Three eccentric, secluded nuns live on a remote island, forgotten by time and the Church—until a priest unwittingly happens upon them. Father Ignatius is as surprised to see the nuns as they are to see a flesh-and-blood man, and what follows is the strange, moving, and often hilarious story of their struggle—a struggle of wills, and of faith. Lambs of God is a charming, poignant page-turner from crime novelist Marele Day.
