"A Powerful and fascinating foray into the future of science and its unforeseen consequences"
A captivating story of reincarnation, redemption, and forgiveness. Even though Holly O’Rourke is having problems with her longtime significant other, James, she has never entertained thoughts of infidelity that is, until the day she has a chance encounter with Charlie, a handsome coworker. James promises he will change and work on their relationship, but Holly’s feelings for Charlie just won’t go away. Distressed by her mixed emotions, Holly schedules an appointment for a reading with a psychic medium, where she discovers her adulterous past lives and their tragic consequences. Holly learns to do her own past life regression through self-hypnosis and uncovers not only lives that she shared with James and Charlie, but how the other people in her present life have been with her in the past, the threads of their lives interwoven for centuries. Holly is stunned by recurring themes and the issues of karmic justice that need to be addressed but where will her karmic path ultimately lead?
A wonderfully astute, multi layered character driven novel, Little Bits Of Karma is the debut release from author Laura Simmons. Gradually building momentum, the plots twists and turns will enthral as the reader moves seamlessly from past to present. Yes, reincarnation is a popular theme, but quite often it’s made overly complex though this certainly isn’t the case here. Simmons sometimes stretches credibility to the limit, but her narrative remains perfectly coherent. There’s timely exposition, her characters confidently developed and insightfully observed, all together fuelling intrigue and the desire to discover how the shards of Holly’s past bond together in the present. These alone are reasons to read Little Bits Of Karma, but what ultimately prevails is an innate sense of familiarity, ably captured by Simmons through the shrewd use of universal tropes which play to our innate need for answers. It’s entertaining, thought provoking and leads to an absolutely cracking denouement which readers will love.
A fine debut and one that’s sure to garner an enthusiastic following for Laura Simmons, Little Bits Of Karma is highly recommended.
