The Gateway (Hardback)

Unavailable. Replaced by new version by new supplier.


T. M. McNally s subject in the seven stories in this, his third story collection, is love, always love. For him, these are religious stories for skeptics who are spiritually inclined. In Bastogne, a middle-aged son visiting the French countryside where his father was wounded in World War II pursues his father s early ghosts, along with some of his own. In Given, the father of the lovely Annabella determines to provide a means of escape for his cherished daughter who has made a drastic mistake in her choice of a husband. And in the title story, a man and his wife celebrate their wedding anniversary in Paris where he muses about the bittersweet vagaries of his life and loves and about his wife s younger days in the City of Light."
