Monday, January 6 Review at Reading the Past. Labels: December , Elizabeth St. Her salacious past has left historians blushing and uncomfortable. Tales of her shamelessness have survived for centuries, and yet her accomplishments as an empress are unparalleled.

She has written as a hobby for over thirty years including poetry, essays, fiction, humor, and non-fiction. She lives in Iowa near the Mississippi River with her family. Outlander meets Birdsong is this haunting debut timeslip novel, where a strange twist of fate connects a British soldier fighting in the First World War and a young woman living in modern-day England a century later. Shell shocked and suffering from hysterical blindness he can no longer see his own face, let alone paint, and life seems increasingly hopeless. A century later in , medical student Louisa Casson has just lost her beloved grandmother — her only family.
Heartbroken, she drowns her sorrows in alcohol on the South Downs cliffs — only to fall accidentally part-way down. Doctors fear she may have attempted suicide, and Louisa finds herself involuntarily admitted to Coldbrook Hall — now a psychiatric hospital, an unfriendly and chaotic place. Inside, lying on the floor, is a mysterious, sightless young man, who tells her he was hurt at the Battle of the Somme, a WW1 battle a century ago. And that his name is Lieutenant Robert Lovett…. Two people, two battles: one against the invading Germans on the battlefields of France, the other against a substandard, uncaring mental health facility in modern-day England.
Two journeys begun a century apart, but somehow destined to coincide — and become one desperate struggle to be together. Part WW1 historical fiction, part timeslip love story — and at the same time a meditation on the themes of war, mental illness, identity and art — Beyond The Moon sweeps the reader on an unforgettable journey through time.
An intelligent read, perfect for book clubs. It is also an unflinching portrait of the horrors of war, and a look at the torturous extremes a human soul can endure. It is a sonnet to the transformative power of love, even as it is also a criticism of the futility and pointless destructiveness of war. Beyond The Moon is her first novel. She lives in Ealing, London with her husband and two children.
