Publisher's Summary

A unique mix of sci-fi, paranormal, drama and a dash of mystery.

Wade Ashby inherits his grandfather's estate in Oxfordshire, England, becoming 13th Baron of Ashby Manor. He travels from Australia with his friend Hugh to take up his birthright and find out why there is secrecy surrounding certain aspects of the baronage and members of the family. The two are caught up in strange dreams and odd time occurrences.

Led back through the manor's sordid and fascinating history, it seems there had once been a circular structure in the gardens, known locally as the Temple of Knowledge. One of Wade's forebears dabbled in alchemy and the new sciences - Wade digs up weird, archaic technology and it becomes a race to repair time before the situation is out of everyone's control!

Outstanding!

As a an expat in the same manner of the 2 main male characters, i.e. bought to Australia as a young child by English parents, I guess I naturally connected to them at the outset. While the similarity ends there , my love of this story, and all the many characters, does not. Richard Piper does a truly superb job of bringing this tale to audio life. Traci Harding is a story teller par exellance and this novel is no exception. You will fall in love with Wade Ashby and his friends as they find themselves dealing with ghostly time portals and coming to terms with drastic changes in life circumstances. Some you'd only deam about and others you'd be happy to miss out on. The humour in this book is very reminiscent of the Australian and British mixed heritage portrayed and will keep you smiling, as the story will keep you enthralled. A veritable "page turner" of an audio book.
