The first novel by Newbery Award-winning author Nancy Willard: A stunning story of magic and miracles, and a testament to the enduring power of faith and love

Ben and Willie Harkissian are twin brothers (think Cain and Abel, Jacob and Esau) growing up in Ann Arbor, Michigan, on the eve of World War II. A baseball launched into the October sky sets in motion a series of events that transforms many lives. Ben leaves for the front and faces death-figuratively as well as literally. Left behind is Clare Bishop, who has been paralyzed from the waist down. But in exchange she receives some very special gifts. She can see the future, be at one with animals, and chat with Death. Willie Harkissian remains in Michigan as well, though his relationship with his brother will never be the same.

A love story interrupted by war, this is also a novel about discovering the ordinary in the extraordinary and finding the miraculous in everyday life.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"[A] luminous first novel." -Anne Tyler

"Moves freely between the mundane and the metaphysical . . . Willard creates pictures of daily life so precisely observed that they leave after-images in the reader's mind." -The New York Times

"Written with spirit and in a luminous prose that is a pleasure to read . . . Willard's technical virtuosity is like an array of pitches. And in this book, she throws a perfect game." -The Houston Post
