Fans of the Television show "Under the Dome" will like this story. The author certainly has a vivid and fertile imagination. The main characters are caught up in events of many twists and turns that will keep you guessing. They get to travel back in time with the hope to change their destinies. The author's descriptions of places and events are exceptional. For example: "Traces of past lives in the wooden paneling were trying to claw their way out, desperate for recognition".

“Chanctonbury” is a big story with many exciting twists and turns about the parallel lives of 5 main characters, whose paths innocuously cross one day on a hill, in unexpected circumstances. Thrown together by dark forces, they question the purpose of their lives, and are taken back in time to face a myriad of challenges, which ultimately reshape their lives.
