Sylvie Keighley is an ordinary child born in the midst of an extraordinary spiritual battle. She’s in ill-health from the day she’s born. The doctors assure her and her overbearing mother that there is no specific cause for Sylvie’s poor condition. She simply drew the short straw. But, help is at hand. The 1950’s have seen wonderful advances in medical science, and the doctors will be able to manage Sylvie’s asthma and constant infections with effective pharmaceuticals. Nobody pays any attention to Sylvie’s bent in heels or the muscle weakness that causes that strange phenomenon. Nobody, that is, except the angels who have been sent to lead Sylvie to the truth about disease and real health. Their job is not an easy one. They are opposed by forces of darkness and by a society that places more faith in the medical industry than in the LORD. Sylvie must journey through her own pain and, worst still, the pain of her beloved child, Oliver, before she can find the truth.
