Description
Information
A powerfully involving new novel from one of America's finest writers.

Over the years, Father Damian has seen the reservation through its most severe crises, yet he is more than an heroic priest. He has lived and serviced the Ojibwa people as a man of the cloth, and also as a woman. Now, nearing the end of his life, he dreads discovery.

His quietly devout life changes when a troubled colleague comes to the reservation scrutinising the life of his lifelong nemesis, Sister Leopolds, considering her for sainthood. Father Damian knows the strange truth of her existence. When he is called upon to prove or disprove her sainthood, he faces the greatest challenge of his life.

Where does fact end and reality begin? And how does one tell it? As he searches for the answer he must wrestle with demons from his past, memories that haunt him-and the secret of his own identity in his revelatory last report to the Pope.

Moving and lyrical, 'The Last Report On The Miracles' is a powerful new work from one of contemporary literature's brightest stars.
