown, and looks forward eagerly to seeing her husband, Charlie, again.
