"This coming-of-age story unfolds with gritty self-assurance that is associated with skilled authorship. Readers feel very much immersed with Peter's life and dilemmas. The mystery of what lies ahead is intriguing and profound." -SDW/EG Manuscript Reviewer
On the coast of Maine in the 1800s, thirteen-year-old Peter Poppin discovers a mysterious box while searching the beach for driftwood. Just as he tucks it away, he suffers a terrible accident. His eye is badly injured. The doctor is unable to restore his sight. An aspiring wood-carver, he can't succeed without his vision. His dreams crumble.
A schoolyard bully picks a fight with Peter because he wears an eye patch. A great eagle swoops down and defends him. His classmate, an Abamela Indian, tells Peter his clan's Shaman is a healer and could help. His parents refuse the idea, but he and his best friend, Marian, make the journey.
What happens in the healing? What gift does Peter receive? What role does the mysterious box have?
