As a quiet boy in 1950s New England, Jaime Morton falls under the spell of a charismatic young minister. Following a crushing family tragedy the reverend has a crisis of faith and is driven from the town. As a troubled adult, Jaime encounters the minister who saves him from his life of addiction. Yet the pastor's motives and methods are murky and Jaime is soon caught up once again. This is classic Stephen King; creepy New England location, sinister character lurking under a harmless facade, and a slightly over-the-top ending. Fans of his work, as well as people interested in doubt, faith, and electricity will enjoy Revival.
