I had some difficulty figuring out what the story was. Father Tim and wife Cynthia travel to Ireland for a vacation, a well-deserved one. They stay at a bed and breakfast that has several other guests.

Things happen. Someone breaks in. The daughter of the house is moody and difficult. There is friction between the owner and his brother, who inherited a much bigger house. Father Tim gets into the lives of everyone else - he is usually invited in - and by saying the right things he fixes many things.

There is a lot of god in here. Trust in God and all will be good. Surrender to God and forgive others and forgive yourself.

I did not realize it was to be a religious book (after all, other fictional priests don't preach much) and if I had known I wouldn't have picked it up. I am sure it is comforting to many people but not to me.
