The Novel About Healing
by Jeffrey Vreeland
A rapid paced suspense novel set in a time of civic unrest in the suburbs north of New York city. It follows the lives of people who become entangled in the efforts of a clandestine spiritual community to improve the economic well being of immigrant latino laborers.
This novel explores the human shadow side - the ease with which we assign negative traits to the "other" to justify escalating levels of redemptive violence.
