Charles Wenmoth is a blacksmith and Methodist lay-preacher in the wildest
reaches of South-West England. It is 1870 and Wenmoth devotes his weekdays
to work and the Sabbath to walking great distances to preach to dwindling
congregations. Charles burns with faith - but it's a faith balanced by his
pleasure in nature and the physical world around him. In his relationship
with Harriet French, a blind girl who maintains her belief despite her
debilitating condition, Wenmoth finds his fragile faith tested in the most
trying of circumstances.
