The Book of Light

The Book of Light

Lily Connor stares at the photograph of the ancient scroll in front of her, barely believing what she is seeing. If the scroll is what she thinks it is, it can only the Book of Light, a biblical document, thousands of years old, purportedly containing the transcribed words of Jesus. No one has been sure the scroll even exists--it's been hidden away from the eyes of the world all this time. Now it's clear to Lily that there are people who will do anything to keep it that way.

“Michelle Blake’s series about an Episcopal priest…stands out for a couple of reasons—besides the essential one of being written with intelligence and grace…”

The Tentmaker

The Tentmaker

Advance readers called THE TENTMAKER "powerful," "wonderful," "an absolute page-turner," and "a terrific debut." It is all of that and more: a thoroughly original debut mystery, featuring Lily James Connor, an Episcopal priest whose passion for the truth forces her to confront the evil that dwells within her own church.
