This psycho-spiritual novel describes the struggles of two men. Joe is a bold and crass surgeon, who scoffs at anything above or beyond himself and freely indulges his passionate appetites. Adam is a painfully shy and anxious medical researcher, who seeks security in devout religious practice, but finds little relief from his discomfort. These most unlikely of associates come together, with four other individuals, under the watchful eye of David Web, their group therapist. In order to find healing, the patients must tell their stories, and, in so doing, Adam and Joe find a common bond in war-torn Europe and its soul-numbing Holocaust, sixty years before. Both Adam and Joe must confront ghosts from that time, ghosts that now live in them. Adam and Joe struggle together until both are forever changed, hope is renewed and a new spirituality is forged.
