BOSTON (PRWEB) May 27, 2020
David Boyd, D.Phil., academic novelist who served as dean at Northeastern University in Boston, Massachusetts, has released his first fiction novel, “The Turnstile of Time.” The novel chronicles the life journey of Nathan Lee and his quest for love, knowledge and meaningful relationships. From Oxford to the city streets of Boston to a ranch in Montana, the reader is regaled with uniquely descriptive passages, witty humor and heartfelt human emotions.
Nathan Lee, an American, begins his search for happiness as a graduate student at Oxford University. Here he finds intellectual inspiration and befriends a classmate whose bawdy behavior and disruptive shenanigans cause turmoil throughout the University. Their unlikely bond endures for a lifetime. He also falls in love with a mysterious and alluring English woman. She is the first of three with whom his life will intertwine. In Boston, he must confront a sorrowful interlude and loss, but the wild west ultimately provides him with inner peace and fulfillment.
“This story begins with a young man in his twenties. It follows his professional and emotional coming of age over a span of nearly fifty years,” said Boyd. “The characters that Nathan Lee meets along the way explore the critical ties that bind a loving relationship. My hope is to remind readers of the value in human relationships and offer a sense of inspiration so that they, like me, can walk again where they once ran...oftentimes with a smile and the hint of risqué humor.”
Boyd’s book is available for purchase on Amazon.
