The Unspeakable is a stirring novel about friendship, faith, and forgiveness, and the bond between two men, both priests, struggling to free themselves from the destructive past that haunts them both. Peter Whitmore, an administrator for the Archdiocese of St. Paul, is asked to investigate and ultimately discredit a priest who, it is rumored, possesses a remarkable power - the power to heal. Moreover, the priest in question, Jim Marbury, is not a stranger to Whitmore. He is an old friend from seminary and a spiritual mentor whom Whitmore hasn't seen in more than twenty years. But much has changed. Marbury is now mute, speaking only in sign language, his voice reportedly stolen by God on a trip through western Pennsylvania. On that same journey, in a supposed snowstorm that nobody could verify later, Marbury encountered a terrible car accident and a family that irrevocably changed his life. Drawn into a place he had never imagined, Marbury finds a world where the past repeats itself, only this time with different results. And now Whitmore, his old friend, must decide for himself which events are the manipulation of the hand of God and which are the delusions of a priest who has descended into madness.
