Mary Jo Ryan traveled over twenty thousand miles, from Ireland, to Australia, to Savannah, Georgia, in search of love, security, and peace. Instead, she found bigotry, hatred, betrayal, and pain; and the nightmare of a secret which she carried alone, until she met Frances Jackson and Richard Frankel.

Frances was an African-American war widow whose courage saved Mary Jo’s life and whose strong faith inspired her to live above her loneliness.

Richard was a combat pilot and Korean War hero seeking the truth in a world of wartime lies. His search to find his brother, a priest who had disappeared in 1949, revealed a Catholic conspiracy and a cover-up buried in the Pentagon. But it also led him to meet Mary Jo and her two sons — the only real family Richard would ever know. To protect them, Richard’s final mission would forever link Saint Patrick’s parish in Savannah with CIA operations in Cuba, in a countdown to tragedy.

Much more than a mystery, this is the story of a Christian woman’s faith, an embittered soldier’s desperation, and a lonely warrior’s courage. In God’s providential plan, they overcome a web of lies and secrets sins on their shared journey to forgiveness and truth.
