From the accomplished pen of Jon Beattiey, a master of contemporary fiction with romantic overtones, comes a brand new style of pure romance set in the late sixties-early seventies. Seeking derives its inspiration from the 1949 Oscar Hammerstein song Some Enchanted Evening where the phrase `You may see a stranger across a crowded room' translates to a vision of a young lady seen walking away down a back street in Stamford. Jones, a twenty-something young man with a English Degree from Cambridge, is drifting through an undemanding existence when two interconnected happenings set him on a path to an uncertain future. Seeking the answer to the dilemmas involves him with other women and with a magical, strange, incomprehensible connection through thought with Lucy; where he experiences the power of two minds with a deeply rooted common interest in music and poetry. Nearly swept away in a suffocating relationship with an older woman, only Lucy's immense clarity of mind pulls him back from disaster, but subsequent events bring another powerful twist to his fortunes. The story follows talented Lucy in her rise to musical stardom as she tells of her own mental complexities, yearning for support in far-off Salzburg, interwoven with Jones's expressions for help and quest for clarity of mind. How Jones finally decides which way his path lies proves to be the most thoughtful and intriguing glimpse into the power of the mind and how much music and poetry influence our lives. Seeking is a beautiful and heart-warming well-structured story written in an entirely different way.
