When the Wood Is Dry: An Edgy Catholic Thriller–Catholic Edition
Special Catholic Edition!
“Sometimes we must suffer if we are to save souls.”
Jesus’ words echo in a recurring dream to Lali Russo, a seventeen-year-old Catholic school girl.
Lali wakes and asks, “Why that dream again?”
Haunted by her ominous dream, Lali prays the rosary at an abortion clinic, as she would on any other day. Glancing up, a distraught, pregnant drug-addict approaches the clinic. Lali counsels the girl against having an abortion and walks her home where she meets the girl’s boyfriend, a notorious gang leader. Ralo glares at her, as sharpens his machete.
“Go away, little girl, this is no’ ju beesness.”
Please note: While we have expurgated objectionable language in this Catholic Edition, When the Wood Is Dry: An Edgy Catholic Thriller remains an edgy story dealing with mature subject matter including unplanned pregnancy and violence. Reader discretion is advised.
