About-

Timothy Martin is a respected lecturer in Astronomy who has spent most of his life trying to put behind him the trauma of a childhood dominated by ‘visions’. But the visions have returned, more real than ever. Not only does see other places, but he is now able to step into them. When he becomes fixated on the star Delta Crucis in the Southern Cross constellation, he sees a vision of a world orbiting it and impulsively takes a step – two hundred and forty-five light years into space. HE did not expect to survive. Nor did he expect to land in the midst of an alien city. And he certainly did not expect to threaten the well-being of another world, one that he finds disturbingly – at peace. At stake is not only his own destiny, but that of an entire world.

Endorsements & Reviews-

This utopian science fantasy, with echoes of CS Lewis’ Voyage to Venus, is a well-imagined and sympathetic exploration of how a world might operate without original sin, and the impact of its people’s innocent love on a determinedly atheistic scientist. I found it refreshing and inspiring.

Claire Belberg, author of The Golden Hour



Arboretum conjures a richly imagined world seen with the eye of the scientist and the theologian to unfold a great mystery and a great truth.

Adam Byatt, author and educator



Arboretum is a highly engaging read which challenges us to consider the possibility that the science we currently know could look very different from the perspective of one who understands it more fully. As Arthur C. Clarke says, “Any sufficiently advanced technology is indistinguishable from magic.” What we now perceive as magic may just be science beyond what we currently understand.

Morton Benning, author of Playing God
