Your Soul Mate is out there! Let a past life lead the way
Rachael Jones hasn’t exactly chosen an average career path. She’s a ‘past-life regressionist’ and is now hoping to help her clients find their Soul Mates through reconnecting them with their past lives. But despite her best intentions, there are problems. Rachael made the mistake of regressing her best friend, Susie Morris, who has since been haunted by events that occurred in her past life.
When Susie meets Hollywood actor, George Silbury in unlikely circumstances, she is completely unprepared for her reactions. There’s an intense mutual attraction that neither can explain nor ignore.
Can George help Susie to overcome the sense of desolation she feels as the result of her past-life regression or will history’s habit of repeating itself ruin all chances of her finding happiness?

  1. I would have liked to have been Queen Victoria. Not because I wanted to be Queen, but because of her amazing relationship with Prince Albert. They were true soul mates and the family they created, while flawed, was created from a deep love for each other. Her love for him never died, even when he did. It was eternal, and that is what I would want to experience.

  2. In a past life I would like to have been Nell Gwynn, reputedly the mistress of King Charles II. Was she really his mistress! Being an orange seller how did she fare at Court. Or did the King visit her! Love the clothes she wore, and how her hair was fashioned. Did she love the King? Did he love her?
    I figure that if I went back in time, these questions and more, would be answered.

  3. In a past life I would like to have been Beatrix Potter. She made her way although she had to fight that her stories were published. She was a tough woman.

  4. In a past life I would have been a writer. I would have travelled the world and had lots of beautiful experiences to write about. I would have been a free spirit, roaming around the world, enjoying what the world had to offer.

  5. In a past life it would be wonderful to have been the first female goldsmith in ancient Egypt. I’d use that glorious gold to fashion bangles and pendants to win the heart of my favourite pyramid-building slave. Couldn’t fail!

  6. Queen Anne. She was a very misunderstood queen. Would have loved to have been her amongst all the intrigue and speculation about her friendship with Sarah Churchill. Her husband was devoted to her as they had over 20 children together, although none of them survived her.

  7. I would have loved to have been Princess Diana, such a genuine caring person, amazing looks, great fashion sense, everyone loved her

  8. I would to have been Jane Austen in my past life. I would love to know what made the woman who wrote so many brilliant, witty, novels. I visited her house at Chawton last year and saw the tiny desk where she used to sit and write. A quill and and A5 sized sheets of paper – no laptop and spellcheck for her – although on the plus side she wouldn’t have had facebook or twitter as a distraction. I would love to know the real reasons why she stayed single. There’s been talk of a romance with an Irish man; but for the woman who has written some of the most romantic books ever written it seems she didn’t find her own Mr Darcy.

  9. I would love to have been Elizabeth Taylor. Not only was she beautiful and glamourous but her relationship with Richard Burton was pure passion.

  10. Who wouldn’t want to be Cleopatra – with “wit, charm, and sweet tones of voice” she seduced two hugely powerful men.
    And the inventiveness… wrapping herself up in a carpet to be delivered to Julius Caesar, hauling Mark Anthony up to her rooms by rope.
    Capable of ruling by herself at a time when women just didn’t DO that, yet she loved her conquests enough to bear them children and sail off with her men.
    That is real love, and Romancing of the Soul.
    What a woman!

  11. In a past life I would have liked to have been the fictional character Miss Fancy Day in Thomas Hardy’s Under The Greenwood Tree. Her character was lucky enough to have a good looks (let us be honest – always a plus) a good education, was musical, a good choice of suitors, lived in a rural idyll, and married for just for love and no other reason. Oh yes, how could I forget, the most dashing chap who idolised her.

  12. I would have loved to have been princess grace of monaco, to have been a famous movie star who was wooed by a prince, very romantic. Just unfortunate that her life was cut short so tragically

  13. I would loved to have lived for a short time as Maggie Thatcher. Whether you liked her or not never has and, most likely, never will there be a woman to rival her in politics. I would loved to have seen behind that stony face she sported and glimpsed a snapshot of what she was like behind that black door…

  14. This is a really hard question, but I’m tempted by the idea of Daphne Du Maurier. She lived in some wonderful places and her imagination was obviously filled with passion and mystery, which sounds very appealing!

  15. I would love to have been an adventurer like Freya Stark or Isabelle Eberhardt…sallying forth into the desert, meeting nomadic tribesmen at a time when women just didn’t do that sport of thing, and even more so not in a dangerous unknown country like Algeria (in which Isabelle Eberhardt sadly and ironically died in a flash flood in the Sahara)

  16. I would be one of the Queen’s corgis. All the privilages of being in the Royal Family with none of the duties.

  17. I would like to have been a member of the Bloomsbury Set, to have had the opportunity to meet Virginia Woolf, Rupert Brooke, John Maynard Keynes. Their company would have been such an inspiration.
