At the top of Afton Mountain, at the Carmelite Greyfriar monastery,
a statue of the Virgin Mary is crying tears of blood. Some of those
in the nearby town of Crozet, Virginia believe it to be a
heaven-sent miracle while others are skeptical. But everyone is
talking. Things on the mountain get even more interesting when
kindly old Brother Thomas is found dead, kneeling in the snow in
front of the statue. Did he die of a heart attack during prayers?
Or is this a case of foul play?
