About the Author
Walter grew up in Massachusetts, and attended Bowdoin College in Brunswick, Maine. He was an exchange student in Munich in 1979-80, the year he met his wife, Lisa, who was a graduate student in Switzerland at the time. They married in 1982. Walt considers it the best decision he ever made. He is a baseball fan and a Freemason, and enjoys boardgames and roleplaying games; between those interests and his family, he has a very busy life. Still, he enjoys writing most of all - there's nothing like doing something you love (and getting paid for it.) He qualifys as a recovering programmer (10 years) and also a recovering technical writer (8 years). For the last four years he's been writing full time, which has brought some success and even more satisfaction.

It was very entertaining to read the different sayings and words for things in Scotland (present day idioms) and the seemingly well-researched words and cultural habits in past Europe.
Writing an understandable time-travel novel is very difficult, and although the author makes a valiant attempt, I was simply confused throughout the book. Reconciling the past character with the future character came up lacking. Jumping around with what are dreams/reality/memories/future/present events was frustrating to follow at times. And then all of a sudden, the main character is "back to the future".
I was left feeling like I was missing something. Perhaps the author will write another book about how all those ancient treasures got lost and/or how Rosslyn Chapel came to have the song, tying events together.
I'll read it again in the future some'time', maybe then the story will make better sense.
I would recommend the book to those who like mystery & intrigue. It intertwines discovery of oneself with a mission, breaking the mold of what is normal & know.
