The Medal

The Medal

From Ghosts to a Mystical Saint Who Bore the Stigmata…

Award winning author Kerriann Flanagan Brosky, best known for her Ghosts of Long Island books, presents her most inspirational work in her debut novel The Medal. 

Kerriann Flanagan BroskyWhen twenty-one-year-old pastry chef Bethany Fitzpatrick says goodbye to her own dreams to stay home and care for her disabled father, her faith and life are shattered, until years later when a mysterious stranger—who seems to have stepped straight off the set of The Godfather—appears in her bakery, tells her about a deceased Italian friar named Padre Pio who performed miracles, and restores Bethany’s faith in God, herself, and even…angels. 

For those who are caretakers, for those who have lost their faith, for those who have given up on themselves and in God, this book is for you. Intertwined in this beautifully written novel is the incredible true story of the life of Padre Pio, the stigmatic who continues to perform miracles even after his death.
