“Don’t you ever forget about me...,” echoes the
karmic whisper from lives past, poisoning her peace.
“Don’t you ever forget about me...,” he whispers during
their secret encounters. Like a curse, these simple words now haunt Leandra, a
reputable psychiatrist, who finds herself in emotional chaos after the sudden
breakup of her illicit affair. Unable to heal on her own and tormented by
dreams in which supernatural forces create havoc with her fate, she desperately
turns to David, a colleague psychiatrist, asking him to take her through
past-life regression therapy. She hopes that this unorthodox and somewhat
suspect technique will explain her profound connection to the lover who has
abandoned her so abruptly.
The sessions take Leandra through 17th and 19th century
Ireland, Italy and England, where love, loss and betrayal are the leitmotifs in
an ambiance of co-mingled fantasy and reality. In her hypnotic state, Leandra
recounts a saga of intoxicating love, dizzying passion, flaming lust and
profound heartbreak. Despite the painful answers she finds under hypnosis,
Leandra still cannot let go of the hope to reunite with her lover. Ultimately,
the shattering revelations from her past-life incarnations, along with the
turmoil over her ruined marriage, become the stepping stones of her
introspective path to healing, self-discovery and an appreciation of true love.
With its seamlessly interwoven sub-plots, “Poisonous
Whispers” lures the reader from one continent to another, from past to present.
The affair at the center of the story is an anatomy of the heart in which the
heroine’s sorrow-laced journey reflects the universal themes of love and loss.
