Towards the end of my book, I write about how souls can recognize each other from past lives. For Zura (the main character) and me, that recognition is a scar. We both have burn scars on our right hands between the thumb and forefinger. According to Dr. Brian L. Weiss, MD, a prominent psychiatrist in past-life therapy, scars are a way of recognizing a soul from the past. I am forever connected to someone from my past because I chose to be.
