While on holiday on the French/Italian border, Brian 'Bad' Phelan -- an expert carver -- helps to recover a body from a rocky, wave-swept cove. The dead woman bears a striking resemblance to a girl he met years ago, shortly before she disappeared in a flooded French cave. Haunted by the strange connection, Bad is compelled to investigate.
Through a series of increasingly eerie leads, Bad learns the story of the Blessed Martine Raimondi, a World War II Resistance heroine and martyred nun. He also meets Eve Moskelute, the beautiful widow of a celebrated French artist; Daniel Octave, a Jesuit who investigates miracles; and, most surprisingly, Eve's otherworldly sister, Dawn.
Daylight combines Elizabeth Knox's greatest gifts: her wildly imaginative storytelling, her sensuous prose and her clear eye for atmosphere and place. Much of the action takes place in a world of caves, secret passages and hidden cloisters. In this 'world beneath the world', Bad Phelan comes face to face with history and myth, with phantoms whose hearts are still beating, and hungry, and able to break.
