Abstract:

Patrick Wiseman moved his wife and son back to Newfoundland to start a new Pentecostal church, but when his wife Anne leaves him for a man she meets on Facebook and his son Hab moves in with his girlfriend Natalie--a burgeoning alcoholic with a fiery past--Patrick takes a suicidal leap of faith that brings him face to face with his estranged father, Des, a Catholic mystic who might be covering up an old crime. While Patrick wrestles to come to terms with his failed marriage, Hab struggles to hang on to his tenuous relationship with Natalie. But when a woman is almost burned alive in a nearby house fire and a neighbourhood drunk is beaten within an inch of his life, Hab begins to wonder if Natalie and her housemate Gerry know more than they let on.
