Secret of the Shroud by Pamela Binnings Ewen

Wesley Bright is a bitter man bent on destroying the church and the people that he feels let him down as a young boy. Seeing his brother thrown off of a roof by young thugs, being disappointed at the judge that didn't give them enough punishment and not getting satisfactory answers from the young priest that saw the whole thing sets Wesley on a course of destruction.

Wesley becomes the archdiocese of the Apostolic Church and is bent on changing the false ideals of Christianity. When the Shroud of Turin comes to New York Wesley sees it as an opportunity to further debunk Christianity.

The story is told from different characters in the book. It was interesting how the author even went back to the crucifixion comparing and interchanging Wesley and Peter(who denied Jesus 3 times).

The Secret of the Shroud was interesting but sometimes I got bogged down in all of the technical stuff.


  1. I'm glad you liked it, Julie. Have patience with the Shroud details because they are what makes it so mystrious--and they're all real! Keep in touch - Dancing On Glass is coming up next summer! Pamela
