A compelling portrait of people in a strange world, The Climb To Eternity is packed with action and emotion. Thomas is both curious and afraid, and obstacles beset his search. An odd companion, Sammy, guides him along a steep path up a colossal mountain, and there's a constant clash of wills. His encounter with a lovely woman, Janna, leads him to an alpine village whose endearing and tormenting residents sidetrack his mission until unexpected twists impel him to keep going higher. Out of the struggle to complete their dangerous journey, real meaning slowly emerges, and as all three climb the mountain in pursuit of its mysteries, they discover that the deepest secrets are lodged within themselves.
Designed to challenge preconceptions as well as to entertain, The Climb To Eternity flows out of author Rick McManus' own struggle following the passing of his younger brother. This powerfully moving story is also meant to comfort those who mourn.
