Whenever Lucinda Walters experiences tragedy and loss, she knows there's one sure place where she can turn for solace and strength: her Church. She counts on her faith to carry her through when her daughter Rita dies, leaving behind two little boys and a devastated husband with a... weakness for alcohol. Lucinda steps in to help her son-in-law Mike O'Donnell raise David and Jack, and as Mike's alcoholism progresses, so does her need for the comfort only her faith can provide. When Father Louis Delanoit offers to spend extra time with Jack, now twelve years old and just beginning altar boy training, Lucinda is honored to have her grandson receive special attention from the priest. But Jack's innocence is shattered when the priest's true intentions are revealed, trapping the boy in a web of silence and abuse, woven by Father Delanoit's manipulation and the blind faith of the community. Blind Faith is the story of the Roman Catholic clergy sexual abuse scandal as seen through the eyes of young Jack O'Donnell and his family in the late 60s and early 70s, and the pain, heartache, and challenge to their faith which they endured because of one priest's abuse and the systematic cover-up engaged in by church hierarchy.
