The novel is a bold walk through the many societal and spiritual battles raging during the years that the country fought to establish both its identity as a nation and its identity under God.

Redemption: Angel Ascending
This is the story of David Michael Sonneman and an ancient cross forged of gold that weaves its way through the ages and the heritage of two long-standing families that date back to the colonial foundations of both America and the Caribbean islands of the once formidable Spanish Empire.
This epic saga is the story of that man and the gift of his golden cross as told through the unlikely lens of a traditional middle-class man of Irish-American descent, Mr. Ronan James Cassidy.
While the lives of both men intersect for the unlikeliest of reasons, they are both on a journey in search of their own redemption for varying reasons. Mr. Sonneman and his sister, Nadie are both the product of neglect and abuse brought about by unfortunate circumstances and centuries-old traditions of the deeply European rooted elite caste of American society.
As both Mr. Cassidy and Mr. Sonneman discover the dirty secrets of David’s past and the untold wealth tied to his ancient cross of gold, a plan emerges that was formed long ago by God to return His two once lost children to His graces and levy judgment upon those responsible for the degenerate care of David and his ancestors leading into the American social and financial upheaval of our era.
This is the song of both men’s long-sought redemption and the return to grace of those who bore the legacy of the golden cross over the centuries that corresponded to the rise of the west.
For it is through the emergence of the faith of these two men alone that both manage to persevere through the far different but trying challenges of their life. “Return to me” and “My peace be with you” are the watchwords offered and answered by these two men.
