'A grandfather clock has a face and a voice. As its name suggests, it is more than a piece of furniture; it is a member of the family'
Richard C.R. Barder 1983
DECEMBER 1880. There will be no jolly Christmas cheer this year. The harsh winter had descended; snow blankets the ground and the lake is frozen solid. Within the walls of Clement Cottage, the fire is dwindling, its embers barely bright enough to cast the shadow of the broken man upon the wall. Cole is lost in his deep sadness; he has just one heartfelt wish. To be re-united with his beloved, the soulmate so cruelly stolen from him - Cornelia.
A sad mournful ticking comes from a blackened corner of the parlour where a longcase clock is hidden. Tall and stately, noble of face, loud of voice and keeper of great secrets, he is Grandfather Time. Bestowed with the gift of magic from Old Father Time himself, as he begins to chime out the magical hour of midnight, can he grant Cole his wish?
The book also includes An Introduction to Grandfather Time.
A story of love, loss & magic.

About the Author
Rose is a dreamer, preferring a simple & quiet life. Although miles away from family and friends she is never alone, people are after all, only a phone call or email away. Plus she is often tied up, busy visiting new places, and having adventures when lost in a good book.
Working as a school librarian, and sharing her love of books with the children was the best job she ever had. However, life moves on and another chapter was only a page turn away.
Now working in an entirely different library, one for the issuing of 'Medical Equipment'.
Writing has been simply a hobby for Rose until winning a DigiWriting short story competition with 'The Magic of Grandfather Christmas' Now she is inspired to further edit & develop stories she had ideas for, when doing National Novel Writing Month or NaNoWriMo.
