Remembering Eternity is unlike any novel you have ever read; it is a literary, intellectual, and spiritual masterpiece. The book carries its reader on a brilliantly scripted tour of spiritual evolution, lifting her to the stars at one moment and crashing her into oceanic depths at another. In one passage the novel unveils a remarkable theory of artistic creation; in another, it explains the mechanism for music’s power to affect the human soul; in a third, it dissects the momentary perceptual machinery of human beings. Structured in units called “time zones,” the book reveals the secrets to attaining a life burgeoning with unimaginable rapture.
An epic trilogy, Remembering Eternity paints skies, mountains, oceans, and sunrises in colors that dazzle the reader’s inner eye. The trilogy spans the tumultuous period of America from the 1960s through the 1980s. Its scenes are memorable: ecstatic, naked, moonlit dances and thrilling, evasive chases across the rooftops of Brooklyn tenements, and they are replete with unforgettable characters: a bigoted pickup-truck driver armed with a revolver, a delusional prophet ready to drive his car across the Intracoastal Canal, real-life Prince Charmings and Helens of Troy. The novel ranges from the sandy beaches of California to the magic-mountain empyrean of the Swiss Alps; its action is set in cracker-box suburban homes, elite university campuses, and palatial European hotels. The books’ language is rich and evocative: readers literally see scenes coming to life in their imaginations.
But, above all else, Remembering Eternity charts a path to human enlightenment, to permanent peace and happiness. It succeeds in doing so by weaving strands of spiritual gold through a rollicking, sprawling tale of adventure.

“The Path Less Taken”
Five Star Review on Amazon By L. Tarabour
In today’s chaotic world we all yearn for something different. We are looking for a sign that perhaps there is a permanent reality that is just beyond our grasp. We seek meaning beyond our day to day existence in a world, where value is easily measured in dollars .The author here has done yeoman’s work suggesting that this reality is right there. It is something we are innately born with but is lost due to the abrasiveness of the lives we lead. The book give us clues on how this can be recaptured.
It is characterized as the “worlds longest spiritual novel”. That may very well be true but it is also a guidebook into acquiring a unique frame of reference. A frame that may bring peace and mindful acceptance that this artifice we call our lives may not be the only path.
I strongly encourage everyone to make the investment of time. You will not be disappointed,
