PISTACO - New Novel by Lynn Monahan

Lynn Monahan, editor-in-chief of the Maryknoll Magazine, has written a new, already acclaimed novel.  In many ways, Pistaco was inspired by Lynn's experience as a Maryknoll Lay Missioner in Peru.  Here's what others are saying about Pistaco:

“Pistaco is a compelling story of love, war, faith, and superstition in the remote Peruvian highlands during the rise of a Maoist guerrilla movement in the 1980s. Father Steven McMahon, an American priest recently arrived in Peru, meets Cori, a young woman who has come from Lima to teach in an indigenous village. Repeated encounters with violence and threats from both government troops and rebel forces throw the unlikely couple

together, and their passionate story unfolds with all the intrigue, suspense, and moral complexity of a Graham Greene novel. Pistaco is a riveting masterpiece by a first-time novelist.”

—Michael Leach, former publisher of Orbis Books and the Crossroad Publishing Company, a columnist for the National Catholic Reporter, and author of many award-winning books on Catholicism

 

“Reminiscent of the finest Graham Greene novels, this beautifully written and compelling story thrusts us into an indigenous Andes culture and ultimately into the heart of faith, which is to find God in our human imperfections and the mysteries of daily life.”

—Judith Valente, author of Atchison Blue: A Search for Silence, A Spiritual Home and a Living Faith and The Art of Pausing: Meditations for the Overworked and Overwhelmed
