Lorelei" is not just another book about Soulmates, it is unique, the
Legend connection ensures that.
Besides, apart from a few books of anecdotes, there are only three
books on the subject of Soulmates; certainly in the narrative style:
"The Bridge Across Forever" by Richard Bach, his Autobiography,
including Richard's meeting with his Soulmate, Leslie Parrish.
Richard Bach, a novel which includes Leslie.
"Only Love is Real" by Dr Brian Weiss, about two of his
clients who had lived many lives together.
That is quite apart from what Soulmates really are, which many,
most people, misunderstand because the term "Soulmate" is used
erroneously where "Kindred Spirit", those with a strong affinity for
each other, is more appropriate.
The Soulmate relationship is far beyond that, highly spiritual,
transcending time and space, let alone mere physical lifetimes.
As far as "Remembering Lorelei" is Concerned, to that needs to be
added the story who, as an extremely powerful Healer, which she
still is, became a German Legend.
An important connection arose after the time period covered by the
book, that between Lorelei and my wife, Jo; initially when Lorelei
helped Jo through a major operation. Jo and Lorelei are, as Lorelei
put it, "Celestial Sisters", that is Soul Sisters, extremely closely
related at the Soul Family level. My relationship with Jo is the
same at the Soul level but inhibited, attenuated, by our physical
There is no clash in our relative situations; no competition, not
rivalry, no petty human traits, never was, in fact, because I needed
a strong partner in this lifetime and Lorelei recommended Jo. We are
part of a large family, in the Soul sense, working for each other
rather than against. No physical world jealousies; quite the
How to present all of this was discussed among several of us,
including my Business Advisor, Sylvie, my Editor/Proof Reader, and
my Healer Colleagues. Holding back on the revelation of Jo's
relationship with Lorelei until a potential sequel was not an
option; too many people, everyone really, would get the wrong
Hence, it was decided that, although the fact that Jo is Lorelei's
Soul Sister arose well after the period covered by the text of
"Remembering Lorelei", that should go up front to avoid
misunderstandings on relationships, though Earthbound thinking was
always going to have problems with it.
As far as the
book, in general, is concerned, the following comments were received
from Barbara Ford-Hammond (www.barbaraford-hammond.com;
www.newsfromthemuse.blogspot.com), an experienced Regression
Therapist, in July 2006, prior to publication:
"I am loving the book so far - beautifully written. I feel it is
called A Legend for a Soulmate as that sentence leapt of
the page and practically slapt me!
Thank you for sharing it.
Wishes of success.
