MY REVIEW of PROMISED SOUL by Sandra J. Jackson




Authors Blurb
Just as Krista’s summer plans are finalized, she is suddenly plagued by strange dreams and intense feelings of déjà vu. Feeling as though she’s losing her mind, she visits a psychic medium, only to feel more confused. When Krista arrives in England, her dreams persist, and she finds herself at the doorstep of another psychic; she needs clarity. Finally, the words she was afraid to say out loud, are spoken. Now Krista has to figure out what it all means. 

Promised Soul is the story of the past, the present, and the future of two souls that have been bound together by eternal and transcending love.


MY REVIEW

Memories of a past life and a love so strong, of separation and devastation.  This tugged at the heart strings, you could feel the pain and anguish between Thomas and Mary.  Their story was bittersweet, Mary's parents had no wish for their daughter to marry the son of a farmer, he was below them in their eyes.  It was decided they would leave sail from England to a new life, leaving behind the love of Mary's life, leaving Thomas.

How do you cope with dreams like this? do you just shrug them off as having a vivid imagination? Do you try to read some meaning into it? Do you begin a search to discover why these dreams haunt you?

Krista, a school-teacher was plagued by these dreams, they started off with just small pieces of information of memories, but soon the dreams were so vivid she could see their faces, hear their voices, but more strangely she could see Mary in the steamy reflection on the mirror after showering.  Determined to find out what is behind the dreams she questions herself, her sanity, she seeks help from psychics.

Obviously she cannot put her life on hold whilst she searches for her answers, but the pull of England draws her and she takes a holiday there, away from her friends, family and work.  She wants to sight-see, take tours, so she books a tour guide  to take her on excursions around England, the tour guide is Aaron.  Her arrival in the UK starts off with Aaron's partner Peter collecting her at the airport, and taking her to her accommodation he explains Aaron has some family crisis to deal with. .

You will meet many characters in this story who will charm you and make you smile, but will being in a strange country make Krista homesick?  Will she find the answers she seeks? Believe me when I say this book is fantastic, you will not want to put it down.
