Stolen Blessing is a wonderfully written mystery and the third story of the excellent Father Tom series. The characters will draw you in and keep you hooked throughout this deeply moving story and make you stop to think about life. Father Tom us an amazing character, and I hope we get books featuring him for years to come.
The story is about Erick and Addie Comghan have a good life in Boston. When the baby they have longed for is born, the unimaginable happens – Elizabeth goes mussing the day after her baptism at St. Francis Parish. Father Tom and Angelo are pulled in to help solve the mystery of her disappearance in a race against time and the complicated dynamics of the relationships involved. This is a story that offers suspense, intrigue, and a journey of love, redemption, and forgiveness. His story gives us rich layers of humanness, moral failings, grace, and a few subtle messages that are there for us – if we are paying attention.
