Established boundaries are dangerously threatened in this engrossing story of the tender love that unexpectedly springs up between a young New York woman and a Catholic priest. Beatrice's career aspirations and the pair's wrenching emotional struggles highlight deeper institutional problems within the Roman Catholic Church in the 1980s, which, curiously, continue right up to the present day and cry out for a hearing. BEATRICE AFLAME is a highly entertaining, suspenseful, and thought-provoking novel. KIMBERLY LABOR is the author of I DREAM OF YOU STILL: EARLY YEARS IN BATH, a memoir. She holds a bachelor's degree in history from the University of California at Los Angeles, and a master's degree in English from Teachers College, Columbia University in the City of New York. BEATRICE AFLAME is her first published novel.
