Poor in health but rich in faith, Gina Merritt, a young, broke, African-American single mother sits in a pew on Ash Wednesday and has a holy vision.  When it fades, her palms are bleeding.  Anthony Priest, the junkie sitting beside her, instinctively touches her when she cries out and Gina flees in shock and pain. 

A prize-winning journalist before drugs destroyed his career, Anthony Priest is flooded with a sense of well-being and knows that he is cured of his addiction.  Without understanding why, Anthony follows Gina home to find some answers.

Claudia Burney's offbeat story, which explores what it might mean to literally share in Christ's suffereing, demonstrates an edginess that both attracts and repels. When Gina appears to receive the stigmata on Ash Wednesday at her Vineyard Church in Ann Arbor, Mich, a circus of sorts ensues.  Durggie Anthony Priest shows up to help, as does Priest's alienated mother, Veronica.  Events catapult toward an unexpected conclusion.

This book is for adults.
