A story within a story in which a historian discovers a manuscript in an old trunk which proves to be the memoirs of Charles O'Brien, an itinerant healer in Ireland in the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries, in which he tells of his influence on some of the great writers of the time, and explains how his life changed at the age of forty when he fell in love with, and was rejected by, a beautiful, young Englishwoman.
