Published: 2012

Jack London Clarke has just issued a stunning ultimatum to his wife. Following a damaging confrontation over his suspected infidelity, he prepares to flee his suburban Chicago estate when a knock upon the front door delivers a most unlikely character, who sends Jack's personal life spinning out of control.

Consumed by a life of entitlement, excess and temptation, Jack has grown ignorant to his own moral decay and his hardened heart has pushed the three women who love him most to the brink. When his family turns up missing, he is forced to face the reality of his ways, and the realization that the life he once had, but never knew, may be lost forever.

With a rejuvenated thirst for his family's forgiveness and with only a mysterious telegram, improbable email, and antique newspaper as his guides, Jack is thrust into an epic, unsuspecting journey of redemption and self-discovery. Searching in a culture long past, he stumbles upon a group of welcoming strangers who reintroduce him to those things in life which are most important. 

Only when Jack confronts the skeletons of his own past and empties his soul of the scars of a debauched childhood can he hope of ever seeing his family again.
