– Lansing State Journal
“This is a most compelling book. It pulls you in to a fascinating concept from the beginning…. I give this book 5 stars.”
“Once I got into this title I couldn’t put it down. I enjoyed Jacob’s voice and found myself thoroughly drawn into his adventures…. Southard has a strong voice of his own. The local buzz on this is well-deserved and I’m glad I got my hands on it. Southard’s an up and coming (and Lansing-based) writer to watch.”
-Capital Area District Library
Jacob’s life changed in a single moment when, as a toddler, he walked through his bedroom door only to find himself in the office of a British officer in Capetown, 1870. This would begin a thirty-year journey which would take him from ancient to future civilizations, and innumerable places and times in between. Through all of his travels, Jacob seeks for the purpose of his predicament, the significance of his life with all of its joys and suffering, loneliness and impermanence.
