"Alex Marcoux has created A METAPHYSICAL MYSTERY THAT INFORMS, ENTERTAINS, and makes me want to go have a past-life regression. Her work is well crafted, interweaving past and present with flawless detail. You'll find yourself in Salem during the horrific witch hunts of the 1690s, as well as in the present-day cut-throat film industry. This GENDER-BENDING THRILLER is reminiscent of Kenneth Branagh's Dead Again, but with more highly developed characters. Marcoux is AN EXCEPTIONAL NEW TALENT that definitely should be read in this lifetime."
—Paul J. Willis, Executive Director, Lambda Literary Foundation

—Suzanne Proulx, Author of Bad Blood, Bad Luck, and Bad Medicine
"REFRESHING, FULL OF UNEXPECTED TWISTS . . . guaranteed to keep you guessing until the very end.

FILLED WITH INTRIGUE AND SECRET PASSIONS."
—Sherry L. Stinson, Editor, www.outlookpress.com
"DEFINITELY A WINNER! Alex Marcoux has outdone herself as she weaves a tale within a tale of cruel injustices done to two destined lovers. The story is CAPTIVATING and the insight into the souls of the lost lovers tore at my heart. Alex's knowledge and concept of reincarnation is truly "inspired". It has such an ease and flow, it makes me wonder if the tale is really fiction or is it true? I, for one, would love to see more of these soul-mates."
