A bright, attractive copy.

"Father Paul Michel, a Canadian missionary on the desperately poor Caribbean Island of Ganae, rescues a little black boy from abject poverty and sets him on a road towards a dramatic and dangerous future as a revolutionary Catholic priest and, later, as the first democratically elected leader in a land of dictators and despair. Jeannot, as Father Paul calls him, is young and brilliant, a messianic orator, who bravely urges his black brethren to rise against their oppressors, alarming the Vatican in Rome, and making deadly enemies of the cynical Ganaen bishops, the selfish mulatto rich, and the ruling military junta. Is he a saint or a rabble-rouser? Even Father Paul, who tells this story, is unsure of Jeannot's true motives. His enemies will stop at nothing --- assassinations, arson, brutal repression --- to destroy him. In this moving novel of post-communist turmoil in one of the forgotten places of this earth, immortal souls are weighed against mortal misery in a superbly crafted drama which is Brian Moore at his most gripping and profound."; 8vo - over 7" - 9" tall
