— a tale of never ending love spanning many centuries

.

A tale of undying and eternal love, demonstrating the interconnectedness of the Universe through the expression of two people who live many lives over thousands of years


.

“What is a man without the beasts? If all the beasts were gone, men would die from great loneliness of spirit, for whatever happens to the beasts also happens to man. All things are connected. Whatever befalls the earth befalls the children of the earth” — Chief Seattle of the Native American Nation.

WELCOME TO THE MEADOW HOME PAGE 

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

As well as being a great love story, “The Meadow” carries three important messages:

We are connected to all things in all ways, without exception.

As a consequence, all life is eternal as is the love which it creates.

It is necessary for us to move beyond our conditioned way of thinking to comprehend this and allow the seed of curiosity to grow and then we will finally realize that we are responsible for our actions.

AN AGE OLD QUESTION

This video asks the greatest question of all — do you know who you really are? It tries to throw some light on how we act and interact, offering interconnectedness as an answer. This is all to be found in the pages of “The Meadow” novel — a great love story.

When Mike first approached us to read “The Meadow” in the early stages of development, we found it hard to believe that as a young boy visiting the Forum during the Billingham International Folklore Festival, on hearing the International music, an idea was born. From this idea, came this outstanding book of love, re-incarnation, espionage, and deceit. A powerful thought provoking read, you will not be able to put down.

What a fantastic book; couldn’t put it down. Tel Aviv to England had my heart in my mouth! I wish the authors only the greatest success. Readers should know that they will not be able to get any work done. I read two hundred pages in one go. It is thrilling, encapsulating, sad and heart warming.

Get ready for a consciousness shift! “The Meadow” is the most intriguing, mysterious, beautiful love story I’ve ever had the pleasure of reading. I am still amazed that the authors could have brought this masterpiece to life while living an ocean apart. The gamut of emotions they dare the reader to experience makes for a wild, but thrilling ride. “The Meadow” touched the very core of my being and gave me a whole new perspective on all those who have come and gone in my life, the ones that shared beauty with me as well as the ones who caused me pain.

This engrossing journey, through many eras and parts of the world, is suspenseful, emotional, riveting and insightful. The magical MEADOW – fascinating!

“The Meadow” is a poignant story of eternal love that transcends the boundaries of time, age and gender. Interwoven through the intrigue, passion and drama of the many lifetimes of the protagonists, is a deep spiritual thread. A profoundly moving story – written with the emotion and subjectivity of two authors whose intimate awareness of the lives of the various characters suggests first-hand familiarity.

This book of multiple lives and other dimensions has challenged me to look beyond the words on the pages and contemplate if I have indeed visited the Meadow in between previous existences. The Meadow is cleverly written and construes a path of development for the characters through each life. The book is intriguing, enlightening and superbly written! I hope a sequel has been planned for this very advanced work.

IS THIS HOW IT ALL BEGAN?

SMALL

The dream of a four-year-old boy being ordered about by an owl sitting outside on his windowsill. Mike never forgot that dream and to this day he still can't confirm whether this is how it all started. Regardless it served as a wonderful backdrop and became an integral part of The Meadow and created a marvellous opening.

THE FEATHERS

SMALL

The Feathers are central to the story of "The Meadow". One is from an Eagle and the other from an Eagle Owl and these were framed to mark the significance of the story. These feathers will grace the cover of the book so remember them in all their splendour. _________________________

You may be wondering where Harry Potter comes into this. There is an article in one of the pages where "The Meadow" claims to succeed him. See Harry Potter versus The Meadow. The Establishment also feature in the book, hence the military clips and then there is the backdrop to some of the individual stories in "The Meadow" like the foothills of the Himalayas and wild Africa. Everything is relevant to "The Meadow".
