Item Description...
Jamie Stuart, ruthlessly and single-mindedly climbing his way to the pinnacle of success as an architect in Glasgow, suddenly finds himself alone. Not that he hadn't always been alone, but he had believed in a future with Annie Camerson - as long as he didn't have to make it anytime soon. Without warning, but through every fault of his own, he has no one, and both his life and his work begin to crumble.

Publishers Description
A mix of love story, Scottish myth, and church history, this novel poses the question: What happens when we find redemption and then fear we have lost it for all time? Brown is a pastor, theologian, teacher, and author of several best-sellers from WJK.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
Sweet, but Overly Sentimental  Jul 23, 2001
This little book (generously type-set to make 167 pages) is set for the most part on the Hebridean island of "Erinsay" (not to be confused with the real island of Eriskay). Its hero is Jamie Stuart, a greedy, selfish yuppie at the outset of the book, who travels to Erinsay, miraculously goes back in time, and has a complete change of heart when he falls in love with a woman in the past. The protagonist's transformation is not believable, and the reader has too hard a time forgiving him for his earlier despicable behavior. Ultimately, when he commits his final selfless act, the reader is left feeling grateful but, unfortunately, not really saddened. Also, as a lover of the Hebrides myself (the reason I read the book in the first place) I was disappointed by how the author belittles the people who live there by characterizing them as quaint, superstitious souls--a stereotype that is sadly lacking in truth.
A story of love, longing and sacrifice for the sophisticated  Aug 19, 1999
The author of my Sunday School texts surprised me with this rich tale. He captures the dialogue of the Hebrides so well I begin visualizing the people. The book begins slowly; then, by two-thirds of the way through, I couldn't put it down. Call it a romance if you want to, but I found it far more expansive in that we're led to ponder awhile after we close the cover for the last time.
Love beyond time  Nov 17, 1998
Robert McAfee Brown, one of our greatest theologians, has written his first novel. The book starts in an unrealistic mode, but gets better as Jamie, the main character, travels to the country of Erinsay, and finally to the previous century. This is a story of love, sacrifice, and redemption, not unusual themes for Rev. Brown. The beautiful song the title is taken from is printed on the endcovers of the lovely little book. I recommend it to all who like romance.
A Mysterious Love Story That Lingers in Mind and Heart  Nov 9, 1998
We know Robert McAfee Brown for his theological non-fiction rooted in hard realism. Here he lets loose his vivid imagination to transport us to the Hebrides Islands off Scotland's coast where, even in the 90s, rural, islander folk hold to the supernatural as a natural part of life. Though they live by pagan and Christian tales that most educated, urban Americans quickly dismiss, as the story lured me in I found myself suspending disbelief and asking, What is Brown saying to us? The pondering continues. And because to pause before mystery and discern what love requires are basic human tasks, this book is as valuable as it is enjoyable. Beautifully crafted, these 168 pages are story-driven with interesting, well-drawn characters. The author employs just enough description to help you see what the flawed, young architect around whom he builds his story is experiencing, and sprinkles his narration with apt, often poetic metaphors. While the setting, the dated consciousness and Scottish dialogue, and even Brown's adapted writing style (I kept flashing on Cold Mountain), may strike us as foreign, even eerie, the book offers an engaging, easy read. Because I'd love to see this book gain wide readership, I'm tempted to shout: "GRAPHIC SEX AND VIOLENCE!" Alas, Brown spares us these. But as he takes you through surprising, timely twists toward his "inevitable but unpredictable conclusion," he confronts you with profound passion, wonder, suspense, and the sadness of both life and death. Can you tell? I thoroughly enjoyed this novel.
