Synopses & Reviews
In Boston, a young woman finds herself pregnant--even though she is still a virgin.
In Ireland, another young woman discovers she is in the same impossible condition.
And in cities all around the world, medical authorities are overwhelmed by epidemics, droughts, famines, floods, and worse. It all feels like a sign that something awful is coming.
Anne Fitzgerald, a former nun turned private investigator, is hired by the Archdiocese of Boston to investigate the immaculate conceptions. Even as she comes to care about and trust the young women, she realizes that both are in great danger. Terrifying forces of light and darkness are gathering. Stepping into uncharted territory where the unknown is just the beginning, Anne must discover the truth--to save the young women, to save herself, and to protect the future of all mankind.
Former nun and private detective Anne Fitzgerald investigates the mysterious "virginal pregnancies" of two young women, one in Rhode Island and the other in Ireland. Only the Pope knows that one of the women will give birth to the Messiah, and the other the child of Satan. Anne searches for the truth to save the women, and possibly herself.
