Summary
William Bloom, is a young man who never really knew his now dying father, Edward, outside of the tall tales his dad told him while growing up. During Edward's last days William and his wife Josephine hold a bedside vigil next to the old man as he recollects elaborate memories of his youth. Still doubting the legends and folklore, William makes a journey to meet a mysterious woman from whom Edward had bought property
