Item Description...
A powerful novel of the betrayal of innocent trust and of faith restored set in the shielded culture of conservative protestant homes and colleges of the 1950s and 1960s. This is the tightly woven coming-back-to-faith story of Jack, the son of a prominent protestant church official who as a child is violated by an army officer neighbor. Jack's troubled childhood leads into his destructive teenage years as a runaway into the army during World War II where he meets again with his tormentor. This is also the story of Katherine, with whom Jack acts out his rebellion against God, and of Karis, their child, who matures into young womanhood nurtured by Katherine's love and shielded from her secret. On an isolated college campus, where Jack is Academic Dean, Karis struggles with a life-determinant decision and with the temptation of a forbidden love. It is here the three meet, unaware of their relationship, in a dramatic finale that brings Jack back to the faith of his childhood.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
A Tantalizing Look Into Hidden Passions Within A Parochial Community  Jan 28, 2007
Ten Miles From The Nearest Sin spans several decades and follows a number of intertwined lives of those who follow the path of a specific religion. Among the topics skillfully interwoven in its storyline are love, faith, hope, sexuality, violence, parenting, and predation. The final consequences for the characters might be considered the judgment and mercy of god or may simply be the self-induced karma of the individual's guilt and/or faith.

For readers who live outside of this religious paradigm - consisting of churches, hospitals and schools - this book provides a fascinating glimpse into its insular, protective-of-the-outside-world, nature and the subsequent challenges posed. For those are already part of this denomination - and you will recognize the one it is based upon, although it could be a number of Christian organizations - it provides a titillating glimpse of the effects of faith-based living, repression, hope, desire, anger and gender discrimination.
