Riley Keep, former missionary, now a drunk, is begging on the streets and desperate to forget a past he lost in one far-flung act of wickedness. Then he hears the rumors. Miracles are happening in the picture postcard village of Dublin, Maine.

Riley isn't the only Pilgrim searching for deliverance. There's the old woman fleeing a horrific monster, the lonely wife tempted by forbidden desire, the impoverished lobsterman lured by tainted wealth, the young girl weighing life and death decisions, and the small town cop with a murder on his hands. But only Riley keep will learn if it's true what people say: sometimes The Cure is much worse than the disease.

"An involving, suspenseful take on God's transforming grace; it tackles a serious issue while providing an absorbing story." (Library Journal)

"Rich with local dialect and scenery... Dickson's approach is thought-provoking, and his prose beautifully evokes the taciturn spirit of the Mariners who people this novel... Full of interesting ideas and well-developed characters." (Publishers Weekly)
