 Our Description


Motherless by Brian J. Gail

Brian J. Gail has written another heart pounding, page turner of a novel for Catholics who are straining to hear their Church's voice in what Pope John Paul II called "the final confrontation between the Church and the anti-Church, the Gospel and the anti-Gospel." Motherless takes the reader on a riveting behind-the-scenes journey around the globe to the boardrooms and laboratories where the architects of The Life Sciences Revolution are preparing Mankind's Final Solution... and into the confessionals and chanceries where the Church's response is being challenged.

Father John Sweeney, pastor of a small Catholic parish on Philadelphia's storied Main Line, is drawn into an apocalyptic vortex through the lives of parishioners Maggie Kealey, Michael Burns and Joe Delgado. Without warning they are ushered through the back door of the Revolution where they discover human embryos being created in laboratories and frozen in cryogenic freezers for a global black market. It is, however, when the Revolution's ultimate destination is revealed to one of the three that Fr. Sweeney is faced with his greatest test as a pastor - guiding a soul to the Christian accountability to truth even in the face of potentially deadly consequences.
In Motherless, best selling Catholic author Brian J. Gail has created another spellbinding narrative that explores the ever more slippery slope of Man's technology and its existential threat to family and church. As in Fatherless, Gail's transcendent storytelling, scintillating dialogue and richly interwoven sub plots will leave readers breathless and hungry for more.
Brian J. Gail is a former college and semi-pro athlete; Madison Avenue ad-man; and Fortune 500 senior executive, entrepreneur, and CEO. He is currently an educator and author. Mr. Gail has served on numerous civic boards in his hometown of Philadelphia, including the National Adoption Center, the William Booth Society, St. Charles Borromeo Seminary, and the Regina Academies. He is a husband, father of seven, and grandfather of five.

This item received 5 stars overall. A Catholic novel of intrigue and suspense

Brian J. Gail's novel Motherless, sequel to Fatherless, is a compelling treatment of business-driven advances in medical science.

Set in the present day, this novel is scary--because all of this could happen. I am left wondering exactly how much of this is happening; it's clear that some of it definitely is.

Building on the story from the first book in what is planned to be a trilogy, Motherless picks up several years after FatherlessFull Review...

This item received 5 stars overall. An amazing fictionalized account of the dangers of biotech and its link to the culture of death

What an amazing read!  Motherless, by layman Brian J. Gail, is a must-read for all Catholic adults who want to understand the Church's teachings on all bioethical issues:  contraception, abortions, euthanasia, IVF, human cloning.  All of these issues are brought to light in this fictionalized account of a priest, his close friends, and his parish.  
Based in a parish in Philadelphia, this book details the ups and downs of long time parishioners who are in the prime of their careers; all of the characters must choose between following Church teaching on bioethical issues or continuing to climb their respective career ladders.  For instance, Michael Burns is the owner of an amazingly successful  advertising agency that may be bought-up by a conglomerate, one of whose prominent clients is "Protected Parenthood", a proverbial Faustian deal.  His longtime friend, Joe Delgado, gets promoted to CFO of a biotech c Full Review...
