9780062090096 Jeannette Haienâ€™s award-winning first novel relates the seemingly simple tale of a parishioner confiding in her priest, but the tangled confession brings secrets to light that provoke a moral quandary for not only the clergyman, but the reader as well. Set in a small town in Ireland, Haienâ€™s intimate novel of conversations and dilemmasâ€”perfect for readers of Paul Hardingâ€™s Tinkers, Marilynne Robinsonâ€™s Gilead, and Flannery Oâ€™Connorâ€™s Wise Bloodâ€”is â€œan elegantly written, compact and often subtle tale ofmorality and passion that gives voice to an age-old concern in a fresh wayâ€ (NewYork Times Book Review). Harper Perennial breathes new life into this 1986 classic in a new edition with an introduction by Ann Patchett.
