More Catholic Reads: Passport by C. Blunt


I wanted to let you all know about a new Catholic novel I've had the chance to read, Passport by Christopher Blunt. It's a great read whose message doesn't obsucre the page-turning romance, a story that will have a special resonance with Catholic men, especially dads.

A choice between the woman he loves and the woman and child who need him.

On the first page of the book, Stan Eigenbauer, vintage car specialist and comfortable Catholic, meets the girl of his dreams -- or so he hopes. Trinh Le is a gifted photographer, an immigrant from Vietnam, luminous and fragile -- and already married and separated from her sinister husband. The tangling of their lives and a fateful choice one night throws Stan into a heart-wrenching moral dilemma with tragic consequences. But Stan decides to make a heroic choice and shoulder a burden most men would want to leave behind.

Stan's saga is one my husband and I thoroughly enjoyed, and we're happy to recommend this book to you. Passport is better written and plotted than your average self-published novel, and better reading than typical amateur Catholic fiction. For those of you on the lookout for emerging Catholic genre fiction, you will want to check out this book.

To find out more about Passport, go to
Order from the website, B&N, or Amazon, or ask your local Catholic bookstore to order it.

Check out the novel if you have a moment, and if you read it and like it, consider reviewing it or having it reviewed in your blog or other publication. Thanks!
