The myth persists. Even in our modern world, countless people believe that without God, one's life has no purpose or meaning - that the lives of atheists are devoid of joy and happiness because they are not religious.

Starting out as one of the highest-grossing publishing projects on Kickstarter, A Better Life highlights the various ways that those who are not religious find joy, meaning, and purpose in life.

Product Description

An art mystery rocks society and the Church.

Secrecy and forbidden love escalate into extortion and murder.

It happens because art conservator Jana Hayes is unaware, when she is mugged in Venice, that theft, murder, and a frantic chase through Europe are about to shake up her life. Curator Rob Anderson, who happens to be a priest, brings a mysterious icon into her lab; it upsets her tranquil ordinary days.

The ancient panel poses questions about the identity of New Testament evangelist Luke. Its astounding secret pits a vengeful archbishop against her, and ruins friendships with work colleagues.

Follow an ill-fated couple on a quest that charges from Venice to Malta, and then to the Byzantine town of Ravenna. A chase that escalates to disaster in Damascus. Is it possible to keep the secret about who St Luke was?

Church politics and forbidden romance merge together in this page-turner.
A superb mystery from Rosanne Dingli.
