Úrscéal a tharraing caint nuair a foilsíodh ar dtús é i 1983, agus é ar ais i gcló tar éis 15 bliana. Sagart paróiste ar oileán Gaeltachta é Tom Connor, fear atá ag troid ar son pobal atá bánaithe ag an imirce agus ag an mbochtanas. Insíonn a bhean tí, Marion, dó go bhfuil sí ag súil lena pháiste. Caithfidh Tom rogha a dhéanamh idir a dhualgas i leith a phobail, a ghrá do Mharion, agus a chreideamh sa tsagartóireacht. Tá idir dhrámatúlacht agus bhriseadh croí i réiteach an scéil seo. Is ar an úrscéal seo a bunaíodh scannán Bhob Quinn, ‘Budawanny’ (1987).
Controversial novel first published in 1985 and now back in print. Tom Connor is the parish priest on a Gaeltacht island, where he is fighting to support a community devastated by emigration and poverty. His housekeeper, Marion, who lives in the parochial house with him, tells him that she is pregnant with his child. Tom must decide between his duty to his parishioners, his love for Marion and his belief in the priesthood.
