Although I accept that there must be some logical and scientific explanation to this phenomena, I first noticed the star when on holiday in Tenerife a couple of years back. It was there every morning slightly before sunrise, and shining brighter than all the rest in the eastern sky. As the sun rose, seemingly from out of the sa, the star in its turn rose obediently higher into the heavens, and then once the sun became visible upon the horizon the star disappeared altogether. The time of year was just prior to Christmas. Later I had the opportunity to revisit the same place in the summer months, but then although one could view many other stars, my own particular star seemed to have disappeared!
Strangely enough it was the sighting of this star that first planted the seeds for this story, which I hope you will enjoy.
My thanks once again to my husband Jim for his patience in proof reading, and also in the composition of the music to go with the book and also to my grandson Laurence who is far more technologically equipped that I can ever hope to be! And thanks also to your good selves for reading the novel. Once again I hope you enjoy it!
