Praise for The Realm of Misplaced Hearts
The Realm of Misplaced Hearts is a multilayered tale exploring the boundary of science and spirituality. Well-written and engaging, it draws on Dr. Hobbs’s Renaissance background as family doctor, physicist, mathematician, storyteller and, above all, gentle and compassionate human being. A great read for entertainment and reflection.

About the Book
A strange object is discovered on the ice during the annual Antarctic Search for Meteorites. On the same expedition, a couple falls in love and a child is conceived, an extraordinarily intelligent child, a scientific prodigy named Fiona. From an early age, there are things Fiona knows for which she has no reason of knowing. Random confluence of events or a carefully planned experiment? That is the question. But one thing is clear: Fiona is being watched. The supersecret organization known as the Channel has plans to exploit her special gifts. And then, there are the Others . . . The Realm of Misplaced Hearts will lead you into that zone where the eyes of the world and the eyes of the mind are joined by the eyes of the spirit and where love and compassion are pitted against greed and, above all, the thirst for power. At all costs, Fiona must be protected. The future of the world is at stake.
