"Marlena Oliveira has been given an extraordinary gift. She has been given the power to heal. She can cure paralysis, mental illness, even a broken heart. People with all kinds of ailments come from around the world seeking audiences with her, believing her to be a saint. But her power comes at a price. Marlena can't have friends or go to school. She can't date. She can't even touch anyone. The older she gets, the more trapped she feels." -- From page 2 of cover.
