Heart-wrenching tragedies, a perilous uprising, and one impossible choice.

As a professional pianist, it is only in music that Evelyn Bell allows herself to let go of reality. After the loss of her parents, Evey struggles with obsessive compulsive disorder and remains fixated on an echo of the past—until her life is turned upside down once more during a symphony performance. Trapped within a vision, she locks eyes with a mysterious young man. Without answers, she is quickly returned to her piano bench center stage as time literally stops around her.

Ailis is a woman of the Celts, and the daughter of a chief, whose clan means everything to her. She yearns to be strong like her father and to protect her people from invaders. When she loses her brother on his wedding day it is only the beginning of many scars on her heart. With help from the other clans, she tries to keep her father’s alliance alive long enough to strengthen the nations and save them all. As their leader, Ailis must let go of her grief and remember her warrior path, but will she be able to protect her people against all odds?

In this compelling tale of two women separated by centuries, Evey and Ailis will seek answers, fight for their freedom, and embark on a journey of self-discovery through memories and strife where they must learn to embrace loss, change, and their true destiny.






“When the connection was finally made it was so beautiful! …Honestly, this was the best fight scene I’ve ever read. I felt the adrenaline and I also felt the fear and the desire to live.” – AS TOLD BY TINA, BETA REVIEW.


“This book is beautiful!! ❤ The characters are AMAZING and the story is so unique!” – RAEANNE OF LAVENDER PROSE, AMAZON REVIEW.

“What I want to say is that this book was amazing. Each character and time flows so well. Ailis and Evelyn are different, but the same. They both lose someone close and are in pain from it. I could almost imagine Evelyn’s piano playing. Every moment of reading pulled me in further. So good, and so want everyone to read!” – HADDIE, AMAZON REVIEW.

“What a wonderful book! I couldn’t put it down!!! I love dual POVs, so this was right up my alley. The characters were wonderful, and so was the storyline. I thoroughly enjoy reading any and everything JZN writes!” – STEPHANIE, AMAZON REVIEW.

“Beautifully moving. This is one stunning book and one I will be recommending.” – AMANDA, AMAZON REVIEW.

“Yet another good book by J.Z.N. McCauley… Interesting read and very well written. I really loved the characters… The way everything comes together at the end makes it worth it. …Definitely would recommend reading this beautiful story!” – MIRANDA BROCK, AUTHOR OF THE KEEPER’S WAY SERIES, AMAZON REVIEW.

“This was a love story that transcended time. Separately, we read the three main character’s thoughts, then they all come together and the book makes perfect sense. As you’re reading, you know that everything will beautifully come into place, and it does! As I read, I felt myself totally being drawn into the story. The words were wonderfully crafted and the dialogue was believable. To have a love wait for you for centuries is quite a romantic idea! Excellent choice to plot a book by.” – MICHELLE, GOODREADS REVIEW.

“This was an interesting story about finding yourself. It was interestingly written, and you do become invested in the characters. The writing is beautiful. I’m excited to see what else this author has in store for us.” – A. MULLER, AMAZON REVIEW.

“A must read for all! This story is absolutely beautiful, from the writing to the characters. You will be completely drawn in and saddened when it’s over. I would 100% recommend this to everyone!” – VICTORIA, AMAZON REVIEW.

“…There was a reason for the multiple POV and without it, the story would not be what it is. From the other reviews I have read, it appears many people have labeled this a love story and for all intents and purposes it is a love story but there is so much more to it. This is a story about self-discovery and personal growth.” – HEATHER, AMAZON REVIEW.

“A thoroughly engrossing book about two women who are interconnected. I usually enjoy books that are focused on one main character, but I was surprised how well J.Z.N. wove their stories together. I immediately connected with both women, and I’m so glad I gave the story a chance. It turned out to be one of my favorite books of the year. The great thing about A Bell Sound Everlasting is that it goes deeper than just a surface plot. It delves into character development and growth, which is one of the author’s strengths. I highly recommend giving this story a try!” – AMAZON CUSTOMER, AMAZON REVIEW.
