New book tells an engrossing fiction of romance and family struggles wrapped in suspense and mystery.

Fiction enthusiasts and lovers of literature are in for a new suspenseful and mysterious read as author Richard D. Baldwin presents In The Mists of Time. Packed with adorable characters, memorable backdrops, and a storyline that is filled with thrill and mystery, this book will surely give readers an unforgettable reading experience.

A promising young painter, Hawkins Shortreed, and his friend, a gifted sculptor, happen upon an abandoned seaside farm. The stately Eighteenth Century farmhouse, a barn, an overgrown graveyard, a contending granite cliff and the surging ocean create strong illusions of past time and ghosts of past lives. How unsuspecting the artists are of the mystery and the danger attached to this idyllic property two and a quarter centuries before… mystery and danger which they stumble into.

As bits of the mystery come together, so do misty hints of a legendary treasure which induces a burgeoning threat of danger at the hand of a powerful adversary. The remarkable reappearance of Hawkins’ childhood sweetheart blossoms into more than romance. She becomes the innocent means of involving the two artists with others, some good and some less so, who all play important roles in their lives and involve them in the fate of a beautiful forest.

Can the forest be saved? Can they solve the mystery and survive the clandestine physical danger and machinations secretly threatened by a powerful foe? Readers will follow these youthful, inexperienced artists as the present interweaves with the past and their innocent guilelessness is entwined by menacing evil.
