A story of spiritual values, about a devoted young priest in an Irish fishing village who battles with the Celtic superstitions of the villagers...The Irish meaning of the name of the village-Killknock-is "e;the church on the mountain."e; It is a little place, no more than two hundred souls and all but one of them Catholic. A poor and ancient fishing village, it is devoutly Christian while still believing in old Celtic myths, legends and superstitions. Who the stranger was, no one knew. But certainly he was a worker of miracles, or at least a great healer, for he made sixty-year-old Caitlin look like a girl again and gave Feeney back his hearing. Some of the villagers, noting that the stranger had scars on his hands and feet as though nails had once been driven through them, had unvoiced suspicions."e;All the stranger said was:"e;I thought that my business here would take care of itself. But it did not. And so I have come to attend to it personally."e;"e;A beautiful and lyrical story, blessed with the simplicity of truth and faith...If you have a heart, it will reach out to you, and give you the comfort of the seas and the mountains..."e;-The Associated Press"e;Let the stranger arrive in a primitive Irish fishing village where ancient nature-worship blends with revealed religion, and you have a situation calling not only for the gift of the word but for profound wisdom as well....It is evident that Leonard Wibberley has both."e;-San Francisco Chronicle"e;It is easily the best fiction that Wibberley has yet written, a story which deserves that much-abused adjective-unforgettable."e;-Los Angeles Times
