Celtic Crossing

A Novel by Len Mattano

Aideen Callaghan and her grandson are the last of a long Irish lineage plagued by cancer. The boy now lies dying. Desperate for a miraculous cure, she sets an historian priest and a shepherd seminarian on a quest to find the holy relic that inspired the Celtic cross—but disappeared to history in 1866.

It is a quest into the unexpected.

"How do you expect to find it if we're not allowed to look?"


"Wistfully beautiful."
