KIRKUS REVIEW

What befalls young and rebellious Padre Pedro when he is sent to restore the glories of the ruined Mission of Santa Lucia, how the daily problems of his scattered congregation, Spanish, Indian and American, worldly and innocent, affects his life and how the Mission finally conquers his love for a woman. Perhaps a bit plushy in style, but details of a Catholic Mission in Southern California with pictures of the clashes between Spanish tenancy and American ownership. For Catholic audiences and historical novel readers.
