Overview

Motherless takes the reader on a riveting behind-the-scenes journey around the globe to the boardrooms and laboratories where the architects of The Life Sciences Revolution are preparing Mankind's Final Solution... and into the confessionals and chanceries where the Church's response is being challenged.

Father John Sweeney, pastor of a small Catholic parish on Philadelphia's storied Main Line, is drawn into an apocalyptic vortex through the lives of parishioners Maggie Kealey, Michael Burns and Joe Delgado. Without warning they are ushered through the back door of the Revolution where they discover human embryos being created in laboratories and frozen in cryogenic freezers for a global black market. It is, however, when the Revolution's ultimate destination is revealed to one of the three that Father Sweeney is faced with his greatest test as a pastor - guiding souls to accountability to truth even in the face of potentially deadly consequences.

Motherless is another spellbinding narrative that explores the ever more slippery slope of Man's technology and its existential threat to family and church. As in Fatherless, Gail's wonderful storytelling, scintillating dialogue and richly interwoven sub plots will leave readers breathless and hungry for more.

Editorial Reviews

Endorsement - Robert P. George
“Fiction has long served as a powerful medium for social criticism and for issuing warnings rooted in a profound concern for fundamental justice and moral truth. Are contemporary fiction writers up to the task? In Motherless, Brian J. Gail proves that he certainly is.”
Endorsement - Dr. Theresa Deisher
“...Brian J. Gail's Motherless depicts the true essence of human embryonic stem cell experimentation and ingeniously intertwines science with a fiction thriller to expose it. Embryonic stem cell research is not about treating our loved ones who suffer from disease. It is ultimately about human cloning. The sheer boldness of Motherless frightens me…”
Endorsement - Eduardo Verástegui
“Motherless is truly a magnificent work of art clearly written to combat today’s moral decline...I can only hope our generation reads it.”
E - Lila Rose
“Brian J. Gail has masterfully and with startling accuracy told the story of our culture. Motherless is both heartbreaking and hilarious, but most of all it powerfully exposes the cultural and spiritual battles my generation faces today...I couldn’t put it down.”
Endorsement - The Most Reverend Charles J. Chaput, OFM Cap.
“...Motherless is alive with vivid characters, wonderful dialogue and real issues. From start to finish you can't put it down…”

Meet the Author

Brian J. Gail was a schoolboy baseball phenom recruited by Division One universities and scouted by Major League baseball teams; he suffered a disabling shoulder injury early in his college career and was sent to the Philadelphia Phillies team doctor whose efforts to help him regain his exceptional pitching velocity were unsuccessful.

Fueled by a white hot competitive fire and magnetic rhetorical gifts, he rocketed to the top of the Madison Avenue advertising world in his mid 30’s only to see his career derailed by a moral business dilemma and a direct challenge to his Catholic faith. A gifted entrepreneur and CEO, he provided strategic marketing counsel to elite Fortune 500 corporations and directed a variety of nonprofit boards focused on assisting the underprivileged in Philadelphia.

Today, Brian J. Gail is a critically acclaimed author, a Knight of the Immaculate, a co-founder of three Catholic classical academies, a patent holder, and a highly sought after speaker on matters of faith and family.

Brian’s remarkable novel Fatherless is already in its 5th printing. Fatherless has become a powerful tool for catechesis. The interest and demand for this unique novel has now spread both across America and abroad.

Brian married his high school sweetheart, Joan Mary Kain, and they were blessed with seven children including two sets of identical twins and one set of “Irish twins.” Brian has touched many lives with his optimism, humor, and unwavering faith in Our Lady and the truths of the Catholic Church.
