"A page turner...there are times when I couldn't read it fast enough...Bud Gundy has created a truly innovative romp through history, captured in a voice that is magical and amusing."

     - Alan Chin, The Examiner

Something is happening. Something big.

In Ireland at the time of the potato famine, a young servant discovers that he is part of a mystery he could never have imagined. In modern San Francisco, two more unsuspecting people are drawn into the same vortex.

Crashing through the centuries, the mystery snares young and old, rich and poor, the religious and the skeptic. And sometimes, it carries those people along with it through the ages. People walk the earth for hundreds of years, burdened by knowlege they never wanted, and tormented by visions they can’t understand.

Some of the clues lie in plain sight, like the obscure form of a woman on the Bayeux Tapestry, one of the world’s greatest medieval works of art. Other times, the mystery makes itself known in more subtle ways. A scratch on the skin. An empty room.

Sister Mary Rose Harlowe and Broderick Ellis have never met, yet find themselves thrown together, racing to get answers that can prevent disasters and save countless lives. And just as they’ve solved the mystery, they discover that the most shocking revelation is about their own lives.

A secret can live forever, or it can hide forever. It can’t do both.

Bud Gundy reads an excerpt from his new novel Elf Gift at Under One Roof in San Francisco. December 12, 2012.
