The acclaimed author of "The Cloud Atlas" returns with a wondrous second novel. Set in a small beachfront Catholic high school, narrated by a beautifully complex heroine, "All Saints" is at once a mystery, a love story, and a powerful rumination on secrets, temptation, and faith.
From the Publisher:
Recently single, Emily Hamilton, an iconoclastic fifty-year-old theology teacher at All Saints Co-Ed Catholic High School, spends her days teaching her students about some of the church's long-forgotten saints and martyrs, until a student's unusual version of a class assignment brings Emily face to face with temptations past and present. By the author of The Cloud Atlas. Reprint. 25,000 first printing.The acclaimed author of The Cloud Atlas returns with a wondrous second novel. Set in a small beachfront Catholic high school, narrated by a beautifully complex heroine–theology teacher Emily Hamilton–All Saints is at once a mystery, a love story, and a powerful rumination on secrets, temptation, and faith.

By life’s midpoint Emily has seen three husbands, dozens of friends, and hundreds of students come and go. And now her classroom, long her refuge, is proving to be
anything but.

Though her popular, occasionally irreverent church history course is rich with stories of long-dead saints, Emily uneasily discovers that it’s her own tumultuous life that fascinates certain students most. She in turn finds herself drawn into their world, their secrets, and the fateful choices they make.

A novel of mystery and illumination, calling and choice, All Saints explores lives lived in a fragile sanctuary–from Emily and her many saints to a priest facing his own mortality and a teenager tormented by desire. Told with grace and compassion, this is a spellbinding novel of provocative storytelling.
