Reviews - What do customers think about Passiontide: A Novel?
Anglican priest's first novel a good read Feb 8, 2003
Anglican priest Brian Pearson has moved from his collection of short stories How the Light Gets In, to a full-length novel, and it is welcome. Pearson gives us Father David Corcoran, rector of a Toronto parish, whose world is falling apart. His wife is now involved in another relationship, and his two children seem far off. At the instigation of his bishop, David is sent to a tiny two-point parish on the western coast of Vancouver Island, where he confronts a new world, and his place in it. Pearson writes movingly of David's struggle, but, as in many first novels, there are purple passages which could be edited. The evocation of the Pacific coast landscape, and David's interior landscape also, are well done. This first novel is a good read, giving insight into the life of those who we think are not touched by human emotions. One hopes for further creative writing from Pearson.
