This story takes place in Boston during 2002, the height of the priest abuse scandals. It is told from the point of view of Sheila, the half sister of the accused priest. It is a dysfunctional family drama and the author does a great job of evoking the time and the values of working class Irish catholic and of creating suspense and keeping us wondering if Father Breen is guilty or innocent. Father Arthur Breen is a well-respected priest but his half sister and brother are not sure what to believe his mother is the only one that continues to have faith in his innocence. Father Art himself is not forthcoming on the issue for his own reasons. One does not have to be from a catholic background to enjoy this well told story.
