About the Book

If your life story was re-told would you be able to piece together the meaning that had always been there?

Rosie O’Dea, 31, was born to make a difference. She knows it; she feels it. Yet now on a country road, her life hovers in an ethereal dimension between life and death.

We all know the saying “your life fl ashes before your eyes.” Well it happened—to me. I watched myself relive my life. But something strange was also happening. Mandela, Einstein, a Captain, a Surgeon? Inexplicably, moments in other people’s lives were flashing amidst my own.

And over and over I heard a voice, “If only they had listened.”

Rosie finds wisdoms embodied in the most unexpected places: Her best friend Holloway; a phrase wafting across a holy mountain peak; in ancient flowers and spiraling shells; Grandma’s journal; an Egyptian mosque; a bustling market place; the quiet vibrance of Lake Mungo; a boy with aspergers; a Cambodian temple; deep within; and in the secret experiences of others. Yet amongst the revelations there’s confusion. Rosie has fallen in love with a man who cannot return her love and it is tearing her apart. A young woman with an emerging psychic talent, Rosie will find herself having to make a heart-wrenching decision no-one could have predicted.

We all have moments of clarity; Rosie’s are extraordinary.

Clarity in Time shines with quirky humor, tender sadness, sexuality, spirituality, a social conscience and profound insights into the human psyche. It speaks of taking action, enacting solutions and finding your own freedom and clarity in time.

“Right here and now we have the ability to become the most co-operative and connected of all the generations of humanity over time.”

Those of the past and of the present have always spoken of future possibilities.
