This is a challenging December for Martin Halsey, a New York talent agent. Catholic faith was a key source of insight for Martin as a young man. But when puzzlement overtook insight, he chose atheism and gave his full commitment to his true passions -- his work and family. An acute tragedy, however, has caused Martin to reconsider his choice. In "The Holy Family," Thanksgiving proceeds to Christmas as Martin revisits his evolution from belief to unbelief against the backdrop of his early faith, his marriage, career, and family, and a controversial painting of the Holy Family by his daughter Celia. In the face of deep loss, Martin struggles with the question: Do I renew my faith and accept its promises, or stand firm with the sensual, finite love of a world without God? Engaging and timely, "The Holy Family" ventures into contentious waters but transcends the shouting and welcomes the search. "'The Holy Family' is a rich and engrossing story, elegant and moving. Though it takes place on the epic stage of religious belief and disbelief, the drama itself is simple, humane, and ultimately devastating as the title's twin meanings gradually come into focus. A unique and deeply satisfying read." -Dale McGowan, author, "Parenting Beyond Belief"
