"When Angels Weep" deals with one of the most damaging and controversial issues facing the Roman Catholic Church and the largest settlement for sexual abuse in Canada's history. The book tells the stories of four victims of the late Father Charles Sylvestre, who was found guilty of 47 counts of sexual abuse over a 40-year period in churches in Chatham, London, Sarnia and Windsor. He died in prison serving a three-year sentence. The book chronicles the abuse and the ways it has affected these four women into adulthood, giving them a voice as they speak out against what they experienced. Their stories are similar to those of many other victims who spoke to the author but are unable to come forward and share their experiences publicly.
