Catch up on the video from Week 1 of the Catholic Mom Fall 2023 Book Club, featuring In Pieces by Rhonda Ortiz.
Our Catholic Mom Book Club for Fall 2023 features a fascinating historical novel by a Catholic author. In her richly detailed post-Revolutionary War love story, Rhonda Ortiz transports the reader to 18th-century Boston.

About Chrism Press:
Chrism Press is an imprint of WhiteFire Publishing dedicated to stories informed by Catholic and Orthodox Christianity that may not be able to find a home in either mainstream secular or Christian (Evangelical) presses. These two ancient faiths share a sacramental and incarnational vision that illuminates the imagination, as well as a centuries-old literary tradition spanning from Dante to Dostoevsky and beyond.
Whether Christian themes are presented overtly, subtly, or symbolically, Chrism Press seeks Spirit-filled fiction in all genres. We are not afraid of darkness; we enjoy the strange and the weird, as well as humor, romance, adventure, and fun. We strongly believe that fiction should never be boring. We invite readers to “Anoint Your Imagination” with a wide array of stories that enlighten while they entertain.
