It was an enigma. The ancient monument known as St. Thomas Cathedral in the quiet town of Ipswich, Massachusetts. After centuries of use, the decaying and decrepit church was slowly falling apart; the last congregation having left decades ago. Ready to put it out of its misery, the Town of Ipswich hired the largest engineering firm in Boston to determine its fate. This simple decision, however, will prove catastrophic. From murder in the streets of Shenzhen, China, to political upheaval in Massachusetts and Great Britain, the Town of Ipswich becomes ground zero in a titanic struggle between a powerful Vermont industrialist, a conniving British politician, and a two-faced Boston businessman. Caught in the middle are two innocent people: the alluring Carrie Medford and the intellectual Jason Wiltshire. Their love affair ignites these volatile forces, bringing them together in an epic battle that will determine the destiny of the United States & the United Kingdom, and seal the fate of St. Thomas, forever. And all this, because of A Church in Ipswich.
