Bounded by Eternity is a novella in verse, telling the story of a woman who has forgotten her own name and history, by her own choice, through by a compact with Oberon, the king of the fey. The story moves between future and past, interweaving myth and reality, memory and confabulation, and loss and survival, eventually transmuting fear to forgiveness.
". . . a lyrical journey into realms at once mysterious and familiar. . . . Before long we learn the important, imaginative answers to such questions as what happens when we first meet ourselves or rescue one another, and sometimes, when we let go. Where do we find our true homes? Take your time with this compelling collection, and return to it." -Bryan Thao Worra, former SFPA President.
"In Bounded by Eternity, Deborah L. Davitt spins a wondrous tale of a woman's search for her genuine self, assaying her different identities, in love with a fairy king, across years and journeys through dimensions magical and mundane, till her sojourn with a wounded warrior. Davitt escorts us through ethereal crystalline environs and urban concrete landscapes, both tinged by the realities of war. The beauty of Davitt's imagination lies in how our everyday troubles and victories are transmuted into the stuff of magic without losing the homespun truths of daily life." —Vince Gotera, Editor, North American Review and Star*Line
