My melancholic temperament longs for meaningful, purpose-filled reading. But sometime I wonder if my tendency toward deep, spiritual works encourages too great a seriousness in my life...
Any recommendations for "fun" and "easy" reads with Catholic undertones or subject matters? I've greatly enjoyed "Father Elijah" by Michael D. O'Brien and want to find another book I won't want to put down! Suggestions?
If you like historic fiction, you can try Janette Oke's series, in particular the Acts of Faith series that starts with The Centurion's Wife. I thoroughly enjoyed reading about the birth of the church. All of her books read well, but these focused on the apostle's work. Stephen's martyrdom was discussed in the first or second book.
I am a voracious reader and sometimes I'll walk up and down the aisles and start grabbing christian titles.
