Thomas cannot live with his terrible secret. As he heads away from all that he knows and all that he loves he has the word BETRAYAL engraved upon his every thought.

His is a learning journey that brings love and hate, despair and joy in equal measure, mixed with adventures beyond his imagination, shared by a travelling companion whose loyalty is all that matters in this quest. His troubled mother and his autocratic mentor wait at home with the news that will free him from all anxiety.
Will those who follow in his footsteps find him? Will he make it back home to a heros welcome, or spring the trap that is set to destroy him? Read on and find out

About the Author
Joan Campbell is well known throughout the Highlands of Scotland and beyond for her work in tourism. She also writes a monthly column for the Scottish Provincial Press publication, The Northern Times, as well as articles on tourism when time permits.
Living in the north of Scotland with husband Hugh, having their son Neil and his partner Katrina live close by, Joan considers herself privileged to have grandchildren Shane and Fallon to entertain with intriguing stories of feline behaviour. With her lifelong love of all animals cats, horses and rabbits in particular, it is little wonder she penned a nail-biting adventure that brings into the picture all three of her favourites, characterised by animals she knew.
The first draft of this story was inspired by the single word, "Hybrid" given by Magnus Magnuson when he corrected a contestant on Master Mind. The images that filled her thoughts crept into her dreams and soon the outline of The Land Beyond The Green Fields had taken hold. The draft progressed from a portable typewriter, encouraged by the only person who knew of its existence, through to a word processor and more encouragement by a select few, then finally onto the computer where it lay, waiting for her growing demands in tourism to allow time to get the story into print.
