ABOUT Time and Tide: a collection of tales
Time and Tide speaks of change— sometimes a long time coming, sometimes in an instant, but always inevitable. The introductory story “Book of Hours” frames the stories that follow. Helen, an American writer, who has been living in Italy, believes her creativity is gone forever as she returns to her childhood home to care for her dying mother. A curious encounter in a clock shop leads her to a strange experience of inspiration, wherein:
"All manner of dark and light beings began to flash and flutter before her—some in images like holographs, their voices heard in whispers and secret thoughts. When they came, they came like a swift, incoming tide, surreal, filled with beauty and sadness, old regrets and new life—all muddled and intertwined as in a dream….She understood them, loved them. She both dreamed their dreams and was in the dreams—hundreds of them, maybe enough to last a lifetime. She would speak as them and for them."
Each subsequent story in the collection, with Helen as conduit, reveals the strange alchemy of human experience, bringing forth golden revelations.
