Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0743465059, Mass Market Paperback)

ONE WOMAN
Sarah Jordan lived in a dream world. Her beauty and wit made her a favorite of high society, and an opulent life of travel and privilege was hers for the having. Then, in one shocking moment, her eyes were opened to the truth about her life -- and the fact that she had to do something more with it.

ONE MAN
Nick Callahan had a mission -- save the lives of those who had no hope of salvation. For him, "proper channels" and bureaucracy were obstacles to be run around, over, and if need be, through. All that mattered were the people who suffered -- until Sarah Jordan joined him, and changed everything.

ONE WORLD
Together, they would face the most forsaken lands on the globe, and become caught up in conflicts that raged around the world. Armed with compassion, mercy, and indomitable will, they would risk all they had, driven by their increasing passion for each other and their lives' work.
