by William E. Barrett. I read this book for school, and enjoyed reading it. Although it isn't a book that I would read over and over again, there are amusing parts in it and it was a good book.
Homer Smith, an ex-GI is on his way to "see the West", and stops to help some nuns build a fence. When they ask him to build a chapel, he, and everyone in the the town are sure he won't do it. However, thanks to the faith of Mother Maria (and partly the people from town, Homer gets the chapel built for "Lilies of the Field".
