'Quite simply a masterpiece ... I am completely bowled over by it; by the power of its writing, by the vividness of its scene painting and by the stories it tells' A. N. Wilson

'Where there is great love there are always miracles'

Two French priests have been sent to New Mexico to reawaken the faith. There, they must contend with unforgiving landscapes, danger, rebellion and loneliness. But through their many years together they are sustained by faith, friendship and the awe-inspiring majesty that surrounds them. A work of great simplicity and sublime beauty, Willa Cather's acclaimed novel asks, what is a life well lived?

Death Comes for the Archbishop is a masterpiece by the author of O Pioneers! and the great novelist of American frontier life.

'Its whole effect works slowly and mysteriously ... a major, and rare, artistic achievement' A. S. Byatt
