When Brother Sebastian, nee Michael Lamb, runs away from a bleak reformatory, taking with him a 12-year-old boy, the media and the police call it a kidnapping. For Lamb, it is a rescue of a formerly abused boy from a place of no hope. But as the outside world closes in, Lamb finds himself moving toward a solution that is as shocking as it is loving. Now back in print, this masterful and moving first novel was an acclaimed motion picture starring Liam Neeson in the title role.

User Review  - Rachel - Goodreads

This was a short, disturbing, but engrossing book. The ending felt inevitable, but not annoyingly predictable, which is a fine line to walk. Not happy and uplifting, but interesting. Read full review
