I have received a free e-copy of the book A Second Path by Gail Wilson. To find out more about the author you may visit her facebook page.
Here is the book blurb.
Kate Grahame’s new job at the National Museum of Scotland sparks a series of dreams featuring a man she believes she has never met. Regression therapy exposes his identity and reveals a strong past life connection to the Edinburgh museum. As Kate struggles to come to terms with this startling discovery, her marriage collapses. Kate is forced to forge a new life for herself, while still learning about her mysterious past. She soon finds herself torn between two lives, two eras and two men.
Egyptologist David Young assists Kate on her journey of self-discovery by giving her a place on his team. Handsome and enigmatic, David soon harbours deeper feelings for Kate. But both are haunted by the past. Then David makes a startling discovery which threatens to tear them apart forever…
Regular followers of my blog may remember that earlier this year I read The Soul Behind the Mask, which was book 3 in a trilogy without having read the previous two books but I did get rather confused in places. Well the author kindly sent me both the other books to read.
So first up, book 1 – A Second Path. The story begins with Kate having a very vivid dream, (one of many similar dreams) which we later discover via regression is of a past life, as her namesake Katherine Grahame in the late 1800s, who married Egyptologist Edwin Ford. The story continues to switch back and forth seamlessly between the two periods. The dreams are mainly about Edwin, who then actually manifests himself to Kate in modern day.
Kate works at the National Museum of Scotland in Edinburgh which is another link, since James Grahame, her 3x great grandfather was director there. And that was also where Katherine first met Edwin, whilst taking lunch to her father.
At work Kate volunteers to help Professor David Young with his Amarna lecture, when his assistant is absent. And she looks through the family memorabilia in the attic to piece everything together. She puts together a talk to deliver to visiting school children based on her past life.
Meanwhile her marriage fails when she finds an earring belonging to former friend Gemma in her bedroom. Husband Mark and Gemma are having an affair. David invites Kate to go horse riding and they gradually spend more time together. Kate is torn between modern day and past day.
How will things progress?
A Second Path is available on Amazon, currently priced at £4.99 in Kindle format. An excellent romantic story which has been well researched by the author.
