KIRKUS REVIEW

First rate adventure with real life heroes in stories about chaplains in all walks of life. Among them are priests such as Father Gervase Brinkman, OFM, Chaplain of Stateville Father Thomas McDonough, Chaplain of the Port of New Orleans, affectionately known as ""paire of the wharves""; Father Edward Sullivan, beloved by circus performers throughout the United States; Father Thomas Quinlivan, Padre-Chaplain to migrant Mexican workers in Texas. War heroes are not forgotten and there is real suspense as Father Francis Sampson makes his first parachute jump, as Father Charles Suver says Mass for the Marines as Father Emil Kaprum gives up his life to help other prisoners in a North Korean prison camp. Well-written, exciting.
