Time without number …you must have heard the expression many times, “You are what you eat.” Well, have you ever really thought about what that means? And before you answer, may I also ask…, do you think about it when you’re making your food choices? Well, the truth is that many of us don’t. And so, in many ways, we do become what we eat, literally…

At the retreat, she meets Father Derek Lindenberg, who is noted for his absolute resolve to stifle his human feelings to fit the unyielding framework of his priesthood. The two form a close bond and then, the unexpected happens: they fall deeply, irrevocably in love. But how can they survive the grueling twists and turns of the machinery of life?

What follows is a gripping story of how the incessant pendulum of our daily lives can act erratically; how seemingly unshakeable principles, like those borne of tradition and religious beliefs, can suddenly be displaced and challenged; and how the forces of love and fate will test the unbending rules of society.

The Velvet Thorn uncovers the subtle shades of emotion that, though muffled by convention, forge their way to escape and express themselves in the most wonderful prism of colors that only love can see and understand.
