Peter Whitmore, an administrator for the Diocese of St. Paul, is requested to enquire and finally discredit a clergyman who, it truly is rumored, possesses a outstanding energy — the facility to heal.

The priest in query, Jim Marbury, is not any stranger to Whitmore. he's an outdated buddy, a seminary roommate, and a non secular mentor whom Whitmore has no longer visible in additional than 20 years. yet a lot has replaced. continually just a little unconventional, Marbury is now mute, conversing merely in signal language, his voice reportedly stolen by way of God on a visit that he took via western Pennsylvania. On that very same trip, in a storm from snow that no-one can confirm, Marbury encountered a poor automobile coincidence and a kinfolk who replaced his existence irrevocably.

Marbury will get drawn right into a international he didn't anticipate — an international the place the earlier repeats itself, the place the magical isn't in a publication yet alive and respiring. And now Whitmore, his previous buddy, has to choose for himself which occasions are rather the hand of God and that are the delusions of Marbury long gone mad.
