WHAT IS IT ABOUT?
With her family facing financial ruin as the Irish rural way of life comes to an end, Hannah's impending marriage to a British lord will settle her mother's debts and save the estate. Catastrophe strikes, however, when a defrocked reverend pushes her to embrace the strange voices that have haunted her since birth. Against the backdrop of Ireland's troubled colonial history, The Veil is a transfixing, mystical ghost story about the search for love and the circularity of time — and the ghosts that are woken by scarcity and the fear of dispossession.
