Free sample

An enriching 21st century work of original philosophical fiction ideal for throwing some light on various philosophical concerns of the individual; encouraging group discussion and inviting scholarly exploration.

A delightful prose-poetic work which begins in Part One on the beautiful isle of Éire (Ireland) with the world of the invisible presenting itself in person to the world of the visible. The focus then shifts in Part Two to the Middle East, to a mythical queendom called Ebla set in pre-Qur’an, Bible and Torah times. The reader will be given to meet such memorable characters as Queen Ave Éire Fragrance, King Ave Éire Sacred Manuscripts, Crown Princess Graceful, and Queen Ebla Praiseworthy to name but a few. Seekers of wisdom, beauty, and love; seekers of spiritual contentment will find this progenitive work greatly to their liking for it is in all respects a fragrant cornucopia of stories and narratives all richly and exquisitely seasoned with spiritual and philosophical elegance and eloquence. This is a creative attempt at cultural bridge building; connecting peoples and ideas by means of mythologies in the making. One hundred coloured maps, and three illustrations add to its charming mystique. (Note: In the hardback edition the maps and illustrations are in greyscale.)

The fonts and page numbering in this ebook correspond to the 2017 hardback edition.
