This powerful novel takes us to Ireland in the 1960's where we follow the life of Odran Yates as he enters Clonliffe Seminary in 1972 after his mother informs him that he has a vacation to the priesthood.  Forty years later, Odran's devotion has been challenged by the revelations that have shattered the Irish people's faith in the church.  But when a family tragedy opens wounds from his past, he is forced to confront the demons that have raged within a once respected institution and recognize his own complicity in their propagation.  Facilitated by Karen Margulies.  All are welcome.
