Rumour of Hope : The Challenge of Choosing

By (author) Murphy, Denstone

The memoir of Denstone Murphy is a unique opportunity to read of one man's passage of life through times past, from privileged childhood to an unfulfilled medical career, from an accomplished scholastic and clerical involvement to a disillusionment of vocation, and then from a happy fulfilling marriage to the sadness and dependency on others after the onset of Parkinsons Disease. We are taken on a voyage of extraordinary variation, with happy times as a clerical student in Rome followed by holidays in Europe and an extended work period in Trinidad and the West Indies interspersed with working in Cork and Dublin, all the time questioning various aspects of church life and canon law, culminating in leaving his beloved Dominican Order, with all the complications which this was destined to bring. Flashbacks to simple days of farming and country life with wonderful descriptions of the way things were done long ago make this a volume of life's difficulties and joys, of fulfilment and anticipation, of faith and human endeavour, of love of one's fellowman, and of love itself.
