Geary and her daughter Merritt have recently arrived on the island for the summer to participate in the reopening and dedication of a long abandoned rural church built far out on the desolate moors some fifty years earlier by
Elizabeth's eccentric grandfather, Matthew Fox. What follows can only be described as a virtual treasure hunt replete with impossible apparitions,
obscure clues, false leads, surprising discoveries and a cast of local Village characters each holding partial ill-fitting pieces to the growing puzzle of the chapel's existence.
Duncan Dempster is a freelance writer who, having spent the better part of a lifetime employing words and language as a matter of vocational expedience, has discovered late in life the joys and challenges of juggling words and ideas in a purely avocational mode. A retired career Naval officer and later a part-time property manager and internet technician, he is now fully retired in the institutional sense and totally immersed in his newfound career of developing his dream retirement home on the Big Island of Hawaii. His passion for writing in general and fiction writing in particular knows few bounds save those imposed by the necessary daily routines of eating, sleeping and exercising, and even then, words and ideas rattle around in his head like stray atoms vying for escape.
