This novel will appeal to those who are interested in discussions about organized religion, and whether or not someone needs to be part of one in order to talk to God. Catherine wants to have a deeper relationship with God but is temporarily prevented from doing so by her own weaknesses, and what almost seems like a conspiracy against her by those in power. She feels lonely, unloved, and like she is on the outside looking in, wondering if she is a good person. She eventually realizes how to achieve her goal, but not before she is almost spiritually destroyed. This is a story of hope, of how much God loves us, and an exploration of the idea that every single person on earth, whether they are Christian, Muslim, Jewish, etc., can talk to God. And He talks to us, too. Based on the author's true story.
