His part-Blackfoot father was stoic and silent; his mother, lively and garrulous but trapped; and at the center of their difficult lives was a deep, dark God." "The ghosts of the parish haunted David Plante long after he left home, lost his belief in any god, and found the center of his life both in love and in writing. However free of his past he became in his maturity, his constant fear remained that the God he was raised with would appear to him and possess him. Finally, Plante came to terms with this possessive God by coming to terms with his ancestry in a stunning spiritual and physical journey that brought him back to Providence, to Canada, to France, and finally to a new understanding of God."--BOOK JACKET.
