A family saga moving from 1930's Wyoming, through 1950's Spain and Kenya to end of the century Texas and Tanzania, Crossing Stars tells the story of three generations of the Creightons. Phillip Creighton faces his diagnosis of cancer alone, except for his long-time friend, Pedro. As he looks back on his life-his humble beginning in Wyoming, the Cambridge education his father struggled so hard to give him, his painful love affairs-he realizes the life he has missed with his daughter and son. Phillip is consumed with guilt for having abandoned his children and now he faces a choice-one which will affect their lives as well as his own. As their lives come together, will Phillip be given the second chance to heal his wounded heart and become the father he had wanted to be?
