Book: Fly The Wild Echoes by Elizabeth Bailey
|5 stars, 1 review on Amazon|
Elizabeth Baileyabout this book: This book originated from a snatch of story that I recovered from a past life. Many people, I know, don't believe in reincarnation. But as my heroine Fliss says, all the Eastern cultures completely believe it and live by it. At the time I found this memory, for that is what it is, I was pretty much an unbeliever. But the emotions I experienced when unearthing this particular piece of history convinced me that it was real.
When I came to write this story, I found the parts that related to this life extremely hard to write because of my emotional involvement. Even now, when I read some of the scenes, I find I am so caught up in the story that the tragedy of it strikes me all over again.
The other two lives of the women involved are purely fictional, and I am glad to say that it is not all tragic!
The title comes from a poem by Tennyson, which is eventually shown to be pertinent to the story.
Perhaps all authors write a book that resonates with them so strongly that they consider it their chef d'oeuvre, and it may be that although I have written other stories which are close to my heart, this will be the work that lives on. But that is for readers to decide, now and in the future.
