As members of the Catholic priesthood continue to be accused of sexual abuse, the author examines the effects of these accusations on the families and friends of the priests alleged to have committed such acts. This first-person narrative, from the point of view of Sheila McGann, sister of one such priest, is masterfully narrated by Thérèse Plummer. Plummer excels at narration that is emotional without being mawkish. While raising the question of whether or not Sheila’s brother is guilty, the novel also raises issues of faith in God and in one another. Plummer’s strong narration lends further weight to Haigh’s story, creating an audio experience listeners will want to immerse themselves in. J.L.K.
