The much anticipated second novel featuring Lily James Connor, an Episcopalian priest whose passion for the truth forces her to confront evil-even when it dwells within her own church.

"A wonderful debut: amazing, graceful, satisfying."-San Francisco Chronicle review of The Tentmaker

The Tentmaker made an exciting debut on the mystery scene-one that promised "many good things to come," said the Cleveland Plain Dealer.

Now Earth Has No Sorrow finds Lily Connor, tall and skinny, an unusual figure in her jeans, hand-tooled cowboy boots, and clerical collar, still in Boston, running her Women's Center downtown, and serving on an ecumenical council whose purpose is to study anti-Semitism in the Church. But when one of the council-sponsored events is disrupted by a sophisticated, vitriolic hate crime and a dear friend disappears, Lily is thrown into the middle of a dangerous game that will not only test her faith, but will put everything-and everyone-she knows and loves in jeopardy.

In The Tentmaker, Michelle Blake gave us an unforgettable character-in Earth Has No Sorrow, she's done that and much more, combining a fast-moving plot and a fresh setting with an uncommonly rich depth of feeling.
