Three women, two loves, and a plot 500 years in the making.
The Wanderer finds new purpose. With little more than a week’s rent in his pocket, he begins another life in the Welsh valleys. Reunited with The Mumbler, they look forward to a reunion with Ødäl. What is he scheming now? Hints of a developing catastrophe follow Brad as he wanders on, finding an ephemeral love. The plot thickens, days come and days go and on the cusp of calamity, we find Brad is older but no wiser.
Brad and those around him attempt to make sense of their existence and strive for a little love and affection in their hard, unforgiving lives. Subtle strands of social change, an age-old vendetta and of course his need to look to the stars are intertwined with a little of Brad’s past, more of his present life with Jan, and his future without her. Richly crafted into a trichotomy of historical, science and romantic fiction, this chronicle follows Brad as he fights for what he believes in; whilst surviving and attempting to hold on to true love.
"What a clever and creative story. The imagination to intrigue the reader is fascinating. It draws upon real and unreal events transitioning through an often-unspecified timeline. The depth of rigorous research combined with the artistic flair to fuse relationships, science, religion, history and the future certainly challenges beliefs.
Excellent work and the ending once again left me wanting more..
Farrell spins a fascinating story which spans time. Great detail to absorb which is then lightened with his humour. I’ve read both this book and A Time to Deceive and am looking forward to his next offering.
I've read the first book in this series and this second offering does not dissapoint."
