In the Catholic novel Fatherless, author Brian J. Gail takes dead aim at the pervasive denials and chronic weaknesses that afflict men of every age, but especially men of the post-Pill generation. I think the greatest contribution of Mr. Gail's book is the honest presentation of real-life scenarios of how much damage the Pill has caused men and their relationships with women. No one thinks that the Pill is a man's issue, but Gail shatters that denial with his insightful rendering of the accounts of woe that follow in the train of the poison Pill. All men, not just Christians, need to read this and weep (in repentance) and then get up and make a difference in the world by taking on themselves once again the role of the virtuous man, father and warrior. --Fr. Tom Euteneuer, President, Human Life International
Fatherless is an exciting, compelling and profound fictional account, but much more importantly, it's also an accurate and profound snapshot of the problems in the Church today, in the midst of a society steeped in contraception and abortion, and a cultural disregard for the sanctity of marriage and family life. This book is a must-read for all Catholics yearning for the end of the culture of death. --Judy Brown, President of American Life League
A gripping and deeply moving read that is, at the same time, a hauntingly beautiful exploration of man, God, morality, faith and the Church in our contemporary world. Masterfully done... --Roy Shoeman, Author, Salvation is from the Jews
