After being involved in an well-known scandal, Edith White runs out of Newbury to start a new life in New Scotland. However, the secrets from her past will never leave her. She will have to hide them and, at the same time, fight to improve her future and ammend errors from the past.

Meanwhile, in London, Richard Tatfield, an inspector for the Metaphysics Office, is investigating old Professor Dalmar and a secret about his time at Oxford University. He soon leaves on a demand in search of answers that are hard to find.

This story takes place on an alternative world where Great Britan has a Republic system and where technology production is taking an heavy toll on the atmosphere. This is what I call a story that mixes up a little bit of themes we can find on House of Cards, Outlander, Downton Abbey and Golden Compass.

The Way Station

Submitted: August 18, 2016

This is a book I've been writing in Portuguese (my native language) since NaNoWriMo 2013. Even though I've finished it already, I'm editing and changing some plots. However, that is not an easy task. After struggling during the last few months to continue this story, I've decided to translate the first chapter and to publish it here. I hope to see if it gets any reactions, reviews and suggestions. For starters, this is a story about Parallel Worlds, happening in a world similar to ours but slightly different and where I explore different themes I really like. In my head, this is what would happen if Downton Abbey, Outlander, House of Cards and The Golden Compass met on the same screen.

Excuse me if you find any grammatical errors in the next paragraphs. As I've said, this is not my native language.

I hope you like it! Read Chapter
