When a package from an antiquarian bookshop in Frankfurt, Germany arrives in Dorset, Vermont, the recipient finds that it contains a mysterious note and rare book. Efforts to translate the book result in "The Well That Never Runs Dry", a timeless story full of life lessons for us all. "The Well That Never Runs Dry" is a journey of discovery about the absolute value of love. The story begins with the drowning death of a small child in a rain-swollen river. Left alone to care for the young boy David after the shepherd, Joshua, has gone to resettle the victims of the flood, Elizabeth discovers the drowned child's body and is plagued by age-old questions - Why do the righteous suffer? Why does God take children before their time? And does a man soweth as he reapeth? Elizabeth sleeps and dreams of 'The Well That Never Runs Dry,' which she is called to discover once she awakes. Together with young David and her cousin, Miriam, they go in search of the Well. Enroute, they meet a cast of characters including The Story Teller, The Lamp Lighter, and The Beggar Woman, who each imparts a story and provides clues that lead to the sacred well, where Elizabeth and her companions uncover one of the greatest lessons of all - the power of love.
