life, or at least that is what he can remember to be true, believing
in it. His heart is devoted to a woman with the beauty and poise of a
model, but a sudden injury finds him in a place questioning who he
is, where he is from, and twisting his frame of thought. Everything
seems real, even the dreams touching all senses, yet slipping back
and forth between each one, to a place where he is with Isabella, and
to another with a new love beginning.
There is far more to Isabella than
meets the eye, bringing him through memories but ones he struggles to
recall, and the merging love with Lillian contains unusual
connections from her life to his, scattered amidst the dreams, and
this surreal sense of reality. John finds himself grasping portions
of each moment to hold onto as he discovers more of how imperfect his
life and relationship really had been, or even if those portions he
feels aware of had occurred at all.
"SLIPPING BACK AND FORTH BETWEEN
PARALLELS" twists in the wonders of the mind, with trauma,
infidelity, tragedy, and a passionate love, leaving the reader
questioning each moment to figure out what part of John's life is
real, and what part is a dream. A tale of what it means to push to
the back of the mind pain, and the attempts to recall, let go, and
move forward, but can it move forward, and will love stay?
