EDDIES IN TIME

by Taylor Uzzell

Overview
" EDDIES IN TIME is an original exploration of love, human connections, and life's relationship to time. A moving moment for me was when Carrie had the opportunity to hold herself as a baby, bridging the past and the present, but also bringing unexpected consequences." " Well written story which truly captures the essence of family, love, and sacrifice. Well worth the read! " "A must read for anyone who has ever wished they could change the past." " A thought provoking story of one man's journey as he deals with profound grief after the death of the love of his life -- an unbearable loss that he believes has ended a relationship of more than fifty-eight years." " Unlike the typical time-travel tale replete with unrealistic 'Marvelized' super heroes confronting monster villains in monster machines, EDDIES IN TIME is refreshingly different. The book's everyday characters are authentic and relatable. Relationships are real and familiar. The eddy-method for traveling to the past is unique but plausible. This is an exceptional journey, well worth the reader's time."
Description
More than just another adventure of time travel to the past, EDDIES IN TIME chronicles the extraordinary love story of a decades long relationship that neither death nor time could destroy. After the death of his precious wife of fifty-eight years, Grayson Warren must face a world without Adeline in it -- a life that has lost all meaning and purpose, one filled with unbearable loneliness and dark emptiness. His Adeline is gone, gone from his today and from all his tomorrows. All that's left are cherished memories of their yesterdays together. For the remainder of his time on earth, Grayson and Adeline can never be together again – or can they? When Grayson's scientifically gifted grandson, Oliver, reveals to Granddaddy his remarkable discovery of a method to travel back in time based on principles similar to the ebb and flow of a river eddy, the old man's hope of seeing Adeline again is revived. But to accomplish such a momentous scientific achievement, numerous significant obstacles will need to be addressed, and many painful decisions affecting both past and future relationships will need to be carefully considered. However, it will be those unknown, unplanned happenings that will present the biggest challenges and greatest dangers for Grayson and those he loves – and for others in the past. This story could never have been told without the assistance of grandsons: Oliver Hickman, Finn Hickman, and Jett Hickman
About the author
Taylor Uzzell has traveled much, but has been blessed with deep small-town North Carolina roots. He was born in Hamlet, raised in Laurinburg and Cary (small back then), briefly lived in Holly Springs, and now resides in Apex. These places he has called home may have been small, but his life experiences and his many blessings have been BIG. Taylor has been married to Susan for fifty-seven years. She is the love of his life and the model for Adeline, the central character in EDDIES IN TIME. Taylor is the father of a beautiful daughter, Carrie, and for twenty-two years until his death in 2002, a special son, Tay. Three of Taylor's greatest blessings are his grandsons, Oliver, Finn and Jett whose personalities (along with daughter Carrie and son-in-law Jim) are reflected throughout the pages of this book. This endeavor has purposefully been a "family affair" with the entire family contributing to its completion. EDDIES IN TIME is Taylor's second novel. His first, SUN RISE, is Book 1 in The Shrouded Way Saga trilogy. Book 2, THROUGH THE FOG, will be coming soon.
