Pilotville, Louisiana, 1927, isolated outpost on the Mississippi. Reverend Hale Poser, a stranger come looking for his roots. Hannah Lamont, new baby daughter to James and Rosa, a breech birth if not for the stranger's touch upon her mother's belly. She's her parents' sweet joy until, suddenly, she vanishes. Who but this stranger could have done this terrible thing? Who but this man of miracles could see that it's undone? In the swamp beyond the tupelo and cypress a lingering evil sleeps no longer. It will rain down on Pilotville; it will rise up like a river, and nothing but a miracle can stop this awful flood.
