Abstract:

"No matter how they tell it, wax and plaster saints have nothing on flesh and blood. Just ask Sao Esperitu, a young woman with the clean eyes and the healing power. Sometimes a miracle looks like a bloody dog in the driveway, needing to be healed. Other times it's a Native American ex-con on a Harley, needing to be saved. Bo Notices has spent his life running from responsibility until he gets religion and a saint for a wife. But San and Bo's new stake in happiness doesn't come unchallenged."

"Or ask any of the StandsStraight women, the daughters of Jack and Oklahoma: Carolina, Georgia, Indiana, Tennessee Jane. Sainthood may be a matter of leading a traveling evangelical church. Or it may just be a matter of living through the sufferings of motherhood and sisterhood. Of lost children recovered, others forever lost." "Better still, ask Lena Allen Mays as she wanders afar from her Kentucky home, accompanied only by her dog Cumberland, coming to grips with the truth about her heritage and coming close to disrupting the happiness of the very people who have taken her in and given her a new chance in life."

"Victims and healers, saints and sinners. They all come together in these pages through interlinked tales of intertwined lives, voices interwoven in time and space. The Marriage of Saints is an original novel that conveys simple truths about faith, family, and finding out who saints truly are."--Jacket.
