"A compelling saga of an unlikely friendship threaded together by redemption and grace"
The setting is a remote mid-nineteenth-century town in England and its grand cathedral. The cathedral Dean, Adam Ayscough, holds a deep love for his parishioners and townspeople, but he is held captive by an irrational shyness and intimidating manner. The Dean and Isaac Peabody, an obscure watchmaker who does not think he or God have anything in common, strike up an unlikely friendship. This leads to an unusual spiritual awakening that touches the entire community.
A richly imaginative and inspiring story with appealing and unique characters, this novel is a favorite of Goudge's fans.
