Readers, here is an excerpt...
The novel is well paced with brief chapters that serve as stepping-stones to the next vantage – a technique that practically demands staying with the story without pause to the end. This is a fine novel, rich in entertainment no matter the preferences of the reader, and the philosophy that emerges is exceptional. As the initial character Elijah, a ‘multidimensional sovereign being’ whose yoga meditation in Indonesia opens the book, states at book’s end, ‘Together simultaneously, we all realigned with our true natures.’
Impressive, and a beautiful reading experience, this is a very fine solo venture for the gifted James Morcan. Highly recommended.- Grady Harp, Amazon
Four sets of characters are isolated all over the world and each set is trying to solve their problems via Facetime or other connections which involve video connections. Their problems consist of personal problems as well as the problems they have to confront due to the virus. It is definitely realistic in that given weeks to contemplate without getting out to see others, the characters. Like the rest of us, are beginning to now have time to contemplate on their own lives. What did they do wrong or right, who did they hurt or help, were they kind with what they did or not, and how will they survive without a job for money?
As you read the book and get involved in the characters’ lives, one begins to start thinking of what they have done in the pandemic and if what they have done was create a they have begun to think of what they have done in the past and how to compensate for what happened." - P. Blevins, Amazon
