A contreversial novel first published in 1983, and now back in print after an absence of 15 years. Tom Connor is the parish priest on a Gaeltacht island, where he is actively fighting to support a community devestated by emmigration and poverty. His housekeeper, Marion, who lives in the parochial house with him, tells him that she is pregnant with his child. Tom must decide between his duty to his parishoners, his love for Marion, and his belief in the priesthood. The resolution of his dilemma makes for dramatic and heartbreaking reading. Bob Quinn’s award-winning film Budawanny (1987) is based on this novel.
