"For it has always been my earnest belief that even what seems utterly reliable and mundane - an ordinary woman's love for her good-looking husband and her child, for example - cannot be relied on. Nothing is ever what it seems. Some rot gnaws away at the fabric of the universe." This is the conviction of Ignatius Flood, Jesuit novitiate and "Soldier of Christ", sent to an out-of-the-way farm in rural Ireland to investigate what may have been a miracle, but could be a hint of something far darker. Falling for the beautiful Eileen, Flood becomes convinced she is a simulacrum -- "something that resembled a woman, but without a soul, though it lived and breathed and stared at me with dark, frightened eyes... created only to cast her spell over every man who clapped eyes on her." Torn between his religious duty and his own feelings, Flood must plumb the mystery of what is going on at the farm, see through its apparent normality to the weird secret beneath. The story of an unworldly man thrown into a world that forces him to face his own darker self, Fallon's novel keeps up the suspense right to the end.

An outstanding novella. Unforgettable, now sympathetic, now suspect narrator of a story that keeps you gripped and wondering till the end.
