Action, adventure and perhaps even a little murder –these are the key elements that make up a great story. One of such is Times Passes Like Rain written by celebrated talent Harry Burrus. Spinning a very engrossing novel, Burrus is quite the storyteller.
It’s a man’s world but it takes a woman to conquer it. This can be said about Laura Ryder and her two sidekicks. In Time Passes Like Rain, Laura and friends set out on a journey through the rain forest. Their mission is to brave the elements in order to climb the country’s highest mountain. Sounds simple – but there is always the exception.
During the first leg of their journey, they arrive in a city that is experiencing a political uproar. Due to their unfortunate timing, they too get drawn into the midst of it and find themselves trapped in a dangerous, deadly snare. Miraculously they survive only to find themselves fighting for their lives in the rain forest.
Time Passes Like Rain poses a story of women struggling to survive in the wild and the populous. Burrus knows how to narrate an intriguing tale.
Harry Burrus is a multi-talented author, playwright, poet, photographer and that only scratches the surface. He is an avid traveler that at one time played international tennis.
