Galilee is an American psychological thriller horror novel written by D.L. Tracey. It was first published by iUniverse publishers in December 2009, and then was re-published in 2021 by AuthorHouse publishers. The novel?s narrative is based on the relationship of its four main characters ? the newly ordained young priest, Father Hickey, fresh out of seven very long years of seminary school. Young, overachieving, and ambitious priest is sent to a backwater parish--and to make matters even worse, the priest he will replace dies just before he gets there, throwing him into a strange situation with no guidance. The small parish The Church of Saint Peter at the edge of a fishing village was not what he hoped for as his first assignment.
The young priest meets Michael McDonough, owner of The Crow?s Nest bar, while administering last rites to a fisherman on the docks of Galilee on his first day at the parish, and a friendship mentorship begins without the priest?s knowledge. A young waitress at the Crow?s Nest by the name of Janie befriends the young priest and allows him into her troubled past.
The fourth person is Father Gilday, the priest who died a few days before the young priest?s arrival.
Galilee is a story about the horror that can befall a fishing village when no one is piecing together the signs!
