Emerging from an alcohol-poisoned sleep that should have left her dead on the streets of Toronto, Ana Markovic slowly began to remember the dream that came to her while she was unconscious.
Ana hadn’t always been homeless. Once, she had a home and a family. And then there was war and all that she knew burnt to the ground. Ana came to Canada with her husband as a refugee of the former Yugoslavia and fell into a depression that led her into a self-destructive, alcoholic spiral. Eventually, she abandoned her husband and young child to live on the streets in a perpetual state of self-hate.
But God was not about to let Ana fall to eternal perdition without a fight. While she lay passed out, St. Michael the Archangel, appeared before Ana to offer her a final chance to redeem her soul and accept her worth in the eyes of God.
This story lays bare the struggle for salvation as it travels through the shattered life of one lost soul and beyond to the Garden of Eden, to the life of the Lord Jesus Christ, to the redemption
God’s love offers every human being.
Author David Murdoch was born in Toronto, Canada and graduated from Queen’s University in Kingston. David converted to Catholicism after having been raised as a Protestant. Ana Markovic was written as a means of sharing the gifts God has given him, and doing something with God’s grace
This book has a depth of character and meaning rarely seen in literature todayby EdmondDantes
July 04, 2009: There is a latent beauty that stretches from the mean dirty streets of Toronto to the wondrous warm lap of God. If you will go there…then you may, but the choice to actually accept the challenge and go there is seldom taken. Philosophy, reality, anthropology and sociology are all wrapped together in this delightful and oh so meaningful novel. The reading of it gives anyone who takes that pleasurable time a feeling of satisfaction and comforting bliss. Wonderful.
