Bender, a Fallen One, finds himself in love with a mortal, Georgeanne Quade, and produces a son named Griffin. All three have an extraordinary power: bending others to their will and altering the weather. But for Griffin, this power is a curse. When he falls in love with Bithia Sibbings, he tries hard to become a better person, and ignore his often spontaneous urge to use the 'gift'.
