Jonah Devlin arrives in an isolated fishing village in Labrador to serve as pastor of a community church that the Anglicans had abandoned years earlier. He meets Gabrielle Pye, a young waitress struggling to raise her two brothers in the depressed economy of maritime Canada. When the Trans Labrador Highway opens the tiny town to the outside world, Gabrielle's crime of forgery, committed when she was just thirteen, makes her a target of the Canadian Police. But that is not all. Just as Devlin attempts to help her, reports of his troubled past reach Passup. Newspaper stories allege that as a Catholic priest in the States he had committed unspeakable crimes, forcing him to defend his position to his new community. While Devlin grapples to make sense of Catholic doctrine and endeavors to apply it to his new congregation, the often quirky citizens of Passup and the surrounding villages educate him on the real purpose of faith.
