Sophie Hawkins has a unique gift.
Born illegitimately in a poor fishing village in the 1950s, Sophie is now set to be consecrated the first woman Anglican bishop in Newfoundland’s Eastern Diocese. Sophie’s mother, Lety, died when Sophie was too young to remember her. As a result, the little girl was left to be raised by a cruel grandmother, an abusive minister, and the sadistic overseers of a prison-like orphanage. Under the pressures of a difficult adolescence, her psychic talents emerge not as a blessing but a curse that leads to a breakdown.
Sophie’s survival depends on learning to control her abilities and to confront other traumatic events from her childhood. She turns to psychiatrist Griffon Fairbourne who helps her make sense of her powers and inspires her to enter the priesthood. Along with classmate Noah Lodge, Sophie is sent to remote western Newfoundland as a hospital chaplain where her gift reemerges when she senses imminent danger posed by recent activity on the hospital’s fourth floor that decades earlier housed an insane asylum.
Lety’s Gift is a mystery, a love story, and above all, a tale of triumph.
