About the Book

From the moment Edward Rippington is born,

everyone agrees that he’s “special,”

although perhaps not in a good way.


On day one, a surgeon tells his loving parents that their newborn son will probably not survive. If he lives any number of months or years, Edward will face severe physical and mental disabilities. The doctor even recommends that the boy be put into an institution.


Instead, his parents take him home, sincerely believing they can give their child all he needs. Although his physical and emotional development lags, Edward defies the odds by thriving. He exhibits extraordinarily perceptive powers. As a baby, he cries only before something bad is about to happen. As a tiny toddler, he spends time alone in his room, all the while chattering to his invisible friend.


The only explanation his parents can figure out is that Edward has a guardian angel guiding him and preparing him for an incredible destiny, but what destiny and why Edward? In this compelling fantasy, a child with Asperger’s syndrome grows into a remarkable man who travels the world—and beyond—and fulfills a divine vocation that no one saw coming.
