About the Author
Irvine J Eidelman was born in the town of Florida on the outskirts of Johannesburg, South Africa. He holds Bachelor of Medicine and Bachelor of Surgery degrees from the University of Cape Town, and a Master of Medicine (Psychiatry) degree from the University of Stellenbosch. Eidelman has worked for multinational pharmaceutical companies both in South Africa and abroad as Medical Director and Director of Clinical Research. He has also held office on the executive of various national societies of psychiatry in South Africa. Dr. Eidelman and his family now live in Cape Town South Africa where he is in full time private psychiatric practice. Eidelman's interest in photography and wildlife conservation began early in his life. He is a frequent visitor to the Kgalagadi Transfrontier National Park (The Peace Park) which lies in the remote northern regions of South Africa. It was after attending a course in Creative Writing that his talents in writing and photography grew from ideas into publications, and Eidelman published his first collection of photographs, Cape To Kalahari, in 2006. Dr Irvine Eidelman has a keen interest in World War 2 and has now published his first novel, The Lost Hours, based on a secret, daring and audacious glider operation into France in the early hours of DDay 6th June 1944.

The main protagonist, Richard Underberg, is a psychiatrist who, piqued by the effects of his own family's Holocaust experiences, embarks on a mission to visit the sites of the Allied forces' glider landings on the beaches of Normandy six decades previously. His purpose is to try to help his WWII veteran patient to find inner peace, by uncovering information which could possibly fill the gaps in the old man's memory. Eidelman's psychiatric expertise wraps itself around the various themes that emerge as the story progresses.
It is obvious to the reader that the writing of this attention-sustaining story followed exhaustive personal research by Eidelman. It also reveals how unresolved issues of a psychiatrist may be awakened under such trying circumstances as those revealed in "The Lost Hours".
From the beginning to the last pages of this book the reader's focus is drawn compellingly to the pages of narrative over which one's eyes easily glide.
I highly recommend that anyone with a predilection for a heart-throbbing, yet poignant story, should read this book.
This book touches on so many keystones of this incredible victory of the human spirit over evil, that I simply couldn't put it down,
Simply put - a great read!
