Your loving family 'dent' Courtesy submission Provincial Justice, the first novel published by Portal resi- dent Gerry Hernbrode, resonates with her experi- ences as a nun and Tucson inner city school principal which make this gripping suspense story more than a good read. Appro- priately for a book about education, it illumines the reali- ties of a nun's life, such as the weight of the 1 pound serge habit, and the discipline that ulti= mutely saves Prin- cipal Kate Mahoney from a horrible death. Kate, who, like the author, left the Sisters when she realized she had no true vocation, is waked from a vivid dream of her Mother Provincial. The visitation leaves Kate too worried to sleep so she goes to her school in the middle of the night to hear the killing of her much disliked su- perintendent. What follows is a tangled web of motives and more deaths while Kate struggles to keep Saguaro Elemen- tary a safe haven for her 600 students, many of whom have no stability or refuge at home. These chil- dren are strikingly d ~IY:~-" gll~t smart Lol~i¢, ~c)~er- sized Boomer, prissy tittle Gladys and other heart- catching youngsters. Besides overseeing the school's daily bustle, helping teact/ers and dealing with angry, war- r i e d authentic or negligent parents, Kate also visits dangerous neighborhoods m search of truants and elusive parents, for which she is chided by tough ex- CIA School Re- source Officer Theo Bulaski. He turns out to be a great coach for the kids' ball team, though, and he and Kate sink their differences to find the killer of the superin- tendent and ex- onerate one of Kate's best teachers.
