Overview

Rosa Pryznyk's harrowing escape from the Great War to America left her knowing that she was ordained for an extraordinary life. She didn't, though, see the aching beauty of it, nor did she see the wretchedness or hardship that would continually dog her fate. But Sam Gentles saw all of Rosa's life completely because he invented her for his novel. And Herb Thedal, the film director of Sam's script, also saw Rosa precisely and with purpose. But can they shape their own chaotic lives with such resolution and comparable acts of faith? Though ambitious in its structure, and unconventional in its plot, Michael Kenyon's novel is rewarding, resourceful story telling.
