Product Description

Product Description

The Everlasting Monday takes Rob and Kate, star-struck lovers whose families have been estranged for twenty years, into the most startling adventure they could never have imagined. Their own story runs alongside a more ancient story, into which they are drawn and which grows into something terrifyingly immediate and scarily out of their control.Through dreams that are more real than reality, angels who appear in their living rooms and lives that are more rollercoaster than routine, Kate and Rob are drawn inexorably back together - and at the same time, back to something altogether bigger.

5.0 out of 5 stars Like Nothing I've Ever Read... 11 Jun 2013
Format:Kindle Edition
The Everlasting Monday is one of the freshest and most unique books I have read since the Harry Potter series. The authors, Ruth Calder Murphy and Mathew Taylor have stepped beyond the confines of literary genre to create a piece of fiction that is romance, adventure, thriller, historical fiction, and more. Much more. This is not the typical book, but rather one that will have you laughing, crying, sitting on the edge of your seat, and, most importantly thinking in ways that you may have never known you could.

Ms. Calder Murphy and Mr. Taylor have done an outstanding job of weaving an intricate and surprising plot with exquisite writing. The characters are so well developed that you feel very quickly like you have met friends - friends that you want to engage with. Friends that, perhaps, one day you will engage with. Sandwiched between covers adorned with Ms. Calder Murphy's original drawing and painting, The Everlasting Monday is a pure joy to read.

5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant and thought provoking! 3 Sep 2013
Format:Paperback
This is a 'must read' for anyone who wants something a little bit different. I found it thoroughly absorbing, interesting and thought provoking. All the references to other literature and art work, including quotes from the Bible, made me want to investigate or, in some cases, revisit them.
The storyline is original and fascinating and the main two characters are very believable; evoking both sympathy and empathy from the reader. I really cared about them and was keen to know their fate - which I'm not going to give away here! You'll have to read it to find out! Some of the other characters (one in particular) felt like 'old friends' towards the end of the book.
This book will always hold a special place in my heart, as I read some of it whilst on honeymoon in Sicily, and it is one that I will definitely read again! Well done, Ruth Calder-Murphy and Matthew Taylor, for you have created something very special.

5.0 out of 5 stars A different read. 5 Aug 2013
By Reader
Format:Paperback
This is an excellent read and crosses many genres. There is romance, mystery, philosophy and theology.
It isn't like any book I've read, though it has echoes of C.S.Lewis and Jostein Gaarder.
I've read it through once and look forward to reading it again. A really worthwhile read.

3.0 out of 5 stars A book worth reading. 26 Sep 2013
By Martin
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I think this is a fantastic book in more ways than one. It relies heavily on fantasy. But it is also something of a tour de force. We have a compelling love-story which is quite true to life on the human level, with a carefully constructed local-colour background and plot. I was able to warm to the two principal characters and to enjoy the descriptive writing about the scenery, both natural and domestic, in the real world.

All this foreground stuff is set against a hugely serious background containing not only fantasy, but also a fantastic array of intellectual disciplines encompassing poetry, art, philosophy, mathematics & geometry, psychology, biblical theology, mystical theology, science, astronomy, and some other areas of knowledge that I have already forgotten about. The spiritual guide is an engaging character called Mal, an upbeat 21st century angel.

In that connection, I have to say that the biblical typology lesson which the book conveys is excellent: important stuff that is not sufficiently taught or understood in church and school.

However, I am at a bit of a loss to know for whom the book is intended, indeed to whom I could recommend it. The older generation of liberally-educated Christians might be put off by the generation-gap feeling of the style and find the fantasy element a bit too naïve. The younger generation might not be quite so enchanted by a love story that has a more traditional feel about it, and also may have difficulty charting their way through the unfamiliar territory of biblical and other allusions.

On a stylistic note, I appreciate the quality of the descriptive writing: colours, shapes, sounds and feelings all beautifully described.

4.0 out of 5 stars quite different, very good, but slow 11 Aug 2013
By Amazon Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Not my usual type of book, but I gave it a try because of all the high ratings. Yes, it was worth it.
I'm more of an action-type of book, so this seemed slow to me.
It's got a good and interesting plot, tho some parts seem a little repetitive.
There are a lot of literary allusions, past and present, but it's ok if you don't "get it". Just a little pretentious I thought.
Ok, enough complaining... here's the good part. I often re-read books that I like and I *WILL* read this book again.

1.0 out of 5 stars Too religious 1 July 2013
By Amazon Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition
I didn't finish this book, in fact I barely started. As soon as the main characters started talking about reading the Bible and then dreaming about being at the crucifixion of Jesus I stopped reading. Definitely not my idea of a romance novel.
