Publisher's Summary

It is the summer after the Big War and, while most veterans are racing back to setup housekeeping, Jerry Keenan finds himself unattached, unable to settle down, and suffering nightmares from his wartime experiences.

Enter Andrea King, an 18-year-old war widow. Finding her irresistible, Keenan embarks on a love affair so passionate that it re-awakens him to life and to God. Then, just when life looks rosiest, Andrea disappears.

In searching for her, he uncovers her miserable past (and her real name, Maggie Ward) as an abused child and an abused wife. When he finally locates her, his quest focuses on winning the beautiful Maggie as his wife.

    "Quintessential Mystery cum History Lesson"

    During this expansive mystery you will be immersed in post WWII history that is so specific and will feel so real it will be as if you are living the tale. Classically Irish American (read Mid-Western) the dialogue is clever and engaging and, at times, uncomfortable. While transported back 60 years you will traverse United States geography and a range of humanity from admirable to obscene. A delightful book that is skillfully dramatized with very talented actors.

    "A love story filled with mystery."

    If I write what I am thinking, it would rob the reader of the opportunity to embark upon a journey filled with twists and turns. Believe me, it is a trip you will want to take.

    "Not my favorite"
    This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

    I am at a loss. I could not think of a single person I know who would enjoy it---


    Would you ever listen to anything by Andrew M. Greeley again?

    I am a big Greeley fan but this book was off the mark for me


    How could the performance have been better?

    The performance was okay --the story was off his normal genius
