							Ben wakes up in a hospital with a hole in his head he can't explain. What he  can remember he'd rather forget. Like how he and his wife, Maggie, drifted  apart. Maggie is alone. Again. With bills to pay and Ben in a psych ward, she  must return to work. But who would hire her in the state she's in? And just as  Maggie turns to her brother, Francis, the Internet explodes with video of his  latest escapade. Francis is an unlikely priest with a drinking problem and  little interest in celibacy. When Maggie takes him in, he knows he may be down  to his last chance. And his best shot at healing might lie in helping Maggie  and Ben reconnect-against all odds.

A stirring meditation on faith, grief, and the eternal human project of forgiving ourselves our sins. It grips the reader's crooked heart and doesn't let go. - Lynn Coady, Scotiabank Giller Prize-winning author of Hell-Going
