Summary

Lonny is a lifeling. He has the power to heal any living creature and bring it back from the dead. But he pays a price for this gift - by lengthening the creature’s life, he shortens his own. So Lonny has to be careful, has to stay hidden in the forest. Because if people knew what he could do, Lonny would be left with no life at all....

A brilliant story from the author of The Middler about family, secrets and a terrible power.

Loved it!

I listened to this with my husband, son (9) and daughter (12) we all have very different taste in books, but we all loved this book! We all wanted to listen all the time. We really connected with Lonnie and the curse and dilemma of his gift. Very well read and written.
