New York Times Bestseller: A priest struggles against the Vietnam War—and his own passions—in "a classic page-turner" (Chicago Tribune). Vietnam was bitterly contested not only on the battlefields of Southeast Asia but on the American home front. This novel filled with "probing psychological detail" follows Michael Maguire—a Catholic priest, Korean War hero, and former POW—who risks everything as he fights to be true to his heart and his conscience during the tumult of the era (The Washington Post). From the author of The Cloister, Prince of Peace is a thrilling saga of faith, truth, and honor, "so rich and vital it leaves you breathless" (Chicago Tribune).
