And so far, there is no divine mystery she hasn''t solved. But when small-town schoolteacher Doug Blackwell seeks her help with a series of bizarre occurrences the townspeople believe to be sent by God, Katherine and her partner Ben come to learn that sometimes miracles can be treacherous, and the line between faith and superstition is dangerously thin.

For the first time in her professional career, Katherine can''t explain these phenomena with science. The townspeople believe an enigmatic child named Loren McConnell has brought God''s wrath to their doorstep, but what they see as a harbinger of evil, Katherine sees as a lost child needing her help.
