Product Description

Leigh Ann has been psychic since childhood, sharing with her mother her ability to see and hear things unknown to ordinary people. She is not afraid of spirits. But now, as she struggles with her failing marriage, she senses a dark, brooding presence far beyond the ordinary, a mysterious being who calls himself Bael and insists that Leigh Ann was once his lover. She is haunted by strange dreams, by the persistent voice of Bael, and by the gradually surfacing memories that she was indeed a maiden called Leianna, betrothed to Bael 35,000 years ago in the beautiful land of Eliom, until the two were separated the catastrophe known in later legend as the Fall From Grace. Now, across the millennia, Bael has come to claim her once again....

"Newcomer Brahen boldly reinterprets GENESIS in this inventive SF/fantasy hybrid that begins as a realistic drama of a young Philadelphia mother, Leigh Ann Elfman, coping with a failed marriage, then moves into an otherworldly story of unfulfilled love across the ages, including more than one paranormal paramour. A "dark presence" repeatedly appears to the psychically-gifted Leigh Ann and informs her she was first born as Leianna on Eliom, an Edenic planet of angel folk, 35,000 years earlier. Leigh Ann journeys to Eliom, where she meets Bael, her original betrothed, who wishes to make her his bride. Leigh Ann, however, has mixed feelings about this prospect. Brahen writes clearly and creates distinct characters."
Publishers Weekly

" . . . a journey through an intricately developed universe based partly on traditional views of Heaven and Hell, but inventive enough to keep the reader guessing. This is another of those books that is particularly rewarding to those who have had more than enough disguised historical novels with a fantasy overlay and who want to try something new and inventive, and it's pretty well written to boot."
Don D'Ammassa in Chronicle
