Riassunto: When two holy sisters discover a little girl in the woods and take her back to an orphanage, she mysteriously insists that Jesus is her brother. The child's spiritual powers are gradually revealed, and she is adopted by a gambler and his mistress. A harrowing, high-stakes adventure ensues. Are the strange events that surround this child of God true miracles meant to deliver redemption for the people in her life? Or is she simply a precocious child? God's Only Daughter is an entertaining and thought-provoking tale that takes place near the end of WWII. Told alternately through the voice of the little girl and that of one of the nuns who found her, author Damon Galeassi delivers a unique and moving story of salvation and love. Author Bio: Damon Galeassi grew up in small town outside of Valley Forge, Pennsylvania. He now resides in an eco-village called "The Quarries" in Virginia, situated on the top of Walton's Mountain, where the ghost of John-Boy lingers, along with real-life moonshiners. Mr. Galeassi is the author of A Sixties Book aka Spiderwort, a psychedelic, anti-nuclear tale of the construction of Three Mile Island Nuclear Plant. He also has written a collection of short stories, Twelve Tales of Trepidation, available on Amazon Kindle. He is currently developing the sequel to God's Only Daughter.

Review: 0 of 2 people found the following review helpful 5.0 out of 5 stars Delightful March 3, 2012 By WildOatsWildHearts Format:Paperback I very much enjoyed this story. The characters of the Sisters at the convent were reminiscent of my mother's tales of Catholic school, Nuns, and the Nunnery. There is a great mix of narrators, dialogues, and memorable character attributes. I would recommend this book to friends.

A very enjoyable read; a fun story! Mr. Galeassi has presented a story of a relationship between a Divine Father and Daughter (Joy); he has done so in a "real-world" situation which is both engaging and enjoyable. Loved his honest-to-goodness characterization of the nuns of the orphanage, the off-beat characters of Vinny and Celie (shades of "My Cousin Vinnie"!), the believable relationship between Joy and Michael (her Guardian Angel), and the references to Jesus (as Joy's brother).

Finally, a happy ending worth reading!
This is a calm, serene happiness, a feel-good book, as the author promises, with a warm-fuzzy ending. It asks more than the question, "What if God had a daughter?" but also makes one think about faith itself. Some of the characters are stereotypical, but they make for a light read, and they play well off the main characters. This book is both funny and inspirational. Well-written. Bravo!

Tierney rated it
The little girl in the story pulls into her orbit a wonderful mix of characters with an array of motives and backgrounds. I especially loved the imagery of her playing with the bear in the forest, her adventures with the Sciazzos and her astute recognition of the disconnect between her father's intentions and the Earthly service in her father's name.

Karen rated it
I found this book to be charmingly written. I smiled whenever i sat to read it...which doesn't take long, it is a fast and easy read.
Somewhat comical, but has a nice message and I really loved all the main characters.

Descrizione libro Manchester University Press. Hardback. Condizione libro: new. BRAND NEW, God's Only Daughter: Spenser's Una as the Invisible Church, Kathryn Walls, In this study, Kathryn Walls challenges the standard identification of Una with the post-Reformation English Church, arguing that she is, rather, Augustine's City of God - the invisible Church, whose membership is known only to God. Una's story (its Tudor resonances notwithstanding) therefore embraces that of the Synagogue before the Incarnation as well as that of the Church in the time of Christ and thereafter. It also allegorises the redemptive process that sustains the true Church. Una is fallible in canto I. Subsequently, however, she comes to embody divine perfection. Her transformation depends upon the intervention of the lion as Christ. Convinced of the consistency and coherence of Spenser's allegory, Walls offers fresh interpretations of Abessa (as Synagoga), of the fauns and satyrs (the Gentiles), and of Una's dwarf (adiaphoric forms of worship). She also reinterprets Spenser's marriage metaphor, clarifying the significance of Red Cross as Una's spouse in the final canto. Codice libro della libreria B9780719090370
