Love in Five Dimensions

'A ripping-good romantic adventure'

David Jenner, at 59, had lived a self-indulgent, unproductive and uneventful life – very much the ‘grey’ man who’d pass you in the street un-noticed. He still lived in the large, shabby Edwardian house he and his family had moved to in 1949 - still slept in the same bedroom. And his career had been equally grey and unimaginative.

But all this was to change with dramatic consequences…

You reap what you sow, and David starts to realise that the sands of opportunity are running out, the poor yield of a misspent life now coming back to haunt him.  If that wasn’t enough to contend with fate then deals a devastating blow that leaves him feeling helpless to redeem his wasted existence.

That is, until unrequited love which had pained his tender heart at age thirteen, once more infuses his shallow soul, and offers respite from the deepening pathos that's closing in on him.

Now fired with romantic dreams David embarks a strange and poignant journey through the enigmatic mists of time back to 1958  - and Love’s Fifth Dimension.
