Altar Music: A Novel - used book

ISBN: 0684868652

ID: 2279237

Christin Lore Weber's first novel explores three generations of devoutly Catholic women. Living in rural northern Minnesota in the first half of the 20th century, these sisters, daughters, and grandmothers struggle with their relationships with God, their feverishly repressed passions, their erotic memories and longings. Altar Music boasts some great sex scenes, worthy of The Best American Erotica. The only problem is that afterward the women are so repentant they shut down. Young mother Kate Pearson becomes "like porcelain under his fingers" before her husband goes to fight in World War II. "She felt how he had touched her just last night and how her flesh fought against her mind for release." Her daughter, Elise, after playing doctor with her friend Margaret, prays "Please, holy Mary, don't let God send me to hell. Please come and tell me God's not mad at me." The expression and repression of natural sexual drives is what moves this book along. Its title refers to the piano lessons Elise takes from a once-famous concert pianist who gave it all up to marry God. (It's worth mentioning at this point that Weber entered a convent after high school and was a nun for 14 years.) Each chapter is preceded by a lesson from Sister Mary's notebooks: "Repetition is never exact. Develop nuance, subtle shading--Soul." The discipline of the piano becomes a metaphor for the attempt to tame the music of the body--to make it something pretty and recognizable, not f christian books and bibles,contemporary,family saga,fiction,genre fiction,literary,literature and fiction,mystery thriller and suspense,psychological thrillers,religion and spirituality Thrillers, Scribner

Weber, Christin Lore:

Altar Music - new book

ISBN: 9780684868653

ID: 152529

Sheri Reynolds author of The Rapture of Canaan Altar Music is more than a love story, more than a family saga, more than a portrait of convent life or a spiritual journey. It is beautiful and sweeping, textured with the heat of wool and blood, the softness of a spider's web in wind, sounds of Christmas ornaments breaking, a single note ringing from a convent piano. Christin Lore Weber's novel reads like a song. It will sing you awake. Fiction Fiction eBook, Scribner
