Home To Oblivion
Roger Whittlesey
HOME TO OBLIVION leads the reader from a pivotal Revolutionary War sea battle to a mysterious island where time seems irrelevant. Narrator Prescott Fielding, a 12-year-old ship's boy from 1779, meets and befriends Caleb Thompson, a 17-year-old U. S. Marine, who was fighting on the rice paddies of Vietnam, in 1968, before suddenly appearing on the island. Later, Julian Woodgate, a young World War I British Army code-breaker, appears and upsets the comfortable routine that Prescott and Caleb have created. How can people born 200 years apart exist together at one time? Are they living in a time warp? Outside of time? Is it the afterlife? A series of events--both natural and unnatural--convince the characters to travel inland to seek answers. Prescott soon discovers the island is far more dangerous than he ever could have imagined, and standing between him and his dream to go home is a powerful and evil force.
