From the Back Cover:
An intense drama that unveils shocking family secrets...
In Quebec City, matriarch Claire Du Lac hires Brigid Donovan ostensibly to write a history of Maine's H.O.P.E. House, an interfaith community. But Brigid's actual assignment is to look into the brutal death of David Thorne, Claire Du Lac's son-in-law.
Sister Genevieve, daughter of the dead man, is a willing novitiate in a cloister, if Brigid believes Sister Pat or Sister Barnabas; a captive if she believes Claire Du Lac.
The murdered man himself is an enigma â" a recovered alcoholic whose acts have won him great affection, but whose past is a mosaic of tragedy. Brigid herself is a fifty-two year old alcoholic struggling day-to-day with recovery, constantly taunted and tempted by old drinking buddy Ed Kelly.
A maze of Thorne family interconnections, and the oblique information offered by the quirky inhabitants of Surry in the quirky state of Maine, lead Brigid from David's widow, the haunted, ethereal Angele, to one link after another in the complex mystery. As Brigid begins to unlock the horrifying secrets of the Thorne family, she and new friend Sister Pat find themselves in peril of their lives...
