Publisher's Description

"A realistic Christian novel of hope in a non-Christian age."—New England Quarterly
"A deeply felt and eloquently expressed work . . . A quiet, gentle novel of considerable insight and charm . . ."—Library Journal
"O’Connor succeeds in delineating poignantly the overwhelming spiritual storms of the soul which assail the conscientious clergyman."—The Christian Century
 Winner of the Pulitzer Prize for Fiction
 
In this moving novel, Father Hugh Kennedy, a recovering alcoholic, returns to Boston to repair his damaged priesthood. There he is drawn into the unruly world of the Carmodys, a sprawling, prosperous Irish family teeming with passion and riddled with secrets. The story of this entanglement is a beautifully rendered tale of grace and renewal, of friendship and longing, of loneliness and spiritual aridity giving way to hope.
