About the Book

Always at this point, she wakes up. But is it only a dream or infinitely more frightening; a regression in which she is travelling back in time, to be someone else in some other age, before she was even born?

If so, what if one night she doesn’t awake to avoid what happens next? Something so terrible as to prevent her returning back to the present and her young daughter, Katy, the only person she now loves, an emotion she no longer feels for any man, unwilling to trust one enough to drop the barrier she has, through past experiences, placed around herself.

But each night the dream gets more real. Suddenly, on Thanksgiving Day, she is twice drawn back into it, and realises she is occupying the body of an ancestor she was named after, one of the settlers who came to the “New World” on board the Mayflower to make a new home, who is being chased by the same demons through the same forbidding forest. A young girl in love with the young chief of a Native American tribe, except, unlike Damaris, her descendant gives without reserve, even to putting her life at risk for the sake of her lover’s … and in so doing reveals to Damaris the meaning of true love.

But if her young namesake and lover escape the dangers facing them, and if Damaris is then returned to her own time, will she still be her old guarded self, or will the experience remain with her enough to change her when she meets a stranger in similar need?

About the Author
Richard Rees

Richard was born in a village near Wrexham in North Wales, where he spoke only Welsh until he went to school at the age of five. An English Grammar school of the old establishment kind followed, fostering pupil advancement with a no-nonsense but constructive approach that proved formative. But his plans to further his education and develop his creativity, reading English at University, were thwarted by his father who advocated that his son should join him in the family accountancy practice. Torn by dilemma, Richard rebelled by joining the Royal Welch Fusiliers where he saw active service, witnessing at first-hand some of the horrors of warfare in the jungles of the Far East, including the death of his best friend who was shot and killed just yards away from him.
