When a new highway threatens to bypass the town of Rossmore and cut through Whitethorn Woods, everyone has a passionate opinion about whether the town will benefit or suffer. But young Father Flynn is most concerned with the fate of St. Ann’s Well, which is set at the edge of the woods and slated for destruction. People have been coming to St. Ann’s for generations to share their dreams and fears, and speak their prayers. Some believe it to be a place of true spiritual power, demanding protection; others think it’s a mere magnet for superstitions, easily sacrificed.
 
Father Flynn listens to all those caught up in the conflict, as the men and women of Whitethorn Woods must decide between the traditions of the past and the promises of the future.

CagneyC's thoughts on "Whitethorn Woods"
updated on:6/16/2010

Reasonably interesting book, but more a collection of vignettes than a novel.  Too many characters, most of them unconnected except peripherally by the St. Ann's Well in Whitethorn Woods .  Could have been better if the author had concentrated on a few of the characters and developed them and their stories more, and dropped many of the others.
