    Donal Anthony Foley(Author)
Fifteen year old Matt Bergin is staying in Glastonbury for Christmas with his cousins, Luke and Annie Martin. Matt feels drawn to Glastonbury Tor, and St Michael’s Tower, which crowns its summit. The cousins learn the secret of Glaston Tor and find themselves propelled back in time to 1940s France and the Second World War.

They are given a mission by an enigmatic stranger, who asks them to help a young German couple and their son escape from wartime France. But the fearsome Gestapo are on their trail.

Matt and his cousins will discover that their destinies are intimately linked to this family, and to a mysterious young stranger who will stop at nothing to learn their secret.

With a compelling plot, captivating characters, suspense, excitement and ever-present danger, The Secret of Glaston Tor will take you on an incredible journey into the past, present, and future – and into the never-ending battle between good and evil . . .

This book is particularly meant for 11-14 year olds, but can also be read older young people, or by adults.

Commendations of The Secret of Glaston Tor:“The Secret of Glaston Tor is a gripping yarn that has all the ingredients any adventurous reader could desire. Time travel, wartime adventure, interrogation by the secret police, a desperate attempt to escape from France against all the odds. And it’s all woven together with a golden thread of religious truth. Who could ask for more?”Joseph Pearce, Director of the Center for Faith and Culture, Aquinas College, Nashville“The Secret of Glaston Tor is a moving story about the power of prayer, love, and goodness, that reaches God’s heart and inspires miracles. It takes us to the heart of the Christian mystery. It is a beautiful story about the pure wish of a child that touches the kind heart of a shopkeeper who makes her dream come true. Donal Foley’s book illuminates the nature of a true wish and gives a glimpse of why these wishes—the deepest desires of the heart—come true.”Dr Mitchell Kalpakgian, Professor Emeritus of Humanities, Wyoming Catholic CollegeA door opens up to another time and place, and three cousins suddenly find themselves thrust into a daring adventure none of them expected. Saving people in Nazi-occupied France is dangerous enough, but how will they get home?“Parents and target audience members alike be assured: Donal Foley has written an exciting adventure for fans of time-travelling fiction and historical adventures. Ancient Marian shrines, plucky young heroes, priests and resistance members—and nefarious Nazis to boot. Read and enjoy!”John McNichol, author, The Young Chesterton Chronicles, 1 & 2, and The King’s Gambit

Review Text

  • By Stephen de la Bedoyere on 11 February 2016

    This story lies somewhere between Enid Blyton and C.S. Lewis... it has all the ambiance of a 'Famous Five' adventure, combined with the mysterious 'time-travelling' abilities of the Narnia children, while the setting - France under the Occupation - has the ring of authenticity and was obviously well researched. What's coming next, Mr Foley

    This book was recommended to me, but I didn't know what to expect from it. However from the first page of the book, I was completely drawn in, and couldn't put it down! All the ingredients are there for an epic time-travelling adventure. I can't wait for the sequel!
