Father Seamus McCord is a man of the cloth who has convinced himself he can ignore the pestering qualms he’s had for years regarding his choice to become a priest and take his final vows, solidifying his devotion to his vocation. He’s justified in his mind he can wall off the doubts and embrace the joy at being assigned to a wonderful parish. He has good friends in northern Virginia and it is easy to fall into the fantasy of a full life, always ignoring the dark secret in his heart.
Just when he believes he has everything under control, his world is turned upside-down upon learning he’s being reassigned to a rural parish in southern Missouri, not far from where he grew up. The changes he is facing force him to consider necessary decisions he’s been putting off for far too long. It doesn’t help when he meets the pastor of his new parish and learns the man has taken an instant dislike to him.
Meeting a handsome man at a laundromat one night only further complicates the situation and clouds his judgment, bringing more difficulties he doesn’t need. All the old doubts he believes to be safely buried push to the surface upon looking into the man’s blue-green eyes as Seamus falls into a spiral, believing the time for prayer has passed.
If Seamus follows his heart, he might lose his family and his church, but if he ignores that insistent organ, how can he contain the frustrated man inside him fighting to get out?
