The Proof Combines Mystery and Adventure in a Contemporary Christian Romantic Suspense Novel Set In Tuscany, Italy
Shrouded in mystery, a precious relic known as Il Testamento, or The Proof, circulated among the early Christians for centuries, bringing faith and courage to all who beheld it. Before their deaths, its guardians, the Knights Templar hid it from corrupt religious adversaries where it lay in darkness. Until now.
While engaged in art instruction at UC Santa Barbara, Professor Gabriel Dolcini, bitter and desperate, is invited to exhibit his extraordinary oil paintings in Siena, Italy by Conte Louis Dolcini, the grandfather he has never met. Once there, however, he discovers that Conte Dolcini really wants help in his quest to solve an ancient mystery - finding the location of a lost artifact hidden by his Templar ancestor and Saint Galgano Guidotti, the knight who plunged his sword in the stone on Montisiepi, Italy.
Gabe rejects his grandfather's belief in the existence of God, especially when the elderly man insists the relic is the proof that Jesus lived. However, the love and humility of the wealthy Conte draws Gabe in, and when his grandfather is kidnapped, Gabe must find the relic to obtain his release, propelling him on a divine quest that presses Gabe to make a decision to move toward faith and forgiveness, or remain in bitterness and fear.
Using historical documents dating from biblical times, Gabe works to evade two violent groups, one that seeks to destroy the relic, and the second, a corrupt religious sect that lusts for its power.
Tuscany provides a stunning setting for this tale of adventure and suspense as Gabe is thrust into a dangerous quest. And into his divine destiny.
