Review of "Recognitions", a novel by Daniela Norris

Recognitions is the first novel by Daniela A. Norris. She is planning to follow it up with two more books to form a trilogy. The theme is past lives, although the story can still be enjoyed without believing in reincarnation. She skilfully blends the present day story of a divorced American mother with that of the past lives of a young French girl living in the 17th century and that of an African shaman living at the height of the slave-trading era. Through the techniques of hypnotherapy, dreams and trance-like novel-writing, the
present day protagonist endeavours to find meaning in the past lives of the other two main characters. Overall, the story is moving and captivating. Highly recommended!
