Life can be very lonely when you have secrets. Oliver knows that better than most. Being over one hundred years old and still looking the same as he did back in 1834, most of his existence is spent moving from one place to the next in hope of hiding his immortality. Carrying the guilt of his father’s death is exhausting and Oliver wishes for death to release him. Then, the wayward Tabitha enters his life, wanting him to take her on a journey through his history. In return, she’ll teach him that love can conquer anything in its path.

Excerpt
Morning dew held heavy in the chill autumn air. The sky was blood red as the sun rose over the hills providing  a picturesque background for the small, humble village. A regal oak tree stood in the middle of the village square, seemingly holding court as the villagers surrounded its proud trunk, horror apparent on their faces. In turn surrounding them, stood a series of lowly houses, one of which slowly crumbled into ashes as flames danced eerily around it, embers floating into the slowly brightening sky.

Looking down at the body of his father laying on the ground underneath the oak, the young man felt the full force of overpowering despair. It may as well be his own body lying there while the flames continued to practice their evil custom of destruction behind him.

The gathered crowd was silent,their judgement falling heavily. No matter what crime had been committed, no man deserved to be killed by his own son. His mother’s body continued to burn, her soul having moved on without being subjected to the horrors now playing out in the village square. Her daughter, now orphaned by the hand of her own brother, was in the early stages of shock. Unable to cry, she stood shivering and waiting. Waiting for somebody, anybody to do something that would make this nightmare stop. Her heart slowly broke as the realisation that nothing could reverse what had just played out embedded itself deep within her.

As the fire started to spread, people broke out of their state of incredulity; this had happened and justice must reign. Disbelief quickly changing to hysteria, the young man saw his chance to run. He took it. Ignoring his sister’s cries for him to return, he ran for his life.

Definitely different
My first Kindle read, very different to my usual choice. Really enjoyed it, couldn't wait to unravel the mystery but the twists and turns kept me engrossed. This is the first book I've read from this author and will look for more from her. Would definitely recommend if you want a change from the usual type of romantic, girly type book. ~ Gail, Amazon UK

Loved it!
I do not read many books but this one was recommended to me by a friend.
The characters are really believable and the backdrop was very well written with the flavour of the village coming to life.
I found that this story had enough twists to keep me interested from start to finish, I will be recommending to others. ~ Eddie, Amazon UK

Fast-paced, intriguing and wonderful
From the powerful prologue that hooked me instantly, I was transfixed by this powerful, fast-paced and unusual love story desperately wanting to know more about Oliver, his tragic past and the reason he was still alive a hundred and forty years after the dramatic events of 1834 had changed his life so completely. His relationship with Tabitha once she's old enough to introduce himself to her was engrossing and I truly couldn't put this book down until I'd read to the brilliant ending . . . I loved this book and can't wait to read further books by Kay Brooks. ~ Georgina, Amazon UK

This is an emotional journey through the life of a man carrying with him the weight of the world, and then some. Oliver and Tabitha form a strong bond which readers will instantly be pulled into. Once started, it will be difficult to put this book down. ~ Heart of Fiction
