Synopsis

Disgraced poet Ted Wallace is summoned to his friends Lord and Lady Logan's country manor, Swafford Hall, to investigate a series of unexplained miracle healings. Ted tracks down the perpetrator of the phenomena, fifteen year old David Logan, whose parents believe has healing hands. Unaware that David is using some rather unorthodox methods, the Logans are set on sharing their son’s gift with the world. Ted sets out to debunk the miracles and save a young man from a lifetime of embarrassment.
