But not even Father& #160; & #160; Gunn, the parish priest, who knows most of what goes& #160; & #160; on behind Shancarrig's closed doors, or Dr. Jims, & #160; & #160; the village doctor, who knows all the rest, & #160; & #160; realizes that not everything in the placid village is& #160; & #160; what it seems.

From the Hardcover edition.
