An Ordinary man, with 

extraordinary heart

Mateo is a gunner on a B-24 shot down deep in German territory. He parachutes free, but snags on a high limb. Far below, a Nazi is too intent on his pursuit of a young woman to notice. Mateo can remain silent and unseen, but when the ambush happens he cuts himself down and runs to save her.


Her name is Anna.


From the skies over Germany to the brutal gridiron of 1940s professional football, Mateo holds true to his heart as the world burns around him. Greed and betrayal cast his own blood as the enemy. History rises to haunt his dreams. Through it all, his faith and love survive. But is it enough?



Gordon is a rebellious Athens, Georgia townie, a rock guitarist and a brilliant inventor. When his lifelong love, Caroline, moves back to town and they briefly reconnect, Gordon's world is literally turned upside down. 


As he struggles with this development, Gordon is also forced to defend the people and things he loves from a powerful array of foes. Caroline flirts with rekindling their relationship, while David, her fiancée and the heir to a multinational corporation, schemes to steal Gordon’s most valuable invention.


It's not until Gordon learns the secret of his unique ancestry that he begins to understand the strange direction that his life has taken.
