In this work of fiction in the classical tradition, Richard Blair depicts a historical situation of a New England community inhabited mainly by French Canadian workers paying homage to a church run by the Irish. The conflicts are as real between the two factions as they are torrid and tragic among the respective members of the two communities. The Fathers are the real fathers -- physical and spiritual -- in conflict with themselves, their community, and their past. In this situation, the young ones rebel with consequences that are brutal and liberating at the same time.
