Overview

Tom Taylor lives in England. From London, he travels to Stonehenge, a prehistoric stone circle in Wiltshire, and his life is changed forever. He is forcefully thrown back into the past and has to live on his wits and a stubborn refusal to ever accept defeat. Three thousand years before his time he meets Rosetta, the daughter of the Egyptian Pharaoh, Hatshepsut, and his future true love. He also meets Gomm, the High Priest, who becomes his enemy who is cursed to pursue and kill him.
The great events and characters of the past leave their mark on him and on his story. He is transported to Greece and the days of Alexander the Great. The first Emperor of China tries to kill him. King Alfred of England and the Vikings clash under his gaze, and the Russian Tsar, Nicholas loses his wife to Rasputin, and his empire to the German Kaiser..
All of this time the Guardians watch and wait. The living souls rule the Universe, but the dark souls are gathering. The Earth is the cradle which decides the fate of the billions of souls who live on the web. Tom and Rosetta are the pawns. They accept the challenge- and change the course of the Universe forever

About the Author

Peter Chapman lives in Wheathampstead, a rural village in Hertfordshire, England. I have worked in and visited over one hundred countries as a professional travel organiser and traveller to remote places. The places portrayed in the novel are scenes from my past and, as such, I hope that I have been faithful to my memory and to the countries concerned.
This story is factual in terms of the historical characters and events, although I am not aware that Tom, Rosetta or Gomm ever existed, except in my imagination.
The book has been carefully edited by my love of forty years, Carolyn, although I am inclined to meddle after the event and have doubtless introduced errors, which are entirely my own and for which I accept responsibility, as also for all the words in the book.
We have two sons. Alex, who lives in Sheffield, a northern city in England. He is an Osteopath and fitness enthusiast. Stephen, who live in Hertfordshire. He is a geophysical surveyor and lover of everything outdoors.
I love writing for its own sake rather than in any great expectation of reward, although the notification of a sale always brings a little surge of satisfaction. Today, I am painting. Tomorrow, I will be seeking a greater understanding of the piano, and perhaps the next day a little more reading of my favourite subject of Archaeology. Life can get very busy.
If you like your stories to be short and sweet ther are six which comprise this book and are available separately through Amazon Kindle and the book store.

Land of the Ka
