The Jesuit is a short novella by David Fredette that follows a man struggling with mental health issues in his journey of navigating his affliction by rediscovering his faith. Peter Leduc was the youngest of his ten siblings, growing up in a small town on the Great South Bay called Bayport. After graduating from university, Dan Fulton from Marine Dresler offers him a job as the first engineer for a research vessel stationed in Dubai, UAE. But an unknown illness forces Peter to return home after three weeks. He returns home, only to be involved in a scuffle with cops, which results in him being charged with assault. As he is diagnosed with severe depression, Peter realizes that the true meaning of life lies in helping others and rediscovers his faith during his path to recovery.
Author David Fredette tells a moving tale of a man struggling with mental illness who finds hope and salvation through his faith after years of wandering lost in the darkness. Inspired by real-life events, The Jesuit is a riveting story that showcases the power of faith and how it can restore a person's self-belief and attitude to life. Despite being primarily targeted toward Christians, non-Christian readers will also find plenty to enjoy in the story as the themes explored in the narrative are universal. Peter Leduc is a complex character with flaws that make him feel all the more realistic and thoroughly compelling to read. I am glad that I read The Jesuit. Highly recommended.
