Brian J. Gail has written another heart-pounding page turner of a novel for Catholics who are straining to hear their Church’s voice in what Pope John Paul II called “the final confrontation between the Church and the anti-Church, the Gospel and the anti-Gospel.” Motherless takes the reader on a riveting behind-the-scenes journey around the globe to the boardrooms and laboratories where the architects of The Life Sciences Revolution are preparing Mankind’s Final Solution… and into the confessionals and chanceries where the Church’s response is being challenged.
Father John Sweeney, pastor of a small Catholic parish on Philadelphia’s storied Main Line, is drawn into an apocalyptic vortex through the lives of parishioners Maggie Kealey, Michael Burns and Joe Delgado. Without warning they are ushered through the back door of the Revolution where they discover human embryos being created in laboratories and frozen in cryogenic freezers for a global black market. It is, however, when the Revolution’s ultimate destination is revealed to one of the three that Fr. Sweeney is faced with his greatest test as a pastor – guiding souls to accountability to truth even in the face of potentially deadly consequences.

Motherless by Brian J. Gail
Tiber River Review: Motherless
I have been reading my whole life and I am 52. I read non-fiction and fiction and your book is definitely the best novel that I have ever read. This was really a huge eye opener. I am a Catholic convert and have always been faithful to the Church’s teachings and enthusiastic about my Catholic faith, however even though I have always believed what the Church taught on contraception, I always kind of felt that the Church should go easy on folks who couldn’t abide by not using it.
Not anymore, as I see what the whole contraception issue really has become. You give the world an inch they take a mile, you give the devil an inch and he will take a 1000 miles. Now I see why the Church doesn’t budge on this issue. I see why God doesn’t budge on this issue. John Paul II was right when he called our culture a culture of death.
Never again will I sit by and allow someone to bad mouth the Pope on the issue of contraception of Catholic Church doctrine, especially when it comes from a priest or another Catholic. From now on I speak up and refute them (with love of course, but refute them nonetheless).
Keep up the terrific work.Keith
