Visible Signs (Paperback)
In the aftermath of the turbulent 60s, unable to reconcile her monastic existence in upstate New York with the plight of the community's poor, Sister Jude leaves the convent only to become ensnared in her best friend's crumbling marriage. Intimidated by her talented but overbearing husband, Vincent, a pregnant Connie shows up at Jude's door with her two children in tow.
Jude's mission to feed the hungry and free Connie from her weakness for Vincent is complicated by her own attraction to Matt, a passionate but burned-out activist, back from the inner city to work his family's farm.
Tormented by Vincent's treachery and Matt's ultimatum, Jude learns how little she understands the vagaries of the heart. And that her fierce faith and determination may not be enough to save Connie from her husband, the children from danger or herself from a fall from grace.
