Their love spans centuries. Will it survive a journey around the world?

After getting blacklisted from the venture capital industry, twenty-nine-year-old Edward Vaughan will do anything to avoid telling his wife what happened. Even if it means agreeing to her dream of bicycling around the world. Kara, tired of being married to a workaholic, was readying for a divorce. Now, she’s packing bags of a different kind. Together, they pedal away from Seattle, headed east on the open road across America, Europe, and beyond.

It’s a decision that reverberates across centuries, shattering a continuum that bound their souls throughout time, and traps Edward in a battle with a past life over an eternal love.

As the miles roll by, and the deceits begin to surface, the couple encounters several men plucked from history, each one a vessel of Edward’s soul in a prior life. Of them, a 19th century art dealer proves dangerous, believing Kara is his ticket back to the past.

Tailwinds Past Florence is a contemporary love story with a magical twist, landing readers in the saddle of a global bicycle adventure. The novel was inspired by the author's multi-year bicycle travels.

Recensioner i media

"Travel, both conventional and through time, brings rousing action, romance, and unorthodox marriage counseling. Walsh, a veteran of video game strategy guides, imbues his romance with as much action as any game he's peeled back the secrets of. The book boasts an impressive knowledge of cycling as well as the history it draws from, be it Renaissance Italy or the time of the French Canadian voyageurs, a pleasant balance to its more outlandish conflicts." - Kirkus Reviews

"This is an excellent book that I would recommend to anyone who wants something different ... one of those books that are hard to put down, and it stays in your head and heart long after it's finished. That is difficult for any author to do. The book starts at a major turning point in the characters' lives and takes readers on a journey that has many twists and turns." - Judge, 27th Annual Writer's Digest Self-Published Book Awards

"Tailwinds Past Florence is a road trip with a spark of romance and a fantastic twist. It's a passionate story and this author not only knows his impulsive characters well, but also the facts about biking -- and he excels at describing the various settings in a number of different countries. You'll feel like you've been on tour as well, but without breaking a sweat." - Wendy Kendall, My Edmonds News

"Doug Walsh has taken his real-life adventures and turned them into an ambitious, imaginative, swooping love story." - Alastair Humphreys, Author & National Geographic Adventurer of the Year

"Tailwinds Past Florence is an easy yet thought-provoking read. Even if you are not a fan of reincarnation or time travel, enjoy the book for the insights it gives you into relationships and intimacy." - Home News Tribune, mycentraljersey.com
