What appears to be a tale of progressive development and reversal of a life path in the portrayal of a single individual is, in reality, a quest for answers and a declaration of opinion concerning the questions we ponder. In describing the 78 years of his own chronological development, Dr. Clyde v. Collard has painted a vivid picture of the human condition and the forces explicit in shaping the biological and social existence of each of us. In the generic sense, that which applies to one human applies to all humans. John Donne expressed that sentiment when he wrote, And therefore never send to know for whom the bell tolls; it tolls for thee. The author here states, Look, then into the glass, perceive yourself And now . . . choose.

Elizabeth Scott had never wanted to write a book. She had never even considered such a thing, but suddenly one day she found her head full of ideas about a love so deep and profound that it could span time and unite lovers. She felt compelled to write it down. The more she wrote the more ideas just came to her. She would wake in the night with thoughts and conversations that she had to write in the book. Finally it was fi nished and published. Just a short, time-travel love story, but it had sold beyond her expectations and now she was a famous author. Flying home from a book signing one autumn day, Elizabeth found herself sitting next to a man, who not only looked almost like the picture she had drawn of the main character in her book, but he also had the same name. From that moment on, her future appeared to depend on her past. The problem was, Elizabeth had been adopted and her past was not something she knew. The search for her past and the discoveries she made took her and Dan down a road that brought them closer and closer together. For every adopted person who has wondered about their past, I hope you will enjoy her search. For every one who ever hoped for that special love, but never seem to fi nd, this story may give you hope. Any questions or comments may be directed to the author at [email protected]
