In the spirit of The Notebook and The Time Traveler’s Wife comes Robert Barclay’s haunting and romantic novel of passion, destiny, loss and an eternal love that will bring two people together across time.

His name was Garrett Richmond and he had always wanted to live by the ocean. So when the opportunity to buy—and renovate—the old home known as Seaside arrived, he leapt at the chance. Never mind that his friends and family thought he was crazy, he knew he could return this lonely mansion, worn by time, wind, and neglect, to its former beauty. But Seaside was more than just a project; it was spot that had called to him his entire life.

And then one night he saw her . . .

Her name is Constance Elizabeth Canfield and she tells him Seaside has been her home for over 150 years. But Constance is no ghost; rather, she claims that she has been somehow magically trapped between this life and the next. At first, Garrett can’t believe her crazy story—the woman had to be lying! And yet, there was something about Constance that was from another time . . .

Soon this mysterious woman and flesh and blood man share a closeness they cannot deny. But just as their love begins to bloom, Constance’s presence starts mysteriously fading away, soon to be gone forever. Is their love doomed—or is it strong enough to transcend time, and even death itself?

Editorial Reviews

Praise for: If Wishes Were Horses:"I normally do not read male authors but someone recommended this and all I can say to her is thank you. This book grabbed me from the first and I did not put it down until I read the last chapter. The characters were such I felt that I had actually met them and acquired life long friends. I am going to give one spoiler and that is to have your hankie handy (maybe even two) because you will definitely need them." - Fresh Fiction on If Wishes Were Horses"[If Wishes Were Horses] will satisfy fans of sweet romances and tender family sagas. Mr. Barclay weaves a quiet tale about people with hearts of gold, each barely coping with inner demons or tragic circumstances, who learn that they need one another in order to find redemption." - New York Journal of BooksPraise for: More Than Words Can Say"Whether it is a fascination with the time period or the fact that we are losing so many of the soldiers of that age, there seems to be more and more books set during World War II. One of the best I've come across lately is More Than Words Can Say. Barclay touches on a plethora of emotions with this fascinating novel. Love, tragedy, loss and redemption are all significant areas as readers travel through history. Barclay's descriptions of the lake area of the serene town of Serendipity are charming, and his cast of characters are very personable and likable. More Than Words Can Say is written for the women's fiction market, and it is a remarkable feat for a man to be able to address the thoughts, feelings and emotions that are key elements in this genre. Barclay handles the task with poise and talent. - Las Vegas Journal Review
