About this product
- DescriptionThis vel is a delightful combination of adult romance and science fiction centred around the character Lisa Macdonald, a veterinarian, who moves back to her homeland of Scotland to be near her ill mother. There she meets Richard, a wealthy and famous musician and they fall in love. But she soon finds their whirlwind relationship is far from rmal as unusual events begin to take place. Richard reveals his involvement in a secret government organisation. He introduces Lisa to a talking spaceship and tells her he has ancestors from outer space. She then finds herself transported on an epic journey into space where she visits the moon, learns the truth about her own origins and the hidden lives of her parents including the news that her father whom she believed dead is still alive. Synthetic humans, a cure for cancer and alien mammals are all encountered but the most affecting part is the sincere and organic relationship between the two main protagonists. Lisa's discovery that she possesses latent telepathic capabilities also adds to the intensity of the romantic element of the vel. There is something particularly life-affirming and comforting in the development of their romance in the face of so many profound revelations. The book is filled with hope for humanity, a belief that time and techlogy can and will create a balanced society where the human lifespan is extended and a more organic society put in place.
- Author BiographyWhen Frank was nineteen years old he witnessed an unidentified flying object whilst coming home from a late night out. It was an experience which has haunted him ever since. He has always had radical ideas about the existence of extra terrestrial life. Frank has always been interested in science and engineering. Having completed an engineering apprenticeship, he worked in design for thirty years. When engineering started to decline he decided to leave the busy South of England to run a guesthouse in North Wales. During the relative tranquillity of this period he formulated the story for his book. As an avid reader it was always his ambition to write a story that was different from the normal sc-fi genre, so he decided to combine a strong romantic element into the story. Frank is now retired and is concentrating on a second book that follows the Varnicus dynasty and the ultimate destiny of planet Earth.
