Summary
When Spark--the rakish prodigal son--returns unannounced to the dilapidated family home on Maine's Monhegan Island, his arrival launches one unforgettable summer. During his absence, his gentle brother and shrewd, fork-tongued father, Pastor Ragnar, have been caring for Spark's son, Hally. A temperamental adolescent emboldened by tales of his father's mischief, Hally is careening through an identity crisis when he stuns his family by claiming to have had a spiritual vision. Though Spark is permanently dubious, Pastor Ragnar pounces on the chance to revitalize his flagging church. Hally is shoved into the spotlight and, in the frenzy that follows, this fragile family of fathers and sons is pushed to the brink. Their saga is narrated by the character best suited to sniff out the family's secrets: Spark's loyal dog, Ned
Summary
After four years away, Spark Monahan returns home to Maine with a stolen dog as a peace offering for his son, Hally. Spark's reentry into the dysfunctional Monahan family is rocky, and things only get more complicated when 12-year-old Hally claims to have had a vision of the Virgin Mary.
