What readers are saying:
"I thoroughly enjoyed reading this book and I found it incredibly moving at times and thought provoking, especially the POW camps sections. I felt the storyline was very good and Faith Mortimers's descriptive and very readable style of writing added much interest to the story."
"…a skillfully crafted historical novel that spans two generations. A powerful and emotional read…"
"What I think is particularly notable - and what is true of all of Faith's writing - is the great talent she has for description as well as story telling. In 'The Seeds of Time', this is revealed in the wonderful, vivid descriptions of the peril and beauty of being at sea with all the dangers this involves."
