Falling Through Time: a woman’s journey to the future
by Patricia Comroe Frank
This novel is a “kinder, gentler,” post-apocalyptic, ecological, simple-living, green, utopian, future-world, love story filled with colorful characters and thought-provoking questions. Falling Through Time champions a new way of being in the world. We humans survive a population die-off, and we’ve learned to live in harmony and stewardship with our natural world. Falling Through Time is told through the voice and eyes of Summer Holbrook, a not-so-nice, hard-driving advertising executive who accidentally finds herself in 2084. She’s furious to be in this new world, in this village of alternative healers, and she wants to go home NOW. Follow Summer’s adventures as she plots to outwit her “captors” to return home. Who will win this battle between Summer’s iron will and the gentle ways of the this new world? The struggle takes unexpected twists and turns as Summer battles a difficult conversion in attitude and lifestyle. Ultimately, Summer discovers nature, love, and community trump materialism. Along the way, you’ll meet and befriend the distinct personalities of Sophia, the feisty and wise village elder; Dog Man, the Bassett-faced keeper of the kennels, Carna, the irrepressible culinary goddess of the village; and Lady Mercury, a most memorable dog who perhaps teaches Summer her most important lesson of all.
Patricia Comroe Frank’s bio. From the moment my five-year old feet crossed the threshold of my hometown library, I’ve had a life-long love affair with books and words. I’ve made my living as a writer of advertising copy, magazine features, Web content, and anthologies. Falling Through Time is my debut full-length novel. This book is a post-apocalyptic voyage of discovery as experienced through a hard-driving advertising woman’s eyes; a novel of culture clash and transformation. This book answers the frustration and sadness I’ve felt in how roughly we treat our home planet and its fragile resources. I’ve created a new world in which I—and perhaps you, too—would enjoy living.
