This is a story about our favorite true crime
storyteller. Louise Penny has written 16 novels and
each one understands the truth behind crime in a way very few CSI
or True Crime podcasts actually do.
What Penny writes are morality tale crime novels that understands
how murder, like Christ taught, begins in the heart, often decades
before the actual crime.
And what anchors us when we feel overwhelmed by the brutality of
the world is the exact so-called ordinary life that Christie and
Lisa-Jo savor on this podcast. And that Penny writes so vividly in
May this episode be a reminder of how the ordinary rhythms of
life—satisfying food with friends, a warm bench in the sun, the joy
of a library--are like a lighthouse in the storm, a cape of good
hope, a sanctuary of goodness. No matter how terrible, dark or
scary the world outside might seem.
