Fabre D'Olivet stands at his gravesite. Ferrier remembers Fabre's strange encounter with the unforgettable Chrisna, Le Revolution and the influence of libertines Sigault and his sister Amelie until the destinies of the future healer and emperor collide in 1800 when Napoleon seizes power and Fabre criticizes him. After a bizarre assassination attempt Napoleon imprisons him. Before imprisonment Fabre has met his 'muse', the beautiful and mysterious Julie Marcel. Napoleon has married his muse... the older, cold-hearted and envious Josephine, 'The only muse in France'. After conquering most esoteric sciences and languages including the extinct ancient Hebrew, Fabre pens among many other unique works his masterpiece The Hebraic Tongue Restored and The True Translation of Genesis. But, to get published in 1811 he has to confront his old nemesis, Napoleon. He must prove the miraculous nature of his discovery of the essence of sound and language. He convinces a congenital deaf-mute's mother to let him try to heal him and after four days is successful! A miracle! Napoleon has him arrested after he cures another and the conflict between the healer and the emperor resumes. 206 Pages. Second, Revised Edition.
