Trapped in a world of anger, 29-year-old Bryan Whittaker cannot move on with his life until he takes a journey into his past...a dangerous journey that will lead him into the heart of the Amazon Rain Forest.  Instead of the revenge he seeks Bryan finds Diana and through her love he is able to make peace with his past and find redemption.

When his missionary father disappeared, while on a mission of mercy to a remote tribe deep in the interior of the Amazon Rain Forest, seven-year-old Bryan's life changed forever. He lost not only his father but also his faith.  He could not trust a God who seemingly turned a deaf ear to a small boy's desperate prayers.

Consumed with a grief she could not share, Bryan's mother left him to grieve alone a burden too heavy for any child to bear.  As a consequence his grief turned into anger and he began a twenty-two year odyssey of broken relationships.  His toxic rage destroyed his faith, made him a terrible son to his mother, estranged him from his sister and ruined his marriage.  It wounded him, turned him into an emotional cripple, unable to express any emotion except anger.

Recently divorced, his mother newly buried, and at odds with his sister, Bryan is at a crossroads in his life.  Bitter, resentful, unable to hold a job and most of all unable to love or be loved he takes his share of the small inheritance from his mother's modest estate and heads for the Amazon Basin in a desperate attempt to discover what happened to his father.

The Alabaster Cross is a deeply human story about the complexities of love between a man and a woman, parents and children, a brother and a sister, and ultimately the transforming power of divine love.

If you've ever struggled to restore a broken relationship you will identify with Bryan's journey as he strives to make peace with his past.

"In The Alabaster Cross, Richard Exley has written a compelling and exciting story of mystery, adventure and romance. A young man's passionate pursuit to discover the truth about his father's disappearance in the Amazon also leads him on a fascinating spiritual journey as he faces his own confusion, bitterness and grief. This is a beautifully written story of faith, perseverance, forgiveness and redemption. I was not only captivated by the adventure, I was also impacted in my own spiritual journey. It takes a great book to accomplish both of those." (E. Brewer, Grapevine, TX)
