If we happen upon a person ferrying the soul of a lover from a past life, a kind of recognition may occur, often taking the form of blisteringly delicious and ungovernable attraction. A chance meeting between young Californian Dermot Foley and Parisian Anna Levet may not be as random as the pair first believes.
Their magnetic encounter soon sparks shared memories—but not of their current lives in 2013. Both sense that somewhere back in space and time their souls clung together on the very same vine. After Anna and Dermot experience glimpses from their harrowing past lives in Poland and Germany during World War II, they pursue every lead across Europe in a quest to weave the tapestry of their past incarnations. What if our lives are more than a random series of encounters and events? What if there is a grand design, after all? Debut author Clayton Van Hook engineers mysterious and enlightening historical fiction with a metaphysical twist while opening minds to Werner Heisenberg’s premise: “Not only is the universe stranger than we think, it is stranger than we can think.”
