What readers say about the book🧐

This book will surely resonate with anyone over 60 who has tried internet dating--the experiences of the author will leave you sometimes laughing out loud and other times squirm with embarrassment at some truly awful face to face meetings. But beyond these vignettes the author skillfully weaves a story that is part Philip Roth and part Dan Brown--in which the narrator as a distinguished academic historian is caught up in an attempt by the Catholic hierarchy.to suppress his calling out of the church for its resistance to the full inclusion of women's voices and roles in the church. The ensuing story is, by turns, humorous, but also moving and alway engaging. While the story sometimes strains credibility the author ensures that it is well rooted in his erudite knowledge of medieval, religious history. The book tells some extraordinary tales which will take the reader on an enlightening, historically challenging, as well as an erotically charged, journey, It was money well spent and a real page turner.
