The New York Times bestselling author of the popular novel Room, Emma Donoghue here pens a harsh and eerily beautiful short as part of her acclaimed collection The Woman Who Gave Birth to Rabbits. Set in 18th-century Dumfriesshire, Scotland, "Revelations" tells the story of a radical cult attempting a 40-day fast in emulation of the biblical prophet Elijah. Former Presbyterian minister Hugh is at first enthusiastic about the endeavor, his hungry body "strengthened" by spirituality. But as members starve while cult leader Friend Mother mysteriously grows stronger, Hugh must question God's true will-the will of a God he is beginning to fear.
