Publisher's Summary

In the autumn of 1684, two children find a dead man in a field.

Within minutes, however, the dead man starts coming back to life. As if the transition isn't enough of an agonizing process, he also finds that he shares an empathic connection to the people and world around him.

Rather than running in terror, 11-year-old Joanna Spijker expresses an odd fascination with the newly revived young man, even bringing him home and giving him a new name: Vincent.

As years go by, Vincent grows content with his new name and life with the Spijker family.

But time proves to be his greatest enemy, when it becomes increasingly more impossible to ignore that Vincent is a man who never ages...or dies.

And that is a terrible gift to have during a time of Connecticut's witch hunt....

    "A wonderful vignette."

    While the performer struggles to maintain his tone in a few places, the story is well crafted and great for a bit of light reading. I'm looking forward to Washburn's next literary work.
