Jennifer Leeper's first book with J. Burrage Publications will definitely to move and touch you.

Jennifer Leeper's Padre follows the travels of Russell Capshaw, a successful New York City advertising executive who suddenly finds himself questioning all of his professional motivations during a business trip to Tokyo. On the heels of this realization, Russell's emotional state spirals out of control, and he binges on illicit drugs in multiple countries for several days, winding up in a drug detox facility in Dublin, Ireland. Russell's closest living relative, Damian Capshaw, who is his father's brother, lives in a small Irish town called Naas. Russell hasn't seen Damian since his own parents' funeral years before, but he contacts him anyway and goes to live with his uncle, where he reconnects with this man he remembers from his childhood. Damian reveals to Russell that he has experienced a spiritual reversion to Catholicism, the faith of his childhood. This surprising revelation from his uncle forces Russell to confront his own beliefs and perceptions about a faith he, too, left behind in childhood. As Russell is caught up in the spell of his uncle's quiet devotion and the lush Irish landscape, he finds himself drawn to a life he never imagined.
