Bernard Leo Remakus- The Paraclete

Genre: Psychological Thriller

5 Stars


What a chilling story in The Paraclete by Bernard Leo Remakus. I wasn't sure what the meaning of the word, Paraclete meant, so I looked it up. It means, "the Holy Spirit as advocate or counselor." And once I knew what that meant, as I am not familiar with all the ins and outs of the Catholic church, only by reputation, I sat back and read this chilling story. This story tells about the Catholic church, their running, and the ranks within the church. Then, as many are reminded of the history weaved in their reputation with priest turned pedophiles, the story came to life, as lives were destroyed. Though, it's based on real events, or the real reputation of the church, the story itself, brings a lot of depth, emotion, and truthfulness to the heartache and betrayal of these young children. What a remarkably well-written, story that brings out such emotions and captures the defiling of the young, who are desperate to be believed, and for their abuse to be stopped. This author brings the story to life. The characters had a lot of depth and were very realistic. This book deserves a second read! (and maybe more). It is a very touchy and maybe a story that is wished by some to be unwritten, but you can't unwrite this, and I applaud the author for writing this awe-inspiring story. I have fast become a big fan of Remakus. Wow! Simply masterful. Masterfully written! This author not only tells the story but shows it with words as well. The Paraclete is a definite recommendation by Amy's Bookshelf Reviews. I read this book to give my unbiased and honest review. Amy's Bookshelf Reviews recommends that anyone who reads this book, to also write a review.
