Told from the perspective of  precocious  fourteen-year-old Peter,   The Elephant Keepers' Children  is about three siblings and how they deal with life alongside their eccentric parents. Peter's father is a vicar, his mother an artisan, and both are equally and profoundly devout. The family lives on the fictional island of Finø , where people of all faiths coexist peacefully. Yet nothing is at it seems.When Peter's parents suddenly go missing, Peter and his siblings fear the worst— has their parents' relentless quest to boost church attendance finally put them in danger? Told with poignancy and humor,   The Elephant Keepers' Children  is a fascinating exploration of fundamentalism versus spiritual freedom, the vicissitudes of romantic and familial love, and the triumph of the human spirit.
