Ladd Franklin is enamored of Willow Caprice, a classmatea€™s sister, with whom he strikes up a controversial friendship in the seminary and during his priesthood. Ladd enters the field of international relief services. This assignment brings him into critical episodes on several continents. Eventually, he contends with Soviet Union officials and is present in St. Petera€™s Square at the time of the assassination attempt on Pope John Paul II.
