The Lion’s Heart


We are giving The Lion's Heart by Dena Hunt out edgiest rating of Off The Edge, and a Catholic rating of Catholic.  This novel deals frankly with same-sex attraction between men in a very intimate, though not a sexual way, and that makes it edgy, at least for Catholics.  The telling of a story about same-sex attraction from a Catholic perspective may put The Lion's Heart into a category of its own.

We would place this story in the Edgy Catholic Redemption Story category.  Clearly, a story like The Lion's Heart deserves a mention on Edgy Catholic.  We give Dena Hunt credit for taking on a very difficult subject.
