As always, Stan Law delights in the exploration of the human, seemingly unlimited, potential. The hero of this novel takes us on a wild ride from Montreal in Canada over to Europe, from Gdansk in northern Poland to the ancient walls of Vatican City. Yet he finds real enchantment within the enigmatic realms, where most of us fear to tread. Excerpts from the book can be read at
The future never looked brighter.
The Fellowship of the Royal College of Physicians under his belt, Dr. Peter Thornton's thoughts gravitate towards financial rewards, prestige, hosts of admiring nurses. Finally. After arduous years of exhausting work the good life is imminent.
Or so it seemed.
An insidious curse threatens to obliterate his promising future. A Gift of Healing chooses to manifest itself through Dr.Thornton's unwilling hands. Not healing resulting from years of studious application but through a power that contradicts everything the good doctor has ever learned. Yet the spurious Gift will not be denied. It gnaws at Dr.Thornton's mind, body, challenges his sanity.
An escape from reality, a winter of trial––days, nights of searing agony, a deliverance from the very threshold of death.... A spring of soul searching. Then––a gradual awakening. A physician divorced from medicine, a healer no longer healing, a reluctant prophet, an instrument of fate––unrelenting.
An English butler plays an enigmatic role in Peter's gradual return to life. In no small measure our stumbling hero recovers, thanks to the ministrations of the beautiful Cathy Mondellay who proves as sensuous as she is sagacious. Peter Thornton learns to bend with the wind, to navigate uncharted waters of human consciousness. There follows a turbulent tide of events on an international scale in which he seems little more than a hapless pawn. Yet a singular, transcendent pawn that is instrumental in bringing about, what some claim is the long awaited, inevitable Second Coming.
