The feathery white ribbons in the sky above Adams County, Pennsylvania, were nothing unusual-just the common vapor trail evidence of high-flying jet aircraft. But for the men on the ground below they were a puzzlement.

Our hero Booth is declared Missing In Action. Years later when Rose Booth, the family matriarch, learns that her son may not have been a casualty of the war as previously believed, she enlists a prominent history professor and his protégé to uncover the truth. They trace the path of our hero as he faces the unfamiliar challenges of life and times from an era in American history long past.In this carefully researched historical novel with a cosmic twist, the author recounts the compassionate struggle to weave together the threads of a lost airman's life and bring solace to a grief-stricken mother. 88,000 Words, 73 Chapters, 346 Pages
