Reader recommendation: The Priest's Madonna Monitor readers share their favorite book picks. By Sonia Kovach, Chicago May 23, 2011 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?
