Set in the spring of 1975, this story of a teenage girl in love with two boys, and the priest who is the link between the three of them, is filled with suspense as these characters, and the lives they've touched in their small town, intermingle with an unforgettable force.
Jocelyn has two boys in her life. And a priest.
Gabe has shared fourteen years of growing up next door. He's “a golden boy, an all-star.” Yet now, in the spring of 1975, he's missing, disappeared on the brink of senior year at Weaver High. The whole town is set to go searching for him.
Benny has only been in New Hampshire since January, yet for Joss, he's the answer to a long-held prayer to be someone in somebody's eyes.
She loves them both.
Father Warren — hair turning white and “kind of cool in his black clothes” — is a link between the three of them. Or a wedge. Or a threat. For Joss, the priest holds power over her sense of herself; for Benny, power over his soul; for Gabe, so mysterious and alluring, he holds the power of destiny.
In a story shot with suspense, these four characters, and the lives of others they've touched in their small town, intermingle with unforgettable force.
