When Jake Darrow comes to Coventry, Montana peddling his curative to a rapt crowd, it is up to Brenna McAuley to denounce him as the fraud she believes he is. As the town's pharmacist she is the one the townspeople turn to for all their medical problems. Brenna knows Jake is playing on people's faith and it angers her. But the man behind the showman is an attractive, seductive man with a secret-- and a limp he tries to hide. Jake's secret is the man he loves like a father. Cosmos Clarion is the namesake of the curative Jake sells-- and he's dying of consumption. Cosmos believes his fate lies in Coventry and refuses to leave. Jake will do anything to help Cosmos get better-- including appealing to the rigid Brenna for help. Cosmos believes Brenna practices the old magic known as brauche and that she can help him. But Brenna's heart holds a painful memory of her failure during her only attempt at the healing art. She doesn't believe she has the magic in her to help Cosmos. As Cosmos' health fails, Brenna is torn between science and faith. She tries to keep from losing her heart to Jake because she knows he will leave Coventry. Jake thinks he has nothing to offer Brenna because he is just a traveling salesman with a crippled leg that destroyed his dream of playing baseball. But he is driven by a need greater than lust to be with her. As the phases of the moon change, Brenna and Jake discover that the miracle of love can cure even the deepest pain.
