“Finding Emmaus”, book one of The Lodestarre series, is a complex, dark historic fantasy about love and loss, obsession and the abuse of power, human frailties and a determination to live a life that matters.

The psychiatric community has confused Empathic personality traits with mental illness with tragic results, leading two Empaths, living three hundred years apart, on personal journeys to learn the true nature of Empathy.  Transcending time and death to right a centuries-old wrong, they inadvertently uncover a multi-billion dollar conspiracy in which millions of Americans are being misdiagnosed and drugged for no other reason than the enormous income they generate.

Francis Nettleton, 17th century Empath, grew into adulthood believing himself to be insane.  Eminently moral but the product of a society steeped in myths and misconceptions, he makes some less-than-prudent decisions which set in motion a murder for which he cannot forgive himself, a murder which will reverberate through four families and three centuries.

Three hundred years later, enter Katherine Spencer.  After years of being hospitalized and drugged, she is given a rare opportunity: a second chance at life.  At fifty-four, after being told that, rather than being insane, she’s more than likely Empathic, she sets out to find Francis and the legendary Lodestarre, both 300 years gone, in the hopes she can finally learn to live.

In the process of finding herself and mastering her newly-discovered abilities, Katherine unwittingly becomes the champion for the voiceless millions who are being victimized by a corporate machine of such omnipotent political power that she literally puts her life on the line when she challenges the all-but-unstoppable pharmaceutical industry, America’s most powerful and affluent lobby.

Then, into Katherine’s life comes Sally Cavanaugh, powerful – though novice – Empath with a secret infatuation which eventually transforms into a full-blown obsession.  Overshadowing her ability to discern right from wrong, this obsession just might jeopardize every good thing in her life and everyone else’s – just to get what she wants.

In Wiccan tradition, there is the Book of Shadows; in Christianity, the Bible; even the secular world has its encyclopedias.  But for Empaths, there was nothing of the sort until Francis Nettleton sacrificed everything and made it his life’s mission to create one authoritative body of knowledge, one central set of guiding principles – and he named it The Lodestarre.  This manuscript is nothing less than the lifelong, selfless passion of one man’s profound desire to put an end to the relentless persecution and needless suffering of anyone who did not – or could not – fit the societal mold.

“Finding Emmaus” is an intricate, meticulously-researched, deeply disturbing, suspenseful tale of love and sacrifice, brutality and greed, courage and politics and madness and faith.  It is a story with a huge cast of characters who will keep you guessing what will happen, what they will do and what choices they will make from one minute to the next as they weave in and out of the story and each others’ lives.

  1. Tony,

    Well done! You’ve created a visual and auditory compliment to Pamela Glasner’s compelling novel “The Lodestarre: Finding Emmaus”.

    Your initiative and the quality of your work are impressive. I trust you will receive the recognition you deserve for your contribution to what I believe will be a successful launch of the book in October.

    I’ve happily been forwarding the piece to my contacts for their review along with the written materials we’ve produced to promote Pamela’s fine work. You are now officially part of the “Finding Emmaus” marketing team, thank you for the beautiful video montage!

    All the very best,

  2. Pamela & Tony, what a wonderful audio, and the story preceeding the audio is magnificent… Keep up the good work.
    Can’t wait to get the book… much love

  3. Tony,
    I can’t begin to tell you how grateful I am that you and I have become friends. I just love how passionate you are about “Finding Emmaus”, the message it’s meant to convey and the entire ‘Big Pharma’ issue.

    “Finding Emmaus” is a multi-faceted story with twists and turns and many circuitous paths, but in the end it’s about one thing and one thing only: seeking – and helping others to find – shelter from them storm.

    God bless you , Tony – you’re the best.

    Pamela ♥
