Summary
A story about an Edwardian patriarch Horatio Fisk, a cold, obnoxious man who doesn't seem to grieve for his son, who was killed in the Boer war. This has driven a wedge between him and his son Henslowe Fisk when Henslowe makes his dutiful weekly visits to his father. Horatio seems to have little time or affection for his son. A visit by both to a seance with an eccentric Indian proves to be the beginning of a journey that opens the old man's heart
