The Train Home
"Magical . . . . A quirky, elliptical tale of obsessive emotions and double lives." The New York Times Book Review
By the author of "Daughters of the New World," a unique and captivating tale of obsession, redemption and romance . . . in the most unlikely of places.
A chance meeting on a Washington subway leads Annie Blakemore -- an aspiring opera singer with two children and an abusive husband -- into the life of a handsome priest, Will Huston. Yet Huston is not what he seems. He is an Irish actor in disguise, on a dark mission of personal vengeance that will sweep Annie into its dangerous whirpool -- a whirlpool she cannot help herself from entering, even if it means she will drown.
