Oh Tink, were you a dream or real?
Dover, DE (Vocus) October 7, 2010
Creating a unique twist to the story of the much-loved boy who never grew up, author Linda Laird whisks a fanciful yet very engaging version of Peter Pan. With the release of her newly published book, The Eternal Pan, she brings the magic of youth and life to young and old readers alike.
The Eternal Pan begins with Pete Panning as an old, lonely man who tries to recall the magic of his youth. His wife and two children gone, he thought he could use some magic in his life, or at least the warmth of it. This old man, over eighty, began to think of that poor, lovely lady—the fairy he once knew as Tink. “Oh Tink, were you a dream or real?,” he asks himself. Determined to find the answer, he begins his quest.
Pete, having once been a brilliant lawyer, sought the assistance of detective agencies to help him find this small fairy. Sadly, all of them thought of him as a decrepit old man with delusions. Psychics and fortune-tellers were his last resort, but Pete could not find one that was genuine and skilled enough to guide him on his quest.
Luckily, one of his old buddies helped him get in touch with a police psychic by the name of Norma Contra. It was with her help that Pete knew what to look for and where to begin. But can he still find Tink and Neverland after all these years? The Eternal Pan tells all.
This book will be featured at this year’s New York Library Association Book Exhibit in Saratoga Springs, NY on November 2-5, 2010.
