SIX EPOCHS, TEN LIVES INTERSECTING AT A SINGLE PLACE
2013: Al Cohen, an American in search of his European heritage. 1944-1946: Friedrich Werner, an officer of the Wehrmacht and later a prisoner of war. His wife Greta, clinging to what remains of her life in war-torn Berlin. 1799: Suzanne de Beaubigny, a royalist refugee from revolutionary France. 1517: Richard Mabon, a Catholic priest on pilgrimage to Jerusalem with his secretary, Nicholas Ahier. 1160: Raoul de Paisnel, a knight with a dark secret walking through Spain with his steward, Guillaume Bisson. 4000 BC: Egrasté, a sorceress, and Txeru, a man on an epic voyage. Transgressions, reconciliations and people caught on the wrong side of history. Omphalos. A journey through six thousand years of human history.
Praise for Omphalos
