How far would you go to save someone you love?
Sam Dalton is at the end of his rope. His daughter, Jessica, lies dying in a hospital bed from a mysterious disease that has her doctors completely baffled. Without being able to identify the disease or its cause, they are unable to devise a cure and can offer Sam little hope. All he is left to do is sit there and watch his little girl wither away, day after day.
Despair has him wrapped tightly in its bony grip when an encounter with an empty-eyed vagrant he dubs the Preacher gives Sam the opportunity he has been searching for, a chance to bring his precious daughter back from the brink of death. He doesn't know who the Preacher is, or if the Preacher is even human, but Sam doesn't care. All he can see is the proverbial light at the end of the tunnel.
If he's strong enough to do what needs to be done.
How far would you go to save someone you love? Sam Dalton is about to find out.

"[A] nasty little chiller that slices through the squeamish with surgical precision." (SFCrowsnest.net)
I love Joseph Nassise, he has quickly become a favorite author. But Veronica Gigure's reading of this book made it difficult to listen to. She over pronounced every word and made it sound as if she were reading rather than talking.
Not sure. I don't generally do that, as I remember stories too well. If I wait long enough, yes.
I have not heard Veronica Giguere before but felt she did a very nice job of creating characters with changes in her voice as she read.
This kept me engaged and listening but suspected the ending before it was reached, just did not quite know how it would unfold.
It's good if you want something to entertain you on a short trip in the car.
I think the narrator should have been a male.
At first I wanted to say no but then it would be kinda cool to have a series of shorts that tied
"disappointing for the price"
excellent story but too short and this not reflected in the price.
not clear it was a very short story
