The Journey to Nura
About the Book
Is there intelligent life out in space? Are there other planets like Earth with beings like us or similar to us? We estimate some of the stars we see on bright nights are hundreds of light years away. Did God make them just for us to look at, or could there be life out there?
Jim, the middle-aged widower in our story, confronts these ideas when he meets Nena, a lady in her mid-twenties from another world. They have a problem on their world and have come to Earth looking for help. Jim is tempted to leave his dull life here an go with this beautiful young woman to a world 6 trillion miles away.
Come an go with us, as we follow Jim and his new friends on this adventure of a lifetime. There is work to do before they can go and there is the adventure of traveling in a space ship on the "Journey to Nura." There is gold and diamonds to sell and supplies to acquire, and the job is not easy since they must keep the mission a secret.
As they work through the problems and study each other's worlds, we find Jim and Nena falling in love. Jim studies a new ship that can travel at four times the speed of light. THE JOURNEY TO NURA is an adventure, love story and science-fiction novel all rolled into one. This book only covers a few months in 1994, but book two (THE YEARS AT NURA) should be released later this year, and covers 34 years of their lives on Nura. The third book, (THE SPACE TRAVELERS FROM NURA) will be released in 2004, and will cover another 60 years in the life of these new friends and lovers.
