What if Jesus hadn’t been crucified?
For two thousand years the religions of earth have been united in peace and harmony, and humanity enveloped in Nirvana. But in the early decades of the twentieth century, natural disasters, famine, disease and economic collapse bring catastrophe and a fledgling Nazi Party sweeps to power. Now, almost a century later, their brutal persecution of millions is a never-ending holocaust.
Yet a few heroes remain.
Leigh Wilson, inventor of one of the most significant discoveries in human history and a leading member of the Reich’s Technical Division has kept a secret all her life. But plunged into the aftermath of the cold-blooded murder of a Nazi official, she is forced to make a choice. Will she use her power to reset history? Will she destroy what she loves to save what she can only imagine?
A Time to Every Purpose is a thrilling mix of science and action, good versus evil, and the eternal question all humans face: Is this my time to act?
***** A clash of science fiction and alternative history makes A Time To Every Purpose rock along, from the opening scenes of unfurling Swastikas over London to the shattering climax of a world torn asunder. Detailed, grounded in frighteningly believable shades of what might have been, what is and what could still be, this debut novel is not to be missed.
***** “A thriller with heart… Gifted storytelling combines with meticulous scientific and historical research to produce a memorable and profoundly moving story…” (Elaine Fry, The West Australian)
***** “A Time To Every Purpose by Ian Andrew deals with huge concepts, looking at the broad sweep of history… a well-executed alternate history novel with some great action scenes.” (John Wyatt, News International, UK)
***** With the exception of some Ken Follett, I have not really read much historical fiction, but this mixes that with science fiction, and both Ken and HG Wells would, I’m sure, be proud had they written this book. (V Magill, UK)
***** Very cleverly crafted, beautifully phrased, technically adept, and this guy really does know how to tell a story. It was very difficult to put down, and I ended up staying up late 5 nights in a row to finish it. (Amazon UK)
***** The reader truly connects with the characters and you find yourself hoping that they will uncover some way out of the terrible circumstances in which they find themselves. Although not part of the main theme, on a deeper level the book also opens up underlying concerns about the rights and wrongs of the use of force by governments, manipulation of media and exertion of control of the population by control of information and employment of violence – all very thought-provoking. This is an excellent first novel by an author with no small degree of promise. (Amazon UK)
