When Brother Michael inherits a small legacy, he defies his elders and runs away from the Home, taking with him twelve-year-old Owen. Posing as father and son, they concentrate on discovering the happiness that is so unfamiliar to them both, but as the world closes in on them, Michael moves towards a solution that is as uncompromising as it is inspired by love.From the Back Cover:
