Book Description

1965. At eighteen years of age, Jack Webber is friendless and not the most popular of men, despite belonging to a wealthy London family. Shy and slightly dysfunctional from a lifetime of abuse, and recovering from pneumonia, he is sent to convalesce at Kelynek House in Western Cornwall, which is owned by his estranged uncle and his young wife, a passionless, yet mysterious native of the area. There, Jack quickly falls in love with Jacqueline, a twenty-seven year old reclusive woman artist and writer of children's novels who lives, apparently in 1946, in an isolated cottage.
However, this is not just a regular time-travel fantasy love story. For what Jack ultimately uncovers is immeasurably far more bizarre, abnormal and disturbing.
From the pen of Molly Cutpurse, who brought you the perverse, Sacerdotis terribilis, comes an unorthodox story of abnormal love.

More About the Author

Find me on Facebook at

I was born a native of Stratford in the East End of London in September 1952 and raised in nearby Leyton, developing a lifelong interest in literature. I joined my local library when I was three. Unfortunately, I had an awful education due to dyslexia. I was caned often because I could not learn. Therefore, I am entirely self-taught. Many of my thirty novels have been proofread (and then republished) by me several times. Nevertheless, on occasions, I still find mistakes, and I apologise in advance.
My favourite book is a dictionary and I often find joy with the correct placement of a single word. I am noted for including 'cookies' or 'Easter eggs' in much of my work and I delight in incorporating coincidences and parallels from our real world.
A polymath, shy, slightly synaesthete with a predilection for the supernatural since childhood and transgendered, after working at hundreds of jobs for twenty-five years, in 1994, after the death of my parents, I decided to change my life around and write as a transgendered woman. Although having assisted in various TV and film projects, I enjoy privacy and I am known for my hermit-like existence, being fully cognizance of how people react to my preferred gender. However, I am known for my positive outlook and broad sense of humour.
I feel comfortable working simply. During the embryonic stages of a piece, I prefer to have very little between myself and content. Although my pieces are written up and further constructed on a word processor, the initial, 'layering of the landscape' is achieved with nothing more than a sharp HB pencil, a wad of new paper and a clean white eraser. This method of creation, I accept as pure, free from electronic distraction and infinitely and immediately alterable. Pareidolia often plays a part in my creative process.
I am an officially one of Amazon's best sellers. I've been judged that I am the 94th 'most read' on Amazon. And I've recently been told that my portrait, as a transgendered writer, is now hanging in the Los Angeles County Museum of Art and is now a part of the museum's permanent collection.
A lifelong migraine and panic sufferer, my work reflects the subterranean, saturnian, plutonic, spiritual, solar and luna aspects of human existence as I continuously attempt to understand our world. A lifelong fascination with time, abandonment, love and death are four qualities which motivate me.

This book needs to be reread by a proof reader as continuity of characters was frustrating. for example characters name changed.

1.0 out of 5 stars Absolutely dreadful. 21 May 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
"Molly Cutpurse" is an elitist mysoginist who cannot write. The book was about three quarters of the way through before the back stories were done and the main story began. Characters would suddenly act completely out of character with no explanation given. The hero's name changed throughout the book from Jack to Jake and back again. The spelling and grammar were atrocious. A ten year old could have done better. I would only recommend this book to tutors of creative writing courses as an example of how not to write a book.

2.0 out of 5 stars A Good Story BUT........................ 1 Oct. 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
A lovely story especially if you know Cornwall well in the area it is set BUT like a previous book I read by this author it had not been proof read properly. The spelling mistakes are very obvious and there are also other parts of the story with wrong information in. Also I like to read a book with the chapters defined, and each chapter with a heading instead of running all the chapters on endlessly into the next which I found most annoying. I am very surprised that Amazon is allowing downloads of a very inferior product, perhaps that is why her books are so reasonable. I will not be buying any more of this authors books until I can be assured they have been proof read and presented properly. This is a shame as basically Molly Cutpurse is a very good imaginative writer and her books would be a joy to read if presented properly.

I really liked this book I live in the area it was set in and molly cutpurse had it 99 per cent right in her description of the area, I love the subject and the time twist. Molly never fails to deliver, her books are really easy reads.
