The Book: The Devil’s Graveyards
The Author: T. L. Parker
The Story: A handful of people from across the globe and spanning four centuries, their lives bound together by fate, are guided toward the one thing they all have in common…the island.
A sultry breeze whispers warnings through the palms as a wounded sixteenth-century settler enters the island’s dark cavern, disturbing ancient secrets. Amid intertwined tendrils of vines growing without sunlight, he finds a mysterious power source which will change his life forever. His prayers are answered until he loses the woman he loves. The gift becomes a curse as he walks the earth alone, haunted by her memory.
Four hundred years into the future, an aging scientist loses his job, his health, and his wife. Approaching the eventide of life, he dreams of youth and yearns for second chances. When his team discovers the island on an old map, he uses an emerging technology to harness the earth’s energy in an attempt to change the past.
The island is an eternal curse for some. For others, it is a new beginning. In a world where greed is a constant threat, the love of a beautiful woman must link them together in an adventure that defies the logics of time.

Review by January Gray: A mysterious island, time dimensions, lives interwoven…this tightly written book hooks you at the first sentence and draws you into a mysterious world. Based on an old, true mystery, this fiction book combines both fact and fiction beautifully.
The characters are strong and relatable and you will not be able to read fast enough as each moment draws you in deeper and makes you anticipate what is going to happen next.
This book is definitely going on my READ AGAIN list! I look forward to reading more from this Author.
Review by Dennis Cardiff: A thought provoking, four dimensional, tapestry of lives and relationships interwoven then separated by time. The writing is superb and the plot is riveting. Action, suspense, love and abuse of power all play a part to drive this fantastic novel.
The bibliography at the back adds credibility and interest to a subject that intrigues and questions. I loved this book.
