Father Jake Austin's life is turned upside down by three intersecting plots that focus on the relationship between miracles and science, the clash of facts and faith, and the inexplicable production of unexpected miracles from disastrous events.
As a priest, he counsels a young couple whose baby is in a coma but wonders whether he is dealing with an accident or child abuse.
When his sister is hospitalized with leukemia, he assumes the role of caregiver for her child, as well as her bone marrow donor.
Newspaper reports of miracles at a nearby parish draw Jake to St. Wenceslaus Church. When he arrives, he witnesses a statue weep blood, and his Bishop assigns the investigation to him.
With each challenge, his faith is tested. One thing is for certain, Jake is not your conventional Catholic priest.
