Thomas Singer is eleven years old. Soon, on his twelfth birthday, his father will present him with his first shotgun and take him on his first deer hunting trip. Thomas longed to go hunting all his young life, until the day he saw poachers shooting a deer, until the day he meets Emma.
That day, as Thomas watched the wounded deer fall, something magical happened: a mysterious old woman suddenly rushed out from among the trees, laid her hands on the graceful animal, and somehow completely healed it. That day his life changed forever.
With Emma's guidance, Thomas learns to heal and communicate with animals-forcing him to realize he could never kill one. Now his whole world is turned upside down. He loves his father and doesn't want to disappoint him; in his father's eyes, being a man is to go hunting with men. But his birthday is coming fast, and soon he will have to choose.
In the tradition of Where the Red Fern Grows and Old Yeller, The Healer of Harrow Point is a classic coming-of-age story in which a young boy learns the beauty of life, the folly of violence, and the secrets of true friendship.
