With only a mysterious telegram, improbable email, and antique newspaper as his guides, Jack London Clarke is thrust into an epic, unsuspecting journey of redemption and self-discovery.
Three days before Christmas, Jack issues a stunning ultimatum to his wife following a damaging confrontation over his suspected infidelity. As he prepares to flee his suburban Chicago home, a knock upon the front door delivers a most unlikely character, one who sets Jack’s personal life spinning out of control.
Consumed by entitlement, excess and temptation, Jack has grown ignorant to his own moral decay and hardened heart, which have alienated the three women who love him most. When his family turns up missing, he must face the reality of his ways and the realization that the life he once had—but never knew—may be lost forever.
While searching through a world not known to modern man, he stumbles upon welcoming strangers who reintroduce him to those things most important in life. Only when he confronts the skeletons of his past and empties his soul of the scars of a debauched childhood can he dream of ever seeing his family again.
