Office of Innocence by Thomas Keneally
In Office of Innocence, Thomas Keneally (author of Schindler's List) tells the story of a Frank Darragh, an Australian priest full of enthusiasm and virtue and the favorite confessor of his parish. Even though Australia is on the fringes of World War II, the behavior of some of his parishioners and the confessions he hears from soldiers begin to shock him. When some are unapologetic for their sins, it engenders a spiritual crisis for the priest. He becomes infatuated with a beautiful young woman whose husband is a German prisoner of war and when she's found murdered, his relationship with her makes him guilty by association. This is a novel where virtue meets reality and the young priest is forced to confront his own faith and vocation and grow as a man. BookPage.com calls Office of Innocence "a wonderful book that speaks to any time, to all who seek the truth."
