The Ninth Hour
Farrar, Straus and Giroux
The National Book Award winner delivers another exquisite novel in which
those who at first appear unremarkable—in this case, nuns in
early-20th-century Brooklyn—are revealed as heroines, unflinching in
their devotion to the flawed humans around them.
— Jordan Sebastian Bonner, Leigh Haber, Taylor Lannamann
