Summary, etc.:
When Gretchen Tilbury claims that her daughter is the result of a virgin birth, Jean Swinney, a feature writer on a local paper, sets out to prove whether Gretchen is a miracle or a fraud-an investigation that sends dark ripples across all their lives with unimaginable consequences. An astonishing, keenly observed story of an ordinary British woman in the 1950s whos dutiful life takes a wholly unexpected turn into a struggle between prpriety and passon.
