Travelogue is the 40 year odyssey of two families, the Taits & the Joyces. Tasha is the daughter of Ian & Xavier Tait. She has blocked her past as a means of personal survival. Tasha's nemesis is Jorge, the son of Tom & Leyna Joyce. Jorge is very powerful with the Triple Eye Corporation. Tasha and Jorge grew up in the same neighbourhood, losing contact in their teens. Tasha catches Jorge on TV, and is highly suspicious of his success. Nothing is what, or how it seems. Can Tasha change her present with new knowledge of her past? With some newly found friends, including Dylan Douglas, Tasha seeks answers to her questions. Her #1 question? Did Jorge have anything to do with her father's mysterious disappearance 18 years before? The past connects the future. As Tasha begins to rediscover and embrace her past, Jorge desperately goes out of his way to keep his own past buried and forgotten. Author Thomas Ryerson's writing style has been compared to that of Andrew Davidson, author of The Gargoyle.

About the Author:

Thomas A. Ryerson hails from Woodstock, Ontario, Canada. He is a late bloomer as far as writing is concerned. Thomas orginally got the writing bug at the age of 16. However, it took him over twenty years to actually discipline himself and complete a novel. In that twenty year period Thomas had been distracted by the thing called life; working for a living, marraige, and children. He began his first novel, Travelogue, in 1997, completing it just over ten years later. His second written novel, Castle Lake, became his first published.

Review:

A wonderful candid introspective novel with moments of laughter, surprise and eroticism. --Albertine Atonelli-Freelance Editor

Travelogue is one of the better books I've read. The author brings the characters to life without over-doing it. There are some time jumps spanning a number of years, which I followed with no difficulty. There are so many sub-plots in this novel that I know that I will pick it up again over the years and still find new things. The sex scenes were very well written without going over the top. Perhaps a cold shower after reading a few of them will be in order. There is a fair amount of course language, violence and sex dotted through-out the book-I suggest the book for those 17 and over who also like to cheer for the under dogs. I very much look forward to reading the author's next novel, Fun City. --Michael J. Winegarden-Sudbury, Canada

I really enjoyed the PDF version of Travelogue. It was very suspenseful. I found myself wondering what would happen next when I had turned off my computer. I was also surprised by how down and dirty it got from the beginning. Immediately I was drawn into the story and curious about the characters and their past. I was genuinely sad for lead character Tasha because of her difficult and tragic childhood. She was let down or hurt by virtually everyone in her life. The sex scenes were very intense and passionate without being trashy, which is important to me in a novel. Another thing I liked was that it felt like two separate stories for a significant amount of time, but it all blended together so well. Everything merged together at the end, so I was left feeling very satisfied. --Elise Papallion - White Rock, BC, Canada
