A sixteen-year-old runaway, Ann Holmes, is an itinerant mushroom picker who lives in a tent. But on a November afternoon, in the foggy woods of North Fork, Washington, the Virgin comes to her, clear as day. Now, it is up Father Collins, a young priest new to North Fork, to impartially evaluate the veracity of Ann's sightings. But, as word spreads of Ann's claims to see the Virgin Mary, thousands, including the press, converge upon the declining logging town which becomes the site of a pilgrimage of the faithful and the desperate.

What a superb legend Guterson has created here. As earthy and realistic as it is, this novel "rocks" in ghostlier ways. I read it more than 10 years ago in fogbound northern California, as close as I could get to this book's sunless stomping grounds. By now an avid Guterson fan, I'm ready to reread it. Try it, you'll like it!
