Restoration Christian fundamentalists have launched a modern crusade in America more than two decades after 9/11. Two unlikely soul mates from widely different backgrounds—Mary Wallace Roanhorse, a half Native American, half African American woman, and Charlie McHale, a gay Irishman, twice her age cross paths in Phoenix, Arizona. To the street people Charlie is a compassionate hero. The homeless idealize him for his unconditional commitment to them.Outwardly, Mary is a success.

She escapes reservation poverty, becomes a lawyer, and defends the poor. However, childhood wounds have left her ambivalent about her Navajo tribe and longing to know the African American father that abandoned her. She guards her secret—childhood sexual abuse in foster care—never telling anyone until she finds the courage to trust Charlie and tell him about the abuse.A week later fate puts Mary in a time and place to be like her hero Charlie. At the scene of a street riot between Restoration Crusaders and Waves Liberation resisters outside a health care clinic, Mary risks her own life by helping a Mexican woman and her teenage daughter escape the violence.Emancipated by the invisible forces working in her relationship with Charlie and by her own heroic action, Mary is propelled into the future where she will have a profound impact on America.
