Subtitle: A Legend of Personal Discovery

When a young boy finds a mysterious object in the creek near his home, his parents launch an investigation that will eventually link the ancient object to such remarkable figures as George Washington Carver, Oskar Shindler, Joan of Arc, and Alfred Vanderbilt. Separate pieces of the artifact, with different but similar inscriptions, shape the lives of those who possess the object.

With each new discovery comes new questions: What is the connection between these objects? Is there another piece? And, if so, how might this final piece complete the object and its message? Could it, indeed, change the very world with its power and wisdom?

A dramatic epilogue reveals not only the origin and fulfillment of this amazing artifact but also the guiding principles behind this story that can be applied directly to listeners' lives.

Dorry Chandler is a journalist who has always had a taste for mysteries. Curious about the strange "rock" her son has found, she takes it to Dylan Langford, an expert on antiquities who works at the Denver Museum of Nature and Science. When the language inscribed on the artifact is translated, a far-reaching mystery begins to unravel. This normal family's life becomes anything but normal as each piece of evidence sheds additional light on the object's significance. The Chandlers may have unearthed a fragment of one of the most profound relics in mankind's history and the key to understanding the extraordinary achievements of esteemed men and women throughout time--Joan of Arc, Thomas Jefferson, George Washington Carver, Oskar Schindler--who seem to have been profoundly
affected by the message the object bears. What power resides in this seemingly unimportant piece of bronze? Who passed its secrets on through the centuries? And why has the object appeared now, in this way, in this time and place? Weaving a thread of good and evil through history, The Lost Choice follows the story of an ancient relic and offers a parable of the hidden potential of the human heart.
