It is Better to Marry than to Burn

In a world where some people still think it's a good idea to take vows of poverty, chastity and obedience to a religious order (hint: this world), one man must come to terms with the consequences of wanting to have the cake he promised never to eat. Another man must amuse himself by tormenting his fellow monks, another must try to figure out who has been stealing from the monastery's treasury, while one woman must set about stealing one man's heart right from under the nose of God. It is Better to Marry than to Burn is a story of infatuation, of secrets kept and secrets spilled, of lifelong vows standing in the way of momentary gratification. It is also a story of prayers that would be best unanswered, a most incompetent detective, and a dog who would give his life for a tennis ball. This book is sacred and dirty and funny and sad, and as such may not be suitable for staunch atheists, religious fundamentalists, or the pure of heart.
