On September 20, 1918, the five wounds of Christ's Passion appeared on the hands, feet, and side of Francesco Forgione, a Capuchin monk later known as Padre Pio, making him the first stigmatized priest in the history of the Roman Catholic Church. From that time, Padre Pio's ministry was characterized by extraordinary miracles and spiritual wonders. Large numbers of devotees were attracted to his confessional and many were privileged to witness his many unusual qualities.In The Conversion, author Corwyn Alvarez captures the essence and spirit of Padre Pio's life and ministry in a fictionalized account of a young man's journey toward faith amid the turmoil of spiritual warfare and spiritual doubt. Reading like a fantastic memoir, Alvarez's masterfully woven first-person account resonates with romantic prose and old country charm.Readers who relish intriguing themes and compelling plots will enjoy The Conversion as much as those who are students of Padre Pio's ministry.About the Author:
Corwyn Alvarez, a freelance writer, was born in Washington, D.C. and grew up in Bethesda, Maryland. He attended the University of Maryland. Later, he pursued graduate studies at the American University. The Conversion is his first work of fiction.
