During the years 1845-51 a great famine occurred in Ireland when the yearly potato crop failed and one million people died of starvation and disease and a million more were forced to leave their homes. Many charitable organizations donated food and supplies with the notable exception of the Catholic Church. To protest his pope's neglect, a young parish priest, Father Francis Flanaghan, sacrificed his life. Local people soon came to believe that the ghost of the dead priest appeared to successive owners of Tragane House and commanded them to inform the world how Pope Pius IX failed to feed his sheep. When an American, John Terrell, becomes the master of the haunted mansion and the ghost invades his dreams, his sanity is again threatened, as it had been after his prolonged combat in the Viet Nam War, until a lovely English woman informs him that her new book includes the negligence of the Church of Rome during the famine years. The story attempts to open men's minds to a belief in God, the Creator, that doesn't compel men to murder each other as practiced by today's man-made religions.
