A FORK IN THE ROAD by James Hartley gets LADYBUGGED

A FORK IN THE ROAD by James Hartley

Fantasy and magic come vividly alive when fashioned by the nimble brain of 

James Hartley, a multi-published author of books of 

magic, 



fantasy, 

life after death, and other beyond the norm themes.

Here, in his latest, A FORK IN THE ROAD, he gives us a unique redesigning on a theme that reminded me a bit of the movie 

Brigadoon, with a dash of 

Oz, a sprinkling of Alice's 

Wonderland tossed in for good measure, and if you keep your eyes open, you might even catch a glimpse of 

Never Never land too. 

How many of us can't wait to grow up, only to come to the conclusion adulthood isn't all it's cracked up to be? I know I did...but, once we cross that threshold between youth and maturity, there is no going back...unless...you have a James Hartley writing magical books that CAN take us back to the innocence of our days as children...at least for a little while.

James Hartley's A FORK IN THE ROAD takes us to the very edges of a place much like the 



Brigadoon Gene Kelly finds and must relocate when he realizes his love is stronger than the ever flowing 



sands of time. 

Mr. Hartley gives us a love tale that needs to 

bridge the distance between fantasy, where the one he loves now  exists, and the "real" world the rest of us walk around in.

Five stars for taking me to a place I fell in love with the first time I saw Brigadoon, and reminding me that magic is all around us. We just need to open to it. Well done Mr. Hartley.
