A widowed mother fleeing her grief.
A preteen girl lost in the dark.
A soldier of God stalked by the demons of his past.
A supernatural presence threatens a small town.
Liz's faith in her church had always been rock solid. Until the day her husband was ripped from this world by an IED.
Grief-stricken and desperate to flee the memories of her once-happy marriage, Liz uproots her daughter and moves to a small, rural town for a fresh start.
But the promise of new beginnings is not without a dark side. The quaint town harbors a terrible secret, and the ghosts of the past are about to demand their due.
When her daughter, Audrey, becomes drawn into the spectral mystery, Liz turns to one-time soldier and parish priest, Father Felix, for help.
Together they must expose a long-hidden trauma, before Audrey and the town are lost to the darkness forever.
Adapted from his screenplay for the feature film, Todd Downing's THE PARISH is perfect for fans of The Others, The Exorcist and Midnight Mass. It is is an atmospheric ghost story with gothic undertones that will have you reading late into the night...if you dare.
