Death Comes For The Archbishop, Paperback / softback Book

Death Comes For The Archbishop Paperback / softback

Part of the Virago Modern Classics series

Paperback / softback

Description

In 1851 Bishop Latour and his friend Father Valliant are despatched to New Mexico to reawaken its slumbering Catholicism.

Moving along the endless prairies, Latour spreads his faith the only way he knows - gently, although he must contend with the unforgiving landscape, derelict and sometimes openly rebellious priests, and his own loneliness.

Over nearly forty years, they leave converts and enemies, crosses and occasionally ecstasy in their wake.

But it takes a death for them to make their mark on the landscape forever . . .
