Additional Information

Jonah Devlin arrives at an isolated fishing village in Labrador to serve as pastor of a community church the Anglicans had abandoned years earlier. Gabrielle Pye, one of his congregation, is a young waitress struggling to raise her two brothers in the depressed economy of maritime Canada. When the Trans Labrador Highway opens the tiny town to the outside world, Gabrielle’s crime of forgery, committed when she was just thirteen, makes her a target of the Canadian police and inevitable imprisonment.

Just as Devlin attempts to help her, reports of his troubled past reach Passup. At a former parish, Devlin had been accused of unspeakable acts against his parishioners. Will the quirky citizens of Passup and surrounding villages fire him too, or will they reveal their own convictions anchored in love and community?

I am not Roman Catholic; maybe I would have "gotten" this book more if I were. I really struggled to figure out what this book was all about. At times it seemed like it was supposed to be a story about a priest who struggles to figure out who he is and what he believes after being sent to this little, out of the way place because of some power struggles in the church. But it was so superficial that I couldn't find the struggle. He mentions a couple of times to himself about having a weakness in the area of sexual sin, and then his sexual exploits are described in somewhat graphic detail that glorifies it. Really? If he struggles with it, where's the struggle? His inner turmoil that supposedly led to what the church didn't like was summed up in one sermon. This story could have been so much more. It has a unique setting and some interesting characters but the story falls kind of flat.
I think this book had great potential, but didn't exactly "take off." It was an interesting enough story, but I really felt it wasn't very well thought out. Being someone who grew up in the Province of Newfoundland Labrador, I noted several parts of the story were highly unrealistic.
This one could have used a little more action, but was a sweet, nice book that was very interesting most of the time. It was an enjoyable read.
