A tale that combines contemporary, speculative fiction with an ambiguous spirituality.  The story explores relationships between lovers, friends, families, and what Powers of Good ther may be.

John Sloan is a Marine Corps veteran with a life-long secret that is haunting him .  He is a conduit to a healing light that draws him to people on the brink of emotional disintegration, people who are then healed and helped by this light.  His blue-collar world is shattered when he finds that his connection to this anonymous portal has vanished.  His is alone, seemingly beyond aid, and in deperate need of a Helping himself.

The book tracks the intersecting lives of John and two other Helpers.  His lifelong friend Dusty Hakalla is a mixed-blood Ojibwe, with a secret of his own.  His power to Help is remarkable, but was once destructively misused.  A career Marine, his scarred childhood and momentary abuse of power have left him jaded and bereft.  Deena Morrison, also a Helper, is John's girlfriend.  Adopted as an infant, she flees John to find her birth-mother, while carrying her own secret.  Another character shadows their lives as narrator, Nan'b'oozoo, the trickser god of Ojibwe legend--at times sarcastic and petulant, at others insightful and humorous.

The novel travels from the gritty Lake Superior port-cities and Indian Reservations of northern Wisconsin to the Jewish neighborhoods of North Miami Beach, Florida--from Parris Island to the war zones of Kuwait and Afghanistan.
