About the Book

This book centers on the influence of each boy in his historical period having been born the product of the rape of their mothers and the subsequent different life experiences each boy had as a consequence of how their mothers were treated during their early childhood experiences. Jesus was fortunate in having a father who took an interest in him and helped him in every way he could become the man he became. Gottlieb, on the other hand, had a tragic beginning, barely surviving the ordeal of not having a legitimate father and facing the constant harassment of a society that rejected the illegal children from unmarried mothers. The outcome for the life of each boy proved to be what he himself had decided to do with the life that he had!
