The town of Auburn has always been quiet, but not without its own problems. That solitude is replaced by outside attention when a young man named Joshua comes to town. He seems like an average hard-working carpenter whose work is praised around town, that is, until he performs some tasks that would normally be deemed impossible. Joshua becomes an instrument of peace among the squabbling, but well-meaning, religious people in Auburn. And eventually, Joshua's efforts are requested from the highest levels of leadership in the Church.
