Beschreibung

"From Darkness To Light" is a gripping tale of the events surrounding the invention of the electric light by Thomas A. Edison and the plot to sabotage the invention. Based upon on the historical facts, this page-turning narrative is told through the love story of Rockwell Kent who discovers his lover, Fiona Wakefield, is in life-threatening danger because of her involvement in a plot to either steal or sabotage Edison's invention. A controversial scientific undertaking right from the start, the novel reveals the frustrations, failures and successes of the invention and answers the intriguing question of why the powerful financier, J. P. Morgan, would agree to finance the experiments of the young, self-taught, and mercurial Edison who audaciously claimed he had discovered a key principal of electricity that had eluded the leading scientists of the time. In short, this is an against-all-the-odds story of the birth of the age of electric power and modern technology.
