During an Indian holiday with friends to celebrate their 50th birthdays, Bea has the opportunity to see a clairvoyant. Despite being sceptical, she learns about how in a past life she was called Grace and lost her soulmate Billy during World War II. On her return home, Bea has to face up to some changes involving her failing business. She also decides to revisit the men from her past, to see if any of them could be her soulmate in this lifetime. Meanwhile, it seems someone is keen on rekindling things with Bea too.
This story tells Bea’s journey into her past romances, as she focuses on a new future. Readers are left in the dark about who the person looking to reconnect with her is right until the end, and the storyline cleverly allows for several contenders. A pleasant and often poignant read.
