Reader recommendation: The Priest's Madonna Save for later Saved Monitor readers share their favorite book picks. By Sonia Kovach, Chicago May 23, 2011 Save for later Saved About video ads View Caption of The Priest's Madonna by Amy Hassinger is along the lines of "The Da Vinci Code" without the theatrics. It is a story about love, family, greed, spirituality, and politics in the late 1800's in rural France. It makes a great summer read. Recommended: Could you pass a US citizenship test?
