Mary-Margaret O’Reilly is a seemingly harmless young woman, ready and willing to help out Father Diamond in the Sacred Heart church in Battersea. She may not be very bright, and she is sadly overweight, but she can certainly clean, and she is very good with children.
It is the statue of Jesus on the cross Mary-Margaret is especially drawn to, and one day she decides to give Him a thorough and loving cleansing. But moments later she lies unconscious, a great gash in her head, blood on the floor. Word gets out that she has witnessed a miracle, and soon a full-scale religious mania descends on the quiet church, and everyone from Father Diamond to his small but loyal band of parishioners is affected by it. After recovering, Mary-Margaret returns to the church and, obsessively, back to the statue of Jesus. He has told her things, things she must act on, and urgently. The act she decides upon is a shocking one, making The Translation of the Bones a riveting story of passion gone tragically wrong.
