“If you save someone’s life, they belong to you forever.”
Russia might want its territory back. Should New America, the fledgling Christian nation on Siberia’s east coast, pursue a defense treaty with its decadent mother country? Sent to the United States on a fundraising mission for a New American presidential candidate, a young lawyer is faced with a dilemma. A woman whose life as an abortion survivor is endangered by the Fugitive Fetus Law appeals for his help. There’s only one way he can rescue her, and that way will jeopardize his relationship with his New American girlfriend.
Advance through time to the closing decades of the twenty-first century for a story of adventure and intrigue offering food for thought for today.
