By Karin Harrison



The Wrath of the North Star

This novel deals with several story lines. One of them is the sexual abuse of a young boy by Mark Shelby, a pedophile candidate for the priesthood, and how the boy’s family copes with this tragedy.  Another is the storyline of the seminarian Sean O’Leary, an unsuspecting friend and class mate of Mark’s who has befriended the family of the young boy. Sean is unaware of Mark’s problem and brings Mark him into their home.  The consequent series of events have a profound effect on Sean and he questions his ministry. The third story line delves into the past of the pedophile and the history of his mother, Sarah Shelby, a wealthy widow. When Sarah is confronted with her son’s disease, she must isolate him. She takes him to a monastery on a deserted island in the Aegean Sea.
