Can money, power, and prestige sustain happiness? Can a surgeon trained in the scientific method believe in God when many friends and patients are atheists? Relying on his intelligence and perseverance, at age forty-two, Dr. Sottosanti achieved the American dream--money, power, fame, and a clifftop house overlooking the Pacific Ocean. Finding himself mired in the Seven Deadly Sins (his ""mortal adhesions"") and helpless to extricate himself, he cried out in despair, ""God, if you are up there, all I want is inner peace."" And with that one submission, his life changed, resulting in a cascade of improbable and unbelievable events, culminating in a salvific miracle experienced in the tomb of a medieval saint during a pilgrimage on Spain's Camino de Santiago. Faith, happiness, and inner peace followed. Readers will travel with him to learn life's lessons in an inspiring, riveting, fast-paced memoir.
