They say he was kicked out of the seminary because of some dark mystery.  And his own parents didn't want him back.  His father died suddenly and his mother went mad.  And now he is living with his crazy aunt.  But that doesn't stop Davie from wanting to know Stephen.  He's a bit older than Davie but there is something about the boy that fascinates Davie.  When Stephen begins to sculpt stange beings from the clay in the marsh, Davie is sure that Stephen can bring them to life.  Is he just seeing things?  Or is it really happening?  What will happen when Stephen forms a life size golem out of the clay?
