Those of you who’ve read The Eternity Series will recognize that the person reading the eulogy in Book One becomes the subject of Book Two and so on.
And I, Angus is definitely a departure from the first three books in The Eternity Series. The Seafaring Crofters were united by their adventure on the sea, if nothing else. And yes, they were united by the fact that all of them were related.
Angus is a departure because there is no familial connection. He’s just the minister that was friend to Mary and Andrew. And we know a ittle about his work from I, Mary. But, outside of that, his life is one that we know very little about.
Now, I have a flaw. I love romances, and love to bring romances into my stories. I find that a romantic storyline helps to stabilize the characters, both male and female. But, no matter how much I kept wanting to place a permanent romance into I, Angus it just didn’t work that way. And so, I listened to Angus as he told me of his growing years. And made a startling revelation.
And he told me about his first adventures in Scotland. And then how he ran away from his problems, and kept running until he was in France. HE told me about how he kept running, even in France, until he noticed two riders being overtaken by thugs. And then he decided to help. And by helping them, he joined the lifelong battle. And sighed. And then he trained.
And looking at his travels, and his battles, and his efforts, it makes it clear that joining this battle forced him to grow up, to be the best he could, to do the best he could.
His efforts return him to Northern Scotland, and prepare him to fight. Not fighting against man, per se, but fighting the injustices of the widows and orphans, and also fighting against the attitudes of others, and finally, fighting against the most worthy foe of all in the North, Mother Nature.
Come join me then in the journey of the life of Angus.
