Maggie is entirely devoted to her husband Thomas, their two beautiful children, and to God.
But then what begins as innocent letter writing with poet James starts to become something far more erotically charged, their meeting of minds threatening to become a meeting of bodies.
As everything Maggie believes in is thrown into doubt the reader is drawn ever deeper into the battleground of her soul.
Fire Sermon by Jamie Quatro is a daring debut novel of obsession, desire and salvation that shows the radical light and dark of love itself. This is a visceral, rich and devastating portrait of loves lived and lost that cannot fail to echo in your own experience.
A poem by R. S. Thomas, chosen by author of Fire Sermon, Jamie Quatro.
