From former priest and National Book Award–winning writer James Carroll, The Truth at the Heart of the Lie is an eloquent memoir tracing the roots of the Catholic sexual abuse scandal back to the power structure of the Church itself, as he explores his own crisis of faith and journey to renewal.

Part memoir, part journalistic investigation, in Uprooted Grace Olmstead wrestles with the questions of what we owe the places we come from and what we are willing to sacrifice for profit and progress.
