All three Novellas are deeply rooted in the Catholic religion. It is heavily woven throughout the books. Sometimes that seems to be the main theme. If this is something that would bother you I would not suggest you read the books, however if this is something that you are interested in or it does not bother you to read then enjoy. I was given a copy of this book from bookfun.org (The book Club Network) for my honest opinion.
