Baker & Taylor
Serving as the link between her cloistered sisters and the outside world at Our Lady of Hope Monastery in the New Mexico desert, Sister Agatha is asked to investigate when a young girl claims to be receiving visitations from the Virgin Mary.

McMillan Palgrave
Sister Agatha is an extern nun in the cloistered order at the Our Lady of Hope Monastery near a small New Mexican desert town. As such, Sister Agatha is the link between her cloistered sisters and the outside world. Usually this means running errands in the monastery's slowly dying car (dubbed the Anti-Chrystler) or their motorcycle, with Pax, the order's German Shepard, in the side car. But sometimes it means something a bit more -- like now when the diocese is upset by reports of a young girl whose parents claim is receiving visitations from the Virgin Mary and providing insight into future events.
Wanting neither to ignore a real miracle, nor give credence to what might be merely an attempt to defraud the faithful, they ask Sister Agatha to investigate. But her inquires are soon complicated when the girl herself disappears, apparently having been kidnapped, and Sister Agatha will need more than faith to bring her home.

Blackwell North Amer
Sister Agatha is an extern nun in the cloistered order at the Our Lady of Hope Monastery, located near a small New Mexican desert town. As an extern, Sister Agatha is the link between her cloistered sisters and the outside world. Usually this means running errands in the monastery's slowly dying car (dubbed the Anti-Chrysler) or on their motorcycle with Pax, the order's German shepherd, in the side car. Sometimes her duties involve something more - like when a local girl goes missing in the middle of the night and her mother's car is run off the road, leaving her mother injured and unconscious in the car's front seat.
Natalie Tannen is the eight-year-old niece of Father Mahoney and a controversial figure in the local community. She's claimed to have a guardian angel that only she can see, one who tells her things, and some of the locals have been connecting her with supposed miracles. Some people have wanted her to use her "powers" for miraculous cures or to reveal future events. However, it appears that someone has something far more sinister in mind. Now it's up to Sister Agatha not only to find and protect the missing girl, but in order to keep her safe, she must uncover the truth behind the gift and her "guardian angel" before it is too late.
