David Field
Momentous events await fifteen-year-old Tommy when he goes on holiday to a chateau in the south of France near Toulouse. He sees a strange picture of an unknown and beautiful young woman and is magnetically drawn to her image. Suddenly, he's 400 years back in the past, in the France of 1599. In that faraway time he finds the living likeness of the picture in the form of Eloise. They run off for a series of hair-raising adventures together, falling in love in the process. Dynastic struggles, power-hungry bishops, outlaws living in the marshes, demonic caves, murderous clergymen and strolling players form the stock-in-trade of this wonderful historical romance. Its swift action and bubbling humour are matched by the author's canny portrayal of two teenagers meeting across four centuries. And how does Tommy resolve the culture clash? With his mobile phone, of course - another hero of the tale! Read on, and look out for more adventures from the masterful pen of David Field as the story of Tommy and Eloise spills over into the twenty-first century in a volume to follow. David Field lives with his wife and two children in Aarhus, Denmark.

Profile Picture

Tommy is a normal 15 year-old boy living in 21st century England. He lives with his Mummy and Daddy, and they go on vacations just like all families do. While on vacation in a chateau in France, something strange happens. The house is more like a castle, with big towers and old pictures; and one of these pictures draws Tommy's attention more then the others. It's a picture of a girl-roughly Tommy's age- from over 400 years ago. The strange part happens next; and Tommy is magnetically drawn back into the year 1599.
