Description

The Bishop of Medellin, Colombia, is kidnapped by a notorious drug lord, Escargo The Snail. Neo-journalist Trey Richards, who has gone down there to get a story on a drug runner, ends up as his cellmate. Trey has a few roaming minutes left on his phone, enough for Bishop Julius to call his sister, Mother Mary Michael. But how can she and a small community of poor desert nuns find Obispo Julio in time to save his life, without getting killed themselves? Enter Typhoon Billy, a renegade crop duster who gets roped into flying the sisters, their tent, and their belongings, into cartel country. "What are ya gonna do when we get there, have a bunch of nuns with guns storm the place?" he wants to know. Ann graduated from Northwestern University in 1991. The Sisters of Santa Rosa is her breakout novel. Award-winning filmmaker Patrick Coyle (Into Temptation) Minneapolis, gives The Sisters of Santa Rosa five stars, calling it "a wildly creative, very well-written novel, with ingenious minor characters." So strap yourself in with that frayed seat harness and enjoy. We'll try to get you back in one piece.show more
