For forty years, the Center for Restoration has tirelessly worked to save the outcasts of violently repressive Western religions and help the victims of patriarchal culture. But now, a rising tide of violent intolerance and hate threatens the very existence of this life-saving humanist institution.
Book One of RESTORATION, set in modern-day America, opens with the story of twenty-year old Chris Brenner, a gay man desperate to escape from his ultra-religious parents and their efforts to 'torture him straight', through religious conversion therapy. Escaping to the Center in San Francisco, Chris meets and befriends fellow initiates George and Mary — and falls head over heels in love with Tom Griffin, a charismatic Priest at the San Francisco Center for Restoration.
The RESTORATION saga presents the explosive story of Americans caught up in the on-going culture war between the humanist principles of the Enlightenment that empower America's Constitution on one side, and the dark intertwined forces of Christofascism and racism on the other.
