Recent release “Uncommon Life” from Page Publishing author Timothy Goodyer is a richly woven story following Ederic, the orphaned peasant son of Ederant from the shire of Eder, who rises from his lowly station to become the king of England’s most trusted warlord toward the end of the first millennium—but there remains a debt to a stranger from his past that led to this uncommon rise, which might cost him everything to repay.

Timothy Goodyer, a lifelong reader and first-time author born in Chicago, Illinois, grew up in Michigan, and lives in Waukesha County, Wisconsin, has completed his new book “Uncommon Life”: an epic period war novel with an unlikely hero.

Author Goodyer writes about Ederic’s humble beginnings: “The life of Ederic, son of Ederant, had followed a pattern of cycles. The early memories of his life with his parents made the first cycle. He could only remember his last few years with them. The second cycle of his life passed at the orphanage in Rivergate, where life was all want and hard toil. The only merit in the time spent there was that he was taught to read and write and do sums. A fact that puzzled him since none of the other orphans had been given such lessons. Now the third cycle of his life began. He would now pass from boy to man. A cycle spent at the foot of a man who knew all the things he needed to know. The first thing Ederic learned was that hard work could bring good fortune. He also learned of his place in the world as a peasant farmer.”

Published by New York City-based Page Publishing, Timothy Goodyer’s new book is an ultimately inspiring one that also captures the imagination in its rendition of old England at war. The story of Ederic’s rising beyond the position he was born into and the tragedies and debts he incurs along the way up accurately depicts, too, what it can take for one to change one’s destiny.

Readers who wish to experience this dramatic work can purchase “Uncommon Life” at bookstores everywhere, or online at the Apple iTunes store, Amazon, Google Play, or Barnes and Noble.
