Product Description

The Veil of Veronica, which was originally published in English in 1931, is a magnificent novel as well as a passionate statement of faith. Veronica is a young, motherless German girl living in the heart of the Eternal City with her wealthy grandmother and religious aunt. Veronica is caught between the pagan and Christian cultures, divided between life's enthusiasm and the call of grace. Von Le Fort gives a vision of the interaction of nature and grace in her portrayal of Veronica's coming-of-age and conversion journey that is monumental in strength, emotional integrity, and profound poignancy. Lyrical and deeply moving, The Veil of Veronica is a stunning debut work: its spirit prodigious; its appeal undeniable; and its characters unforgettable.

Grace is not force but freedom. Man is forced into life and he is forced into death, and at almost all points between these two, he is in bondage to this or to that. Only to God alone, is no one forced, here God has given the human soul entire freedom.

Paperback, 308 pages.
