The Torch Bearers: A Novel
This tells of surgeon-aristocrat Mayoso Marti, an unconventional, contradictory man of enormous magnetism and courage whose intense loyalties to persona and principle draw him into a life of double jeopardy. One is a world of established wealth and power the other is one of hunger and adversity. Through Mayosoʼs burning commitment to the value of the individual human life, these opposite worlds are interlocked as the novel moves from a Connecticut mansion to a hospital faced with scandal, to a cathedral confessional, to the bullet-spattered avenidas of Caracas, to an American courtroom shocked into silence. Itʼs an emotional sage of abortion versus the Catholic faith.
