Fusing an exciting time-travel adventure with an emotive and heart-warming story about one girl’s deep love for her deceased brother, ‘The Clay Lion’ will resonate with anyone who has felt the love of a sibling or faced painful grief and loss.
Charlotte, NC -- (SBWIRE) -- 03/26/2013 -- In a unique literary experience, Amalie Jahn’s latest novel melds together the fictional world of time travel with the stark reality of love and loss. Culminating in a book unlike any other on the market, readers around the world are promised suspense, reflection and solace.
‘The Clay Lion’ proves that, no matter what life throws someone’s way, the deep power of love is truly timeless.
The rules are simple. If you want to travel back in time, you need to be at least eighteen years old. You can only travel within your own lifespan for a maximum of six months. And above all else, you must never, ever, change the past. As Brooke Wallace faces existence without her beloved brother, his life cut short by a rare disease, she can think of only one solution – travel back in time to prevent his death.
However, her attempts at fixing the past challenge her to confront everything she believes to be true about herself. And ultimately, she is forced to discover whether or not we can ever truly be in charge of our own destiny.
As the author explains, her narrative holds special appeal to those who understand the unbreakable bond of siblings.

About Amalie Jahn
Writing has always been an important part of the author's life. As a child, she loved writing fiction stories and won a literary award for a short story she wrote in seventh grade. Fiction writing of her youth gave way to the dreaded five paragraph essay as she entered high school and college. Eventually, she transitioned to lesson plan writing as she began a career as an elementary school teacher. When she became a stay-at-home mom, she started an online blog to document the life of her children. And also found herself writing, many, many to-do lists. On one of those to-do lists, she included "write a novel." After being encouraged by family and friends, she was finally able to cross it off her list, coming full circle to complete her first fiction novel in 2013. She currently lives in North Carolina with her husband and two children.
