Synopsis

An ancient world comes alive in a Greek fishing village. While exhuming human remains within a collapsed Minoan temple, a respected archaeologist senses a need to look beyond the bones and shards of his discovery. When he digs deeper into the mysteries of the mountain, there are unexpected consequences for himself and the small Greek fishing village below. When death descends, supersititious villagers cry out to bury the discovery and "let the dead rest". The secrets from 1628BC slowly emerge within two alternating and parallel stories 4000 years apart. The lives from an ancient and modern world converge in a tale of conflict between tradition and reason, science and mystical longing while digging at the crossroads of time. Silver Prize Winner: Independent Publishers Book Award USA. 'Great writing that steers us into the deepest of human mysteries. Morris merges time and place, death and spirit, knowledge and joy in a seamless sensibility that carries us to the sweet capitulation of human life.' - Tom Flood, winner of Australia's premier literary award, The Miles Franklin Award. 'All of the intrigue of a Dan Brown novel, but with style, substance, depth and luminosity.' - Desney King, writer and editor. 'I was drawn into the vortex of one of the most violent natural disasters in human history and was haunted by its vivid myriad voices. Absolutely magic.' - Marcus Meinhold, Poet 'Falling Feathers'
