The back jacket cover
TIME & UNFORESEEN
OCCURRENCE is a seven-novel epic drama. It is the unforgettable
story of one woman's search for a light she watched fade and then just... disappear,
and the intensely personal journey she embarks upon to find it.
Strongly character driven, and brimming with the intrigue and mystery of the
world of high finance, the Secret Service, the Martial Arts, and the love,
loyalty, and strength of a united family, it transports us to the idyllic
beaches of Maui, the remote jungles of Paraguay, and the turbulent,
enigmatic lands of Sri Lanka and Israel - propelled by an enduring love that
will not be denied - a love that every heart seeks but few ever find.
At once heartbreaking, joyful, and strikingly honest, it is an odyssey that
everyone will want to share. It carries us to the farthest reaches of
the globe, and of human experience, and into those uncharted regions only God can
reveal. It is a story of life, of love, of loss, of innocence,
courage, and revelation.
In many ways it is the
story of us all.
Here's what the critics have to say...
‘Powerfully written and broad in its scope,
this is the most compelling story about the human condition written this
century. A masterpiece.’
Bridge River News
‘Time & Unforeseen Occurrence is the
best novel (or series of them) I have read in recent memory. As the
story unfolds, the characters develop vividly and become an inspiration
to... anyone. The series is extraordinarily well written, very
readable, and one of the best examples of great literature in our time.’
‘Every once in a while a book comes along that
challenges and changes us profoundly. Destined to be a classic.’
Elder and Leemaur Publishers.
‘This isn’t a story you read, it’s a journey
you experience. Complex and imaginative it keeps you guessing at every
‘This is a powerful, fast-paced story of people
so real that we all can feel their heartaches and rejoice in their loves.
Their lives become interwoven with ours and their paths toward spirituality
become ours. We are quickly engaged and at the end, we are left wanting
Elaine Meiklem BA, B Ed.
‘The most refreshing and enjoyable book I've
read in years. A definitive discourse on unconditional love and the
power and liberation of forgiveness.’
Amy Noe - The Least of These
‘Jesse, I found your series to be interesting
and refreshing, so much so that at the end my only regret was that there
wasn’t more of it.’
Hand of Help Ministries.
‘Brilliant! Time & Unforeseen
is an emotionally charged story of human tragedy and triumph.
Powerfully written, it takes us on a journey of a young woman’s quest for
purpose and truth in her life - and ours. This is a classic series.’
Marketing Project Manager
Trinity Western University
‘Time and Unforeseen Occurrence:
Captivating from the onset and riveting in its prose, Jesse has produced an
extraordinary series. So adroitly charged, it is difficult to put
down. It leaves us with unsolved mysteries, yet tempts us with the
promise of answers to questions as yet unknown. Starkly original.’
‘What can I say about a uniquely intriguing
series that defies conventional literary categorization? Unconditional
love is its dominant theme. Where humans have traditionally built
walls, this story gives us bridges. In a world where vengeance is the
accepted creed, the characters demonstrate the awesome power of forgiveness.
Where we would divide, the story unites. Where we would seek self and
independence, the books’ very human characters strive to live to love,
serve, and embrace the strength of the family unit. Jesse draws no
lines between black and white, she dissolves the differences between
believers, paupers and billionaires, and sages and fools, and takes us on an
unforgettable journey. Timeless, as well as timely, evocative, and
thoroughly engaging, Time & Unforeseen Occurrence is a standalone
work of art. Remarkable!’
Australian Missionary in China.
'Well, I like conspiracy theories, and whodunits, and I especially
enjoyed the eye-opening peek at the fabled 'men behind the curtain,'
and the inspiring trip around the globe, but in the end it was (and
remains) the grip of love, faith, and family that moved me - deeply.
I've read the series twice now and am looking forward to my upcoming
vacation, when I intend to read it again. I can't wait for the

'We first recorded
Jenny’s Songs in our home studio, just live to two
track at the start of the project, to try to get the
right feel and figure out which songs to include on the
album - the ones that held to a common artistic vision -
the ones that ‘fit,’ and the hardest part of doing that
was paring it down to the twelve we wanted that would
fit into the allowable forty minutes of airplay. We
weren’t very good, however, at sacrificing songs that
loudly demanded to be heard, so somehow or other we
ended up with fourteen. I’m told that we’d make
lousy industry executives, but what can I say; we’re
artists. 'We had previously recorded other versions of maybe
half-a-dozen of these songs in the studio years ago, but
they lacked the urgency and immediacy that’s inherent in
a concert or other live performance, and we felt that
Jenny wouldn’t have gone the sterile studio route with
the inevitable outtakes and clinically engineered
precision. So, when we sat down and discussed the
approach we ought to take, and what the music itself was
telling us, we unanimously agreed that the ‘unplugged’
feel was better suited to the way she would have done
it. Since we wanted to be true to Jenny’s
character, we ultimately released a real, live, and
unvarnished rendition of the songs that we believe best
represent her and the unique way in which she views
life and the living.'
(All of the songs were
written by Jesse with the exception of God of
Abraham, which Brian wrote (and Tom wrote in the
Time & Unforeseen Occurrence series - Book #7)).
