Sydney Henderson is a truly great man. As a young man, Sydney, believing he has accidentally killed a friend, makes a pact with God, promising never to harm another if the boy's life is spared.
In the years that follow, the almost pathologically gentle Sydney holds true to his promise - at terrible cost to himself and his family.
Stunningly beautiful and haunting, scenes from this magisterial novel will remain etched in the mind forever.
