Faced with dysfunctional families and less than desirable companions, Quigley and Marcie move into seamy ways of getting on in the world, one a bone-breaker for a loan shark the other a prostitute. Without much incentive for positive change, there is not much hope for eithers' dream of a better life. Until Quigley, for unknown reasons, finds himself becoming a decent human being. Resisting with all his might, he is powerless to stop that process.
Through circumstances and self-discovery both Quigley and Marcie learn how to deal with the changes that are being thrust upon them by forces they don't quite understand, but ultimately must come to terms with.
Drama and high stakes adventure, comedy and spiritual reckoning await anyone who shares this journey with them.

In a career spanning sixty years, Dr. Bertram Rothschild has treated anguish and suffering in the variety of forms they appear in human experience. Loneliness, a sense of dislocation in existence troubles many; and along with their distress, they cannot fathom how to change their lives. This is a story about how two people, with great courage and tenacity find ways to recreate themselves to live lives that feel more in tune with their inner cores.
They have to reassess the ugly residue of how they were parented and discover that they, not the universe (or heaven if you prefer) can and must guide their lives. The struggle is psychological and sometimes physical as they work out how they might regain and maintain their dignity along with their compassion for others.
As with many writers, the act of writing often opens the author for his or her own self-rediscovery and Dr. Rothschild is no exception. The hard work can seem daunting, but is the most satisfying experience he can imagine.
