A harried career woman is forced to pull her car into a peaceful veterans' cemetery when she has mechanical trouble. After calling for help, she decides to leave the hot car and sit on a bench beneath a shade tree overlooking the neat rows of crosses. As she waits impatiently, fiddling with her PDA and laptop computer, she hardly notices an elderly woman who comes from nowhere to sit beside her.
The old woman, ignoring the businesswoman's lack of interest, proceeds to tell herwithout even asking if she wants to hear itwhat turns out to be an amazing story about one of the people buried nearby.
Mysteriously, a second storyteller, in the form of an elderly gentleman, appears and reveals the inspiring ending to the old woman's tale.
Now captivated by the story, the woman receives a final revelation when a young soldier appears. This third storyteller shows the busy executive that her stop at the soldiers' cemetery that day and her encounter with the three "angels" are no mere coincidences.
The mystery of how these people and their fates are intertwined will offer hope for those who are hurting or who have loved ones of their own fighting a distant war. The story is a salute to veterans everywhere and the sacrifices they make for their country. It is a story for those who are left behind and the sacrifices they make in wartime as well. This theme resonates strongly with today's world situation. But this is primarily the story of parallel journeys derailed by war that are put back on course thanks to family, friends, and faith.
