About this title

Synopsis:

"Hassler's brilliance has always been his ability to achieve the depth of real literature through such sure-handed, no-gimmicks, honest language that the result appears effortless."
THE NEW YORK TIMES BOOK REVIEW
After more than twenty years in the priesthood, Father Frank Healy is going home. But what he finds at the battered Our Lady's Church are very few believers and Libby Girard, a woman from his past, whom he thought he'd never see again. But Libby's life is unraveling, and as she becomes dependent on him, the lives around them erupt in a tangle of drugs and despair, alcoholism and death. Ultimately, Frank's vocation is tested at its weakest place: his continuing love for Libby.
From the Paperback edition.

Book Description:

Father Frank Healy unexpectedly encounters his former high school girlfriend, Libby, at a time of crisis in his vocation. He is drawn into the lives of Libby, her criminal husband, her troubled daughter, and other characters living in and around an Ojibway reservation in northern Minnesota where Frank pastors a mission. This absorbing, realistic and faith-filled novel explores the territory all of us find ourselves in when we believe ourselves to be “north of hope.”
