Six more sentences from ‘Changing the Future’. For those who have been following my previous excerpts, we’re now three chapters before the end.
Paul is in Iceland, and Lisa has just heard about the eruption of Mount Lakuda. Now she’s watching the television in the college cafeteria, desperate for any news about him. A spokesperson from the Volcano Research Centre is being interviewed about the team who were at the observation post on the south flank of the volcano and has explained that contact was lost with them just after the eruption began.
“How many scientists are at the observation post?”
“Including the Director of the Research Centre, Kristjan Dagsson, I understand.”
“Yes, Dr. Dagsson joined the team earlier this week, together with Dr. Paul Hamilton who arrived here last Sunday.”
“Dear God, no.” The words slipped involuntarily from Lisa, and she swayed as the room swirled around her.
Blurb: Lisa Marshall is stunned when celebrated volcanologist Paul Hamilton comes back into her life at the college where she now teaches. Despite their acrimonious break-up several years earlier, they soon realise the magnetic attraction between them is stronger than ever. However, the past is still part of the present, not least when Paul discovers Lisa has a young son. They can’t change that past, but will it take a volcanic eruption to help them change the future?
