I was once certain there must come a time in everyone’s life when they become suspicious of all the stories they’ve been told, the ones passed on as truth from one generation to the next. Perhaps it is time to ponder the difficult questions buried deep within the forgotten wells of our souls, the questions that wake us in the dark of night, beg to be looked at, and demand to be answered.
Saga, a skeptical 35-year-old woman, consults a past-life regression therapist to confront the nebulous fear she carries. Why is she so intent on sabotaging her own life?
Elise begins to understand the dynamics at work when she tries to help a student suffering with schizophrenia. There is no problem so compelling that it cannot be ignored, if the wealthy parents demand it. If a substantial donation is on the table, the Academy is willing to turn a blind eye, but there is a price.
During the initial session, Saga travels back to 1975 to rural Iowa where she embodies 18-year-old Fiona Dolan, a farm girl who has always felt like an outsider, even in her large, Irish Catholic family. Fiona has been labeled as a storyteller, but this is just another way to say they think she is a liar. Even her own mother thinks she’s too smart for her own good. Only her grandmother recognizes that she has the gift. Fiona, like her grandmother, is an old soul carrying knowledge from other lifetimes.
A traumatic event catapults her further back in time, where she once lived as a different person. Remembering her past, she struggles with her own capacity for violence as she confronts the realization that members of her family and community betrayed her not only in other lifetimes, but they have followed her into her current life and are seeking vengeance.
Fiona’s story becomes intricately intertwined with Saga’s as she time travels between both realities. Can she find a way to break the karmic cycle of revenge and retribution?
THE SEER is the first book of the Full Circle trilogy.
