An author is led to a deserted seashore where he struggles to get onto paper the story of his youth, of a fourteen-year-old who flees the ravages of abuse by his mindsick father and finds refuge in the "Scartown" family of Blind Ben See's Carnival of Wonders. In a pattern of Christ's passion, he begins a journey through his soul's darkness. He faces into scars of his adolescence, challenging him to open his wounds without succumbing to self-destruction or self-pity - and arrives at "something like forgiveness." In the process he makes his heart a container for transforming suffering into joy, escorting the reader along a similar path.
