Book Description

April 9 2012

A lonely vicar investigates the dark secrets of one remote island community in a strange and haunting graphic novel

A female vicar arrives on a small island to take up a new post. It is a strange opportunity: the parish is brand new, and set up by the community itself, who have built themselves a church modeled on St. Peter's Basilica. The vicar is surprised and delighted by the enthusiastic welcome she receives. The church is full day after day, and the parishioners compete for her attention. Not many are interested in discussing spiritual matters however, and as she gets to know them, the vicar becomes aware of a split in the community: a terrible secret that is not spoken of, but which plagues the island, pitting neighbor against neighbor. She hears whispers of a missing young girl whose parents died in a mysterious blaze, of secret abortions, and of a fearsome ghost. What the villagers most want is absolution, but can the Vicar Woman provide it for them? This strange and discomforting story is rendered in extraordinarily intricate and atmospheric artwork.
