The Eagle Flies at Night
What does an ordinary community do when the state department settles refugees in their city? How does the arrival of refugees challenge the hearts and minds of residents? These are the questions Reverend Thomas Giles asks himself and his congregation as they wrestle with the ways that compassion is manifested in the city of Portland, Maine.
This book of fiction explores the stories of refugees fleeing violence in their homeland as well as in their own backyard.
