About the Book Few things are ever as they appear on the surface. For Benjamin St. Croix, life in an all-male maximum security mental health facility is its own society with its own rules. His challenge as a Multifaith Chaplain and psychotherapist is to create cracks in the awareness of individuals often deemed to be without souls and unworthy of forgiveness. In Bending Light, the reader will be drawn into a conversation about basic human dignity, exploitation and vulnerability. Hanging from the "thin gold chain" of the story is a "massive jewel" that will challenge the reader to rethink long held confidences. The message concerns everybody, especially those who think they know what is best for others.
