Fatima, Portogallo, 1917. Tre piccoli pastori raccontano di aver visto una donna vestita di bianco scendere da una nube. «Non abbiate timore, non voglio farvi del male», li ha rassicurati, ma ha consegna loro anche un messaggio inquietante: due vergini daranno contemporaneamente alla luce due bambini; il primo sarà il Salvatore, l’altro…
Vaticano, giorni nostri. Mentre l’intero pianeta è devastato da epidemie, carestie e siccità, a Roma giunge una notizia singolare: due adolescenti che stanno per partorire si dichiarano entrambe vergini. La prima a Boston, l’altra in un villaggio irlandese. Memore della Profezia di Fatima il papa affida a padre Nicholas Rosetti, la massima autorità in materia di miracoli, il compito di indagare sulla misteriosa vicenda, e, in punto di morte, gli rivela un inconfessabile segreto.
Per partecipare alle indagini, l’arcidiocesi di Boston decide di affiancare al religioso Anne Fitzgerald, una ex suora che lavora come investigatrice privata. In uno scenario apocalittico, gravato dallo scatenarsi di paure incontrollate, i due si lanciano in una corsa contro il tempo per scoprire la verità, ma Anne e padre Rosetti ancora non sanno quali demoni si troveranno ad affrontare…

I finished reading this a few days ago but I completely forgot to update it on here... see what prac is doing to me 😂 Alright so I really did enjoy this book. It had some plot twists that I was not expecting to see. One things I didn’t like was the switching character point of views and there was no Leggi tutto
The Catholic church tries to figure out which pregnant virgin teen is the Mother of Christ and which is the Mother of Satan. Needless to say, they get it wrong, although what with all the snakes attacking Mexico and demonic priests riding motorcycles you can understand how they got baffled. Written
This is the first non-Alex Cross book of Patterson's that I've read. While the story is good, the writing is poor -- not up to the standard I'd expect from Patterson. I suspect this is an early novel that Patterson dusted off and marketed after he got hot. The secret of the miraculous revelations
Love, love love this book. Does anyone know if there will be a second book with the way it ended?
This book.. is so much more than a book to me. This book is a beautiful, yet bittersweet memory for me. I remember reading this book when I was about 12-years-old. I had spent the weekend with Nana (my mom's mother). She had taken me to the library that Friday to get me a stack of Sweet Valley High
This book is just terrible. A story about two virgins about to give birth, we find out one will be to the Saviour and one will be to the Beast. But which one? Well, lets see, one of the girls is a rich, white, blonde, debutante, from America and getting loads of press. The other a poor girl in a poo Leggi tutto
I read this book years ago when it was first published, so I was intrigued to see how it was reworked to be YA. I only had a vague memory of what happened, but I knew I liked the story. And it was still just as interesting. I really enjoyed that Anne's portion of the story was the main POV. I loved
James Patterson is skilled at making the reader keep turning the page, primarily by withholding infuriating details and writing chapters that are no longer than 3 pages. This book was definitely a page-turner, but ultimately I did not enjoy it. Most, if not all, of the characters were underdeveloped Leggi tutto
Cradle and All is the first book I’ve read by James Patterson and this may be brutal, but I wasn’t impressed. So originally this book was published in the early 80s but I stumbled upon a new edition in the teen section the other day when I was at the bookstore. Yes you heard me, THE TEEN SECTION. Ye Leggi tutto
This is the first book I read by James Patterson, but I don't think that was the right choice to begin with, it was ok but I was disappointed, from the synopsis I thought it would be more suspense I was waiting for things to get exciting and things to start happening but as the pages goes and as I'm Leggi tutto
