"An enchanting, whirlwind tale of romance and adventure." - BookBub

Can a trip of a lifetime save a troubled marriage? When Edward and Kara embark on a tour around the world, they inadvertently shatter the boundaries of time -- and encounter mysterious men with a connection to Kara's soul.

After getting blacklisted from the rich world of venture capital, twenty-nine-year-old Edward Vaughan will do anything to avoid telling Kara what happened. Even if it means agreeing to her dream of bicycling around the world. Kara, tired of being married to a workaholic, was readying for divorce. Now, she’s packing her bags for the trip of a lifetime. Together, they pedal away from Seattle, headed east on the open road across America to Europe, and beyond.

The couple's decision reverberates across the centuries, breaking the bonds of time, and thrusts Kara into the arms of a Florentine artist claiming to be her soulmate from long ago.

As the deceptions mount with each passing mile, Edward finds himself trapped in a battle with a past life over an eternal love. Will he learn the errors of his ways and become the man Kara craves? Or will she give into temptation and risk everything in pursuing her soul's desire.

TAILWINDS PAST FLORENCE is a road-tripping love story with a time travel twist, landing readers in the saddle of a page-turning adventure.

About the Author

From the cobbled streets of Tuscany to the waterfalls of Kaua'i, DOUG WALSH combines his love of travel with a fascination for how romantic relationships respond to the improbable. Originally from New Jersey, Walsh moved to the Pacific Northwest in 2002, several years after marrying his college sweetheart. He's since traveled to over 30 countries and nearly all 50 states, acquiring the inspiration and richness he imparts on his novels.

As comfortable in the lodge as in the wilds, Walsh has combined his varied passions into a writing career that spans two decades. His debut novel, TAILWINDS PAST FLORENCE, a romantic adventure with a time travel twist, was directly inspired by his round-the-world bicycle tour. Prior to his foray into fiction, Walsh authored over one hundred officially licensed video game strategy guides. His bestselling memoir, THE WALKTHROUGH: INSIDER TALES FROM A LIFE IN STRATEGY GUIDES, chronicles his years in this secretive corner of the multibillion-dollar industry.

Walsh's work-in-progress promises to take readers to one of his favorite corners of Hawaii in a thrilling romantic adventure. Look for it in 2021.
