About this item

John L'Heureux has been acclaimed as "[a] master storyteller ... elegant, cunning, and wickedly funny" (The Washington Post) . Now, in a pitch-perfect, deeply satisfying work of fiction, he enters the world of an unorthodox young priest whose faith is put to the test. Young and extremely charismatic, Father LeBlanc has just been transferred out of Boston because of his dangerous ideas on sex, marriage, and birth control -- and his failure to maintain proper decorum. Exiled to a summer beach community, he looks after elderly Father Moriarty who, on the edge of death, is beginning to question his belief in God. While Father LeBlanc is guarding his own sanctity, two compelling women come to him for answers. Then a miracle occurs -- the impossible happens right before his eyes -- and Father LeBlanc finds his faith and his vows, his life itself, all called into question.
