As a child, Laura Brady was sent to live with relatives in
Burlington, Ontario. Her family in Ireland was never discussed, and no
explanation was ever given as to why she had been abandoned by them. Now a
successful author, Laura, is informed that her biological mother is dying, and
she travels back in search of answers. She arrives in the rural Irish town of
Drumasheen and attempts to establish her own history, but in doing so, she
learns of a dark force within the family.
In 1914 her grandfather, Edward Brady, went to war, but in the mountains above Gallipoli, he encountered a sinister presence referred to as 'The Devourer' in the tales of Turkish folklore. What returned home from the battlefields was an abomination that violated and abused. When Edward passed, it was hoped that the evil had died with him, but, as Laura investigates further, she uncovers a decades-old mystery filled with death and despair. Now that she is here, forces are at work to ensure she never leaves.
Told in dual timelines, Delphine looks at the loyalty of family, the horrors of war, and at the insidious evil that has bound them together.
