|Plot Summary of An Odor of Sanctity|
|"Frank Yerby is at his best with the story of Alaric who is not quite the same as the rest of his society. He questions the faith and prejudices of his culture which is Spain in the middle ages occupied by Christians, Jews and Moors. The story follows Alaric from his noble Gothic lifestyle through trials and slavery to a satisfactory conclusion. "
