But that’s not all that I liked about the novel. I am a fan of description, and the author makes excellent use of the five senses in her descriptions and actions. Most writers stick with seeing and hearing only. It also shows that the author did extensive research and included interesting aspects of the “past” lives (such a candle making). I knew little about Past Life Therapy before reading this book, but the author made this topic clear and alive and interesting as she wove it into the story.
