By Malachy Carroll
The Stranger, Malachy G. Carroll’s sole effort as a novelist, follows a mysterious man—“The Stranger”—who must live with his true identity unknown in a remote Irish village. While a terrible secret from deep in his past sequesters the Stranger in anonymity, he impresses his neighbors with his quiet strength and generous charity. When the rumors about his past begin to swirl through the village, however, he will have to choose between revealing his true identity or losing the good faith of his new friends. Written with vim, vigor, and much good humor, The Stranger is a moving story with an exhilarating finish, putting Carroll on the same plane as other talented Catholic novelists like Lloyd C. Douglas and Louis de Wohl.
Malachy G. Carroll (1918–2012) wrote over half a dozen books, including biographies of St. Thomas Aquinas, St. Emilie de Vialar, and Padre Pio. Imaginative and moving, his writings today are sadly little known or appreciated.
