The second book moves from New Zealand to the UK as one of the three mate ends up there in an alien world. A 21st-century bloke living in the 19th century with no memory of his past

Samuel McInnes aka Mack, severely wounded in the attack on Auckland in 1863, recovered consciousness on HMS Esk heading to Scotland via Sydney, Australia.
Sam is mistakenly repatriated to Scotland as the army believe this is where he is from. With the loss of memory, his life becomes complicated, as he falls for a young nurse on the voyage who has a secret that she will not reveal to him until he is fully recovered.

Out of place, out of sync, he finds himself in an alien world. Memories from another time come and go as he tries to adjust to his new life. He struggles to remember who he is and how he come to be here, while always hoping his memory will return.
Will he get home to his own century?

The second book in the Whispers trilogy.

Whispers of the Past by Owen Clough

Whispers of the Past

 You have done it again

Just read Shadows Owen, you have done it again, another good, hard to put down read. I am now waiting for the final to come out. You had better get on with it Mate. Well done. [by Mike O'Hare]

 Excellent Historical Novels

Owen Clough's books 'Whispers of the past' and 'Shadows of the Mind' are excellent historical novels. They are great reads for book lovers. I finished reading both books within a few days. I am waiting for the release of the book 'Clearing of the Mist', the third in the trilogy. [by Arundathie Abeysinghe]

 The Story Continues

Whispers of the past continues.

In order to make sense of this second book in Owen Clough's trilogy, I recommend reading his first book, Whispers of the Past. That said, this is a terrific read, a tale of the continuing saga of the accidental time slip that saw three modern-day New Zealanders transported back to the Victorian era. It follows the life of Sam, a best friend Bob's attempt to try and find out what happened to his friend, forced to live out his life in the latter years of the 19th century. It's a great read with so much wonderful detail of the Victorian era. I was completely enthralled by Sam's story, and being English, I actually shared in some of Victoria's difficulties in understanding some of Sam's modern idioms. Shows the difference between the speech of us Brits and our Antipodean cousins! Example? We go hiking, they go tramping. This is a super read and I loved it from start to finish and look forward to the third book in Mr. Clough's trilogy. [by Harry Porter]

Just a note Owen, I finished your book last night. I could not put it down, neglected to do stuff around the farm as I had to finish it. Brilliant story, I just loved it. I'm looking forward now to the conclusion of the trilogy Clearing of the Mist. Well done. [by Dave Gedye]
