Caryssa climbs the corporate ladder of Silicon Valley, driven by power and money. The tech-hub capital is in the palm of her hands, until she brings a child into the world and nothing is about herself anymore. She sees the techno-crazed connection to modern society becoming like that dystopian sci-fi played out in the movies.
Surrounded by parents turning inward to truth and empathy, each are faced with thorny moral choices while attempting to positively impact lives. They find themselves trying to balance out the reality and spiritual costs of American politics. For Parisian artist Anna, this means opening her heart to the boy who fatally struck her daughter in a skateboarding accident.
Echoed along the way is a startling awareness of a harsh culture of irrelevant revenge---ours--- mindlessly threatening to squander all that is dear to us. Behind the cultural culprits lurk the politicians, business and religious leaders wearing deceiving character masks of noble cause.
This culture shock sends the parents on a stirring of their collective conscience, bringing them to understand the ache of late America. It motivates them to take affirmative action for the greater good and secure a better future for all that matters most---especially their children.
And how might a baffling bloody dove found behind a Sausalito art gallery possibly be symbolic of secret society behind a spread of tyranny, away from world peace?

Most Helpful Customer Reviews
This book is very extensive in describing its vision, which starts off by focusing on the paradigm shift that adults experience when going from a profession-centered life to a child-centered one. The transition is not an easy one and not one that is easily accepted or welcomed by adults today. But once it's completed, these adults don't look back and are satisfied with looking after and protecting their kin. The most important aspect of the storyline in this book is the crude realization of the adult generation that this isn't the most suitable world for their children to grow up in. They make decisions, and decide to act and work towards an ideal world for their children to be raised in. The book, from this point onwards, has the most amazing and unforeseen twists and turns, making it a very enthralling read. It keeps you gripped to the edge of your seat, unable to put down the book. The characters, especially Caryssa, are very well described and have strong personality traits, and are easily decipherable. The descriptions in the story of scenes are very well written and make picturing the scenes really easy. This book is one of a kind with a storyline like no other and is very unique in its goal. This is a must-read for every fiction and action lover. Don't miss out on this one!
