A WALK BETWEEN TWO WORLDS: A YOUNG MAN EMBARKS ON A SPIRITUAL JOURNEY WHILE CONFRONTING GHOSTS OF HIS VICTORIAN PAST. David Pierson is a gifted musician-songwriter and a brilliant student, but he is also sixteen going on thirty, thanks to the six-headed dragon entity he has fought in his recurring nightmares since early childhood, always leaving him with a sense of a dreadful yet unknown guilt that haunts him.
When he moves to Yorkshire, England with his family, his nightmares become reality—the farmhouse they move into has a real ghost, a ghost with a name—Nathaniel Ley. Nathaniel is in love with David's mother, but David appears to be the source of the tormented spirit's anguish. In time, David will discover why he holds the key to releasing Nathaniel from his ghostly existence and understand his own guilt, but it will be no easy journey. David learns to travel between the worlds thanks to Nathaniel's daughter, the beautiful and ephemeral Cecilia. Cecilia takes David back to a time when the long-abandoned 18th century mansion next door was splendid and full of life, and she gradually helps him to remember the past and their never-ending love story. Once more, they share undying passion and relive their vow of everlasting love, which started long before they were Daniel and Cecilia. David gradually begins to realize he is part of a much bigger picture that started millennia ago.
Two haunted houses and two ghosts, but one of them is not a ghost at all.
⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐“Liquid Chocolate for the Brain!”
Although I am a graduate of the prestigious “Great Books” program and have been exposed to a myriad of literary styles, upon reading “Serch Bythol” I was reduced to a
single syllable: “WOW”. The book opens beautifully and grasps you in its elegant and nurturing clutches. It is not a book you will want to put down. In terms of language in description, prose, and
dialogue, the book does nothing short of excel: alliteration and colorful phrases abound but are never used in excess. “Serch Bythol” is like liquid chocolate for the brain!
All this is not to say that the plot is lacking. Not by a long shot! The story has many twists and turns and is never for a moment predictable. Love reigns supreme in this superlative volume, and it is inclusive without being heavy-handed or obvious.
⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐“A New Old Love Story…!”
A story of love that transcends space and time. Is love eternal? Does the spirit persist after death? An old love story for modern spirituality. You will be taken on a roller coaster ride of magic, mysticism, and musings on the nature of life, love and death through the eyes of contemporary characters with ancient lineage. I await the remaining volumes impatiently!
⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐“Worlds within Worlds”
Deborah has written an amazing book in which she brilliantly co-mingles different centuries with a variety of captivating characters. Time travel with this everlasting love story and discover how the main character's lives are indefinitely connected. I anxiously wait to read the other books in the series.
