The Web of Darkness and Light is the second in Elizabeth Upton’s John Callahan series.
The demons never tire. They cling to John Callahan and, like the banshees of Irish legend, they fill his heart with wails of despair. No matter how he tries to live an exemplary life, the former IRA killer is haunted by memories of the horrors he has suffered—and those he has inflicted in return. Not the monastic life, not the vows of priesthood, not the move from Ireland to New York City have brought him peace.
The Mystic Swords of Love and Innocence explores the journey of our lives from the innocence of birth to the struggles that can keep us from happiness and fulfillment. Although wise elders or others may help us, ultimately, we are each responsible for taking our lives into our own hands and fulfilling our own destiny.
Follow this incredible life journey as author Elizabeth Upton teaches us to embrace the mystery and trust in the love that surrounds us.
