Set in the late 1960s, this superb novel tells of the awakening of middle-aged, Midwestern priest Joe Hackett. With brilliant use of the telling detail and an unerring ear for dialogue, ``Powers succeeds in conveying the nuts and bolts of a clergyman's life even as he illuminates the hidden corners of his soul,'' lauded PW.
