The Divine chronicles



In the dead of night, Bertie walks the corridors of Macmillan’s Hope and Sanctuary Hospital befriending the dying, letting them know they are not alone, that they have not been forgotten.

Is he an angel, there to guide them on to their eternity, or is he just a kindly hospital porter giving those so close to the end a little hope?

Bertie is both of these things and he is neither.

He is the guardian of the afterlife, guiding those recently passed back to a time in their life where they were the happiest.

Bertie isn’t the only one with abilities he cannot explain, and he isn’t the only one for whom the sands of time do not flow.  Who is the man who finds him in his dreams, and why does he reach out to him?



Sophie lies frozen in her hospital bed. Only able to blink and think she is the victim of Locked-in Syndrome. When she receives a book for her 30th birthday from her grandfather a family secret which has remained hidden from her is unearthed, but she also has secrets of her own.

Billy has suffered from a sleeping disorder his entire life. Over medicating himself on alcohol each night he is fighting his body's way of telling him there is more, that his evolution is not yet finished.

There have been whispers down the ages of men untouched by time. Able to speak any language, fit into any society, disappearing and reappearing centuries later...the Divine.
Half a century ago a book was published. Masqueraded as an autobiography this book depicted the life of a man who was impervious to harm and unaffected by the sands of time.


God or monster?
Angel or the next step in human evolution?
Still he searches for more like him.
