TORTURE IS THE DIRECT SEQUEL TO URSULA (2021).
“I wish that every theocrat could take a hard look at it and learn something.”–Rick Labus
“We must not become our enemies.”
Sometimes even strong faith is tested by events. Does a god control these events, or is everything left to chance? Enemies still try to kill Mother Ursula, showing that the war for control of the Church and Terra is not yet ended, and a recent death pierces Mother Ursula to the heart. How can Clovia Nervina maintain her faith and her leadership of the Church, when both are threatened by forces larger than herself? The pain of loss threatens Clovia’s belief in Havo as enemies threaten her life, resulting in Clovia Nervina’s greatest crisis.
