Tales From The TBR Pile: Madman

11 Feb

My book club read Tracy Groot‘s novel, Flame of Resistance, for our January discussion. A great book, it generated interesting conversation. Another of her novels is on my shelf: Madman. I have been eyeing this one for a while, but not sure when it will reach the top of the TBR Pile. Here is some info. on that book. Have you read it? Leave me your comments.

I63627_w185f there is a way into madness, logic says there is a way out. Logic says. Tallis, a philosopher’s servant, is sent to a Greek academy in Palestine only to discover that it has silently, ominously, disappeared. No one will tell him what happened, but he learns what has become of four of its scholars. One was murdered. One committed suicide. One worships in the temple of Dionysus. And one … one is a madman. From the author of The Brother’s Keeper comes a tale of mystery, horror, and hope in the midst of unimaginable darkness, the story behind the Geresene demoniac of the gospels of Mark and Luke.

Her most recent books exemplify her unique style of storytelling—reimagining biblical stories within other historical contexts. Tracy’s novels have received starred Booklist and Publishers Weekly reviews and have been called “beautifully written” and “page-turning” by Publishers Weekly and “gripping” with “exquisitely drawn” characters by Library Journal. Tracy and her husband have three boys and together run a coffee shop in Holland, Michigan.
