This book combines my favorite fiction genre — suspense/thriller — with one of my favorite nonfiction genres — spirituality. In an entertaining and intricate fashion, Rita Graham presents a murder mystery that takes place in two different centuries simultaneously, involving the same souls in different bodies. Intrigued? I was! Karma Rising is both a great suspense tale and a fascinating look at the subjects of karma, reincarnation, parapsychology and past-life regression, as experienced by the characters involved. It’s also a carefully presented historical novel, rich in detail of the ante- and postbellum South, and a contemporary story, colorful in its description of a fictitious real estate development in more modern-day Atlanta and the mysterious and murderous things that are happening there that weave a group of people, most of whom just met, together. And, it’s a few great love stories, too!Graham’s descriptive powers make her characters come alive, a feat that becomes kind of fascinating to experience when you are reading about the same soul in two different bodies, exhibiting similar personality traits, but expressed and experienced as different people (and sometimes different genders) during the two different eras. You must read the book to see what I mean! Her characters are very well drawn.I also was intrigued by the way the spiritual philosophies were woven into a conversation between characters. So interesting and never heavy or plodding. If you’re not into those subjects, you will still enjoy the conversation as part of the dialogue. If you are into it, you may find yourself going, Hmmm, I never thought of that, or Yes, that’s what I think!The book was such a fun read; it really moves along with plenty of twists and turns and the resolution did surprise me. Ms. Graham is a great storyteller. I look forward to her next one. Recommended!
Ms. Rita Graham is not only an exemplary storyteller. She is a Literary Artist who showcases her canvas in many intriguing hues and colors of breathtaking suspense. I highly recommend Karma Rising as a tantalizing page-turning mystery thriller.Ms. Graham sets the scene romancing her reading audience by embracing the descriptive realism of the characters portrayed in Karma Rising. The story unfolds in the gentle southern winds of Starcross, Georgia, where the turning points of murder, greed and deception reek havoc in the shadows of the small, but hidden in plain sight nooks and crannies of the vast landscape. Relentlessly impacting and ultimately changing the lives of those who were brought together on a once old southern plantation, now restored, the Starcross Manor and Theatre. Historical periods of time are unlocked capturing the events of the nineteenth century through the journeys of past-life regressions. The story reveals deep dark secrets from the dungeons of souls long gone, only to return spinning a web of drama masterfully multi-layered that embraces the reader with cliff-hanging excitement keeping you up through the night.As a result, I must express my personal appreciation to Ms. Graham for allowing me to unveil my insight on the eternal journey of my soul. I seek to become more knowledgeable about the metaphysical studies of parapsychology. Reflecting on my own personal evolution in the scheme of it all…. spiritual growth, déjà vu, karmic debts, soul-to-soul-connections and now who only knows “Karma Rising?”
