Advent Reflections: A Conversation with the Author

We’re so thrilled to share Advent Reflections from author, Joe Benevento, this year with subscribers at Catholic Charities. Ahead of releasing our first episode, we sat down with Joe to talk about the process of writing his novel, My Perfect Wife, Her Perfect Son – which was released earlier this year. In addition to being an excellent Christmas gift for friends and family, purchases of the book directly support the services and outreach of Catholic Charities to those who need help the most.
