No one left behind. No one left unloved. These mantras have guided war-worn Vietnam veteran Tom Faunce through the better part of his life as a missionary devoted to the less fortunate. The work takes him back to Vietnam, where he hears of an elderly man claiming to be John Hartley Robertson, an American listed as killed in action after a covert mission in Laos, who has spent the past 40 years in Vietnam. Their meeting begins an unbelievable sequence of events as Faunce works to repatriate an aging soldier with a failing memory against the wishes of the American government. Is Robertson a patriotic prisoner of war or a senile imposter? How do you prove an identity? A masterfully crafted story of two men whose lives intersect through the burdens of war, Unclaimed is emotionally riveting and an inspirational example of what strangers will do when bound by loyalty, duty and faith.
