“Pete leans towards Jason. ‘The thing is Jason, we are all connected through an invisible network and we can send love through this network to help individuals. Maybe people do terrible things because they’ve forgotten about this network. They think they’re not part of it. Maybe when we send love to another, it’s to remind them who they really are.”

From The Call of the Triple Spiral

It’s so well written and engaging – for me it was one of those books that I didn’t want to put down. (I even caught myself leaving the room when my husband came in, lest he should want to interrupt my reading by talking to me ..)  Psychologically, Tilda represents a six month crash course in how to live well, teaching the lessons that usually take us many years to learn slowly and painfully.

I found this novel immediately engrossing and enjoyable to read – a great escape from locked down life and a powerful commentary on our troubled lives. I enjoyed the exploration of time travel and all the paradoxes that go with it. The spiritual dimensions of the book provide an unusual lens through which to view our dysfunctional world.
