If so, he starts to question his sanity and his abilities as a doctor.
Can a man of science put his faith in the supernatural?
Will his place of birth give up its dark secrets, connecting the events of the present with its violent and tragic past?
Did the war leave him scarred forever? Did his experiences aboard a gruesome hospital ship in the Pacific ocean numb his compassion for others?
The town’s mythical folklore may hold the answers to his questions but Edwin finds it difficult to believe that the supernatural could have a place a in his world of science and medicine until he has an intimate encounter with the centuries old Offling who has the ability to take away his pain at great risk to herself.
