In the Irish Midlands in 1859, an English nurse, is sent to a tiny village to observe what some are claiming is a medical anomaly or a religious miracle; a young girl said to have survived without food for months. Tourists have flocked to the cabin of 11-year-old Anna O'Donnell, and a journalist has arrived to cover the sensation. The Wonder is a tale of two strangers who transform each other's lives, a psychological thriller, and a story of love pitted against evil.
