Descrizione libro The University of Michigan Press, United States, 2009. Paperback. Condizione libro: New. Language: English . Brand New Book. On August 23, 1907, Sister Janina waved good-bye to her priest, who was headed out for an afternoon of fishing, and retired to her convent cell to take a nap. She was never seen again. The young Felician nun lived in Isadore, Michigan, a tiny town in the state s sparsely populated Leelenau Peninsula. But that didn t stop her case from making national waves. More than 400 people from the area searched for her, but for more than a decade her disappearance remained a mystery. Her fellow nuns listed her as lost in their book of records, and so she remained until an ambitious priest launched a campaign to build a new church at Isadore. That s when her skeleton was found buried in the dirt-floored basement of the old church, causing an uproar that scandalized the small farming town. Mardi Link s previous true-crime novel, When Evil Came to Good Hart , focused on the 1968 murder of a wealthy Detroit-area family in their northern Michigan cabin. It was an instant success, topping area best-seller lists and generating rave reviews nationwide. This time Link turns her journalistic and detective skills to a shocking story that remained buried for years. Isadore s Secret has all the ingredients of a terrific whodunit: a young woman murdered, the Catholic confessional, the Michigan Supreme Court, bishops, doctors, priests, detectives, lumbermen, a spy, and one diminutive Polish housekeeper. Many details of the case have been kept secret even into the present day, more than a century later.until now. The book gives readers a historic and compelling yarn of sin, murder, and confession, and its sometimes macabre and far-fetched nature makes it all the more shocking that it is a true story, a work of nonfiction.
