The Caul Part I: Born with a Mission, by James Allan Matte
He Was Born with the Caul, Invulnerable to Danger, Destined for Adventure.
According to legend, those born with the caul, a protective membrane covering an infantís body, are special beyond measure, resistant to physical harm until a fabulous destiny has been fulfilled. On a cold March night in 1931, the extraordinary James Markham emerges into the world, enveloped by the caul, which stands as a prophecy to the wonders and tribulations he will encounter in his life. Born with a Mission is the first installment in the epic trilogy, The Caul, establishing the early adventures of the young Jim Markham.
Taught early by his French-Canadian Grandmaman in Montreal to face challenges instead of retreating from them, Markham learns that he is indeed different, and assumes a responsibility of defending the weak and powerless that travels both the years of his life and the lands of this earth. This is a story of self-sacrifice and justice. From taking a beating for a victimized schoolmate in boarding school, to defending the honor of a black friend hounded by a racist punk in New York, to preventing a mad Frenchman from killing his wife in a bar: itís evident that James Markham may very well be a foundation of hope and fortitude for dark, dark times ahead.
Prepare yourself for an expedition across this wondrous and terrible world through the eyes of a courageous young man secured by his faith and powers beyond comprehension, trained by the United States Air Force and Office of Special Investigations to confront, and obliterate, evil.
