New York Times Bestseller: At a crossroads in their lives, twelve troubled souls seek guidance and comfort from a mysterious stranger. Many years have passed since the Sanctuary was built as a refuge for the lost. It is just two marble rooms: one for those waiting to be heard and one for the Man Who Listens. Drawn to it are the grieving, the despairing, the cynical, the defeated, the dying, the betrayed, and the broken. They know that the Man Who Listens accepts every blasphemy, every pitiful excuse, and every intimate tale of degradation with silent understanding. Now, twelve new souls are about to seek help for their unimaginable anguish . . . Among them, a mother forsaking her faith in the wake of her child's leukemia; a suicidal working man who has lost his business and his family; a beleaguered African American who has reached his breaking point; an artist going blind and mad; a little boy who has never known happiness; and a disbelieving cop who furiously seeks out the Sanctuary for one purpose: to expose the Man Who Listens as a fraud. Their desperate struggles have brought them to the Sanctuary for resolution, absolution, and the answers to life's great mysteries. In this uplifting sequel to her bestselling novel The Listener, author Taylor Caldwell illuminates the spiritual crises of our time and brings into simple yet triumphant focus the transformative power of faith and forgiveness. This ebook features an illustrated biography of Taylor Caldwell including rare images from the author's estate.
