Description
In the Irish town ofSchancarrig, the young people carve their initials--andthose of their loves-into the copper beech tree infront of the schoolhouse. But not even FatherGunn, the parish priest, who knows most of what goeson behind Shancarrig's closed doors, or Dr. Jims, the village doctor, who knows all the rest, realizes that not everything in the placid village iswhat it seems.
