Praise for The Seeds of Time
This is a story of romance, bravery, determination, survival, heartbreak
and joy, all poignantly and convincingly conveyed. Richard's compelling
desire to discover the horror of his reticent father's experiences
bring with it regrets and touching recollections of his relationship
with him. All perfectly blended, well balanced and served up with
Faith's usual clarity. There is a clue in the title--Book 1 indicates
there's a Book 2--and there's a gentle little teaser to tempt you on.
incredible story from Faith Mortimer riddled with suspense, intrigue
and action. There are not enough words to express how much I love her work. Just when you think the characters have no way out, the twists
take the book in a whole new direction. LOVE IT!!
This intensely romantic yet realistic action and adventure novel spans two generations and the unimaginable gulf between the Second World War and the present.
When Englishman Richard Barker suffers a devastating loss he learns to come to terms with his grief. He is helped by two beautiful women, newly discovered quiet and smouldering American, Sorrel and the tempestuous and wilful, Miranda an old flame from long ago.
While Richard is battling with his feelings, by chance he enters into the dark, often surreal world of his dead father's past life spent during the Second World War. It is Sorrel's Grandfather, an American Air Force pilot, who contacts Richard with some intriguing news which helps Richard to his senses.
Richard lives in a world that is sometimes as tragic as A Farewell to Arms and as sensuous as The English Patient. His story and that of his father are crafted from the ruins of war and the indestructibility of love. The action is non-stop, the locations are intriguing and the characters are appealing. There is tension, romance and harrowing escapes all woven within a story that captures the imagination and keeps the reader guessing until the very end.
Will Richard find inner peace and love?
