Everybody's Daughter

Michael John Sullivan

$2.70 on Kindle


What if you had a chance to ask a loved one for forgiveness – after they died? What would you say?

Would you give up your own lifetime of happiness for someone else?

Michael Stewart confronts these questions as he travels back in time through a mysterious tunnel in an old church when the Romans ruled with brutal violence and Jesus preached his peaceful message.

His teenage daughter Elizabeth soon follows Michael, but is surprised to discover that her father is nowhere to be found. Little does she know that Michael has returned safely to the present, leaving her to battle a vicious Roman soldier.

Separated by centuries, Michael is trapped to fight his own battles in the present day. Elizabeth’s disappearance, and the discovery of her blood in his car ignites a rush of judgment as the FBI focuses on him as a person of interest. Michael’s only hope for saving his daughter rests in the hands of his best friend – a local pastor with secrets of his own – and a mysterious old journal containing tales of miracles within the walls of the old church itself.

Thrilling and suspenseful, EVERYBODY'S DAUGHTER takes readers on a miraculous journey of their own, where salvation can be found in acts of sacrifice and hope remains forever eternal through the passage of a tunnel

“I found the novel, Everybody's Daughter fascinating and mindful of the human capacity for genuine, heartfelt love from the soul. Sullivan is brilliant in his methodical way of painting the picture of the importance and relevance of father-daughter relationships. Through his language and their interaction, I could 'feel' the love between Michael and Elizabeth as he captured and described the importance of such in words. His candid descriptions took me alongside with him on his journey as he fought his own battles while moving through centuries. This book defined the essence of the web and flow to find sincere meaning behind the most critical of relationships on the planet. I have to admit, I was hoping Michael Stewart would end up with Leah. Unable to put this book down upon beginning the first page, I am look forward with a vengeance to discovering his thoughts on the future of relationships and the spirit of the human condition in his upcoming writing. Such a powerful writer as evidenced by his thought-provoking gift of expression! A real page-turner and FIVE STARS!”
