Next Book Club Book for August: The Quiet Light by Louis De Wohl

Voting for the next book for the Young Adult Book Club has completed!  We'll be reading The Quiet Light by Louis De Wohl and meeting in the middle of August for discussion.  I've read it and it is quite good.

Here's a synopsis:
"A stimulating historical novel about the great St. Thomas Aquinas, set against the violent background of the Italy of the Crusades. He tells the intriguing story of St. Thomas who - by taking a vow of poverty and joining the Dominicans - defied his illustrious, prominent family's ambition for him to have great power in the Church."

Here it is at Amazon.

I am going to be ordering some copies and handing them out (in exchange for $12.21) at the discussion of Pierced by a Sword on June 17th.  If you'd like a copy please let me know via the comments.  If you cannot afford the full price of the book right now, just let me know and the Young Adults can help out.
