DURING THE TWELFTH CENTURY CRUSADES A DEADLY JOURNEY MUST BE MADE FOR SALVATION TO HAPPEN... When the king of Jerusalem is diagnosed with life-threatening leprosy, his physician and two apprentices - Ippolito and Ruth - will travel to India in search of a cure that has only ever been rumoured to exist.

They face many trials and tribulations along their journey to India and each will be more traumatic and devastating than the last. Against all odds they must continue as they hold the legacy of humanity in their hands alone.

With daring adventures having deadly consequences at each junction of the quest, it is their love and fortitude that drive them forward with nothing but a hope in their hearts of succeeding. To lose would be too devastating to contemplate...

The only thing for certain is survival is not guaranteed...

Tim lives on the far south coast of NSW in what he calls a ""fifty cent shack with a million dollar view""."
