One of the most notable novelists of the Romantic era, Amantine Lucile Aurore Dupin, best known by her pen name George Sand, achieved fame for her ‘rustic’ novels, drawing inspiration from her lifelong love of the countryside and sympathy for the poor. The familiar theme of her work was love transcending the obstacles of convention and class, all set against the backdrop of her beloved Berry countryside. She was one of the most popular writers in Europe in her lifetime, being more renowned than both Victor Hugo and Honoré de Balzac in England in the mid-nineteenth century.

Born and raised in suburban New Jersey, Timothy John Mulrennan has known since childhood a deep and abiding faith in his God and his Church that leads him to a career as a priest-and propels him onto the stage of world events that include the Second Vatican Council, the Vietnam War, and the election of the first Supreme Pontiff of the Roman Catholic church of the third millennium. Along the way he encounters some of the most remarkable characters in contemporary fiction: Henry Martin Vennholme, leader of the conservative lay movement called Evangelium Christi, and Mulrennan's bitterest enemy within the church . . . Rachel Seredi, a beautiful artist from Hungary who falls in love with Bishop Mulrennan and gives him the greatest gift a woman ever could...Cardinal Leandro Biagi, a wily and urbane politician who would be at home in the time of the Medicis and Borgias...and Jaime de Guzman, the Archbishop of Manila and longtime friend of Tim Mulrennan's, the one man who speaks in the American's defense during the divided conclave and who pays the ultimate price for his honesty and faith in God.

Wealth-accumulation should not be the answer to lead a meaningful and purposeful life. Mental health crisis is sweeping on a global scale, because the core value of capitalism is incompatible with what human truly needs. People are overly obsessed with self-interest and self-seeking.
