The Past is the Future
A young physicist, Sandy Say, is dispatched to a Scottish highland estate to secretly decipher a decrepit manuscript that may hold the key to reinventing the 21st century, devastated by a series of solar storms. There he finds whispers of a reincarnated wizard, a hidden laboratory that is said to be the gate to the Otherworld, and a girl.
A Summer in Amber is set in Scotland and England in the not too distant future, after a series of extremely powerful solar storms has laid to waste the modern world of cell phones, computers satellites, and even the power grids. Britain exists as an eclectic mix of the 21st and 19th century, with both steam engines, and pocket computers. A Summer in Amber is a quiet, enchanting novel of adventure and romance, with a unique steampunk air.
