The Advent House

Tim Jorgenson

Gabriela never imagined her promises to a dying Adriana would entangle her with the state security service. But working at CubaTur she knew the ordinary could mask the extraordinary and the ordinary could go awry. She would soon learn more-after meeting Tomas, who thought his mother Adriana had died years earlier. The two become entangled with Tomas's two uncles, elite party members whose hatred for one another soon ‘baptizes' Gabi and Tomas in their effort to keep alive.
Neither had heard of Advent houses. However, they learn a Bavarian Advent house holds secrets to a Bible network's survival. Along the way other secrets surface, not least that Tomas's true father is alive and to be put on trial by state security. Whether Tomas and Gabi can ‘satisfy' or escape state security becomes their life-or-death Advent question.

Tim's advent thriller in The Advent House follows forays in other genres. Tim's published works include plays, chancel dramas, and novels of historical fiction. His play Bonhoeffer was first produced in 2004. The dozen chancel dramas are available online through Amazon. His novel Mrs Keckly Sends Her Regards is set in the Lincoln White House. The novel The Night Is Far Gone is set in the household of the Imperial Romanovs, during the last years and days of Nicholas II, Alexandra, and their children.
Tim and his wife are by no means housebound. Except perhaps during the summer monsoon season, they're always able and eager to get out and about, exploring the forests, mountains, canyons, and Indian ruins that bedeck their home territory in Arizona's high country.
