Award-winning author Patrick Hannon offers his new, stunning second book — The Geography of God's Mercy — a collection of personal stories that delve into the deeper meaning and importance of forgiveness.
Hannon's The Geography of God's Mercy secures his growing reputation as one of the finest storytellers of our time. Whether it is a young bowler who is dying in "That's the Deal" or an Irish kid who covets and American visitor's high school baseball cap, the characters in Hannon's prose come alive in ways that are touching, insightful, and full of grace.
Hannon uses the topography to illuminate and organize his stories — the forest, the sea, the desert, the mountains, the rivers, the plains and the valleys. Each story portrays real people in need of compassion or forgiveness. The subjects of his stories always find what they're looking for eventually, as the mercy of God reveals itself...often in unexpected ways.
