Time Is the Length to Forever
A Back Door Opens . . .
About the Book
A backdoor suddenly opens, a descent down the rabbit hole—a book within a book within a book. “Another journey through Princeton's history, but this time, the focus is on empowerment, with a less-than-subtle nudge to the skills of listening and compassion. Flawlessly interwoven with synchronicity, this is another masterpiece by Dr. Clovis” (Alison Ward). “The anecdotes that stand out are stories of Ms. Ida B., an elderly Princeton woman whom the author interviewed for her first book and later befriended. It’s clear Ms. Ida B. is not merely an interview subject, but part of Clovis’ life . . . It’s a moment of welcome candor. An inspiring, lyrical fusion of pertinent social issues and the writer’s own experiences” (Kirkus Reviews). “The stories fall in her lap by a masterful design, almost with the precise intent of being unveiled to readers by the unique craft she should trademark” (Giordana Marioni).
