An ‘unidentified’ man is thrown into the waters just before a yacht blows up. He is adrift until a fishing boat rescues him. The ‘unidentified’ man claims to have amnesia from his head injuries.
This man is sent to shore by the heroic fishermen and is nursed back to health by a local ‘drunkard’ doctor. The doctor tries to assist him in finding his ‘lost’ self.
Through a series of flashbacks and mental images (and an imbedded microchip) the unidentified man comes to the knowledge that in his former life he access to 7.5 million Swiss francs, he has a connection to an agency called Treadstone, and his name is Jason Charles Bourne.
As you already know (unless you have been marooned on an island for the last twenty years), Bourne finds out that he is an assassin of sorts.
Complaint: I would have loved to have read this book in LARGE print. The type was so small, it was a chore. But I enjoyed the book!!!
This is a Prequel to The Pillars of the Earth (1989).
Edgar, the youngest (and the smartest) of three sons to a renowned boat builder falls in love. The problem- the young girl is married. They decide to run away and begin life in a village far away. Edgar is a superb boat builder himself. This should rather easy to do. (Disappearing is relatively easy in the Dark Ages- 9997 CE.)
The night of the planned escape, Vikings raid the villages and they kill Edgar’s one true love.
Edgar and his family (his mother and two older brothers) move to a small hamlet and try to resurrect a useless farm.
By chance, Edgar meets a noblewoman, newly married, the wife of the ruler of the surrounding lands. He is smitten. He vows to never fall in love again, but this woman has taken his eye.
Murder, treason, a new birth, flooding, illicit relationships of ‘devote’ Church leaders… all twist and turn to make this a great storyline.
I have not read the original trilogy, but I plan to do so!
