The Loney - Andrew Michael Hurley

A family goes on a Holy Week pilgrimage to a desolate stretch of the English coastline called the Loney for penitence, prayer, and to heal the oldest son of his muteness and intellectual disability. Wrought in Hurley’s exquisitely menacing prose, the eerie details and sinister plotlines build. With a hint of foreshadowing here, an exquisitely macabre detail there, the reader is swept along with the crescendo of creepiness in a narrative that explores the symbiotic relationship between God and the Devil and the blurry boundary between superstition and religion.
