In twelve rich stories that move from smalltown Ontario to old-time Hollywood, from devotion in a tiny Irish parish to the three-ring piety of Lourdes, Stephen Finucan makes a startling appearance on the CanLit frontier. Finucan's vibrant characters face poignant battles with religion, courage, and daily life. In On Angel's Wings an apparition of the Virgin Mary is run down by a drunken Rotarian's El Camino on Founder's Day, and an eight-year-old boy struggles to understand the meaning of faith. In The Honeymooners an elderly man decides it's finally time to take his Alzheimer's-stricken wife on the vacation he's been promising her for sixty years. And in Windows a recent divorcee empowers herself through home renovation. In these worlds, subtle gestures and minor events can suddenly turn lives in exactly the opposite direction of where they were supposed to lead.
