Descrição da editora

Available to readers for the first time since its initial publication, this is a wry and moving story by an American master.

The first thing I tell people is, I’m just an ordinary woman. I’m just like you.

Susanna has an incredible gift: she can heal ailments with just the touch of her hand.  People travel from far and wide based on their faith in her abilities. But Susanna’s power only works in certain cases—it’s a semi-miracle. And as she grows into a woman, and tries to build a life of her own, her calling to fix and cure becomes more of a burden than she could ever have imagined. Why is she able to take people’s pain away sometimes, and not others, not when she needs to most of all? With the balm of time, and the wisdom of experience, Susanna must learn to live with the mysterious nature of her miracle.

“Not merely good . . . she is wickedly good.” —John Updike
