The Chosen is a fanatical religious sect held firmly under the spell of a charismatic leader. Opposition is silenced in weird and sometimes bloody ways. It seems as if the whole town has fallen under a curse.
This is a gripping thriller, the story of a typical rural town under threat from a force more insidious and vindictive than anyone can imagine. It is also a grand love story between a girl passionately seeking a meaning to life and a priest desperately seeking to live up to his pledge.
