From the Back Cover
The inspiration behind the book was really from a desire to create a fictional story from an unashamedly Christian worldview. Much of science-fiction has a secular/naturalistic basis whereas 'Godstone' is travelling in the opposite direction. Having a pirate buried in a local churchyard along with tales of him haunting the area, seemed something of a gift in terms of story-telling. Other historical figures, most notably Isaac Newton, were then added to interact with the fictional ones as they became lost in time.
