The Immaculate Conception
In the isolated parish of Nativité , 75 residents have recently died in a blaze. The survivors’ fractured world is suffocatingly circumscribed by neighbors and the Church. Focusing on troubled bank clerk Remouald Tremblay and desperately unrequited Clé mentine Clé ment, Gaé tan Soucy’ s acclaimed fourth novel explores the same ominously enchanted terrain as his award-winning "Vaudeville!" Soucy brilliantly illuminates the dark corners where ordinary people fear to look and reminds that for every moment of justice, there are numerous crimes that will remain forever secret.
