How closely does the passage of time intertwine with the lives of humans? Can events from the past be relived or corrected in the present? These are the interesting questions posed in Susanne Marie Knight’s new novel Past Indiscretions.

Savannah Alexander has dreams. Frightening, realistic dreams that have plagued her since childhood. When they threaten her job and her waking moments, she takes matters into her own hands, and heads out of town to her old home for a much-needed break. But events are conspiring to prevent Savannah from getting any rest, and prime amongst them are Dr. Tom Patterson and his daughter Wendy.

Tom and Savannah have a small, but significant, history, and her memories of his kindness have followed her in the intervening years. When strange coincidences reunite not only Tom and Savannah, but others from her childhood memories, the stage is set for an extraordinary journey through time.

This is a fascinating tale that manages to suspend any disbelief you may have about past lives, reincarnation, and the ability of good to triumph over evil. Savannah is a strong woman, in spite of her delicate appearance, and Tom is just overwhelmed by his feelings for her as they grow in intensity. The other characters are necessary, perfectly-written, and play an important part in this interdimensional adventure.

I did find the initial characters in the dream sequences a little confusing, but soon became comfortable with both environments. As she did in her story Janus is a Two-Headed God, Ms. Knight once again draws the reader in to the adventure, and encourages us to become part of Savannah’s often nightmarish experiences.

This story is a delightful change from many of the paranormal romances out there. It never loses touch with the everyday existence of both Tom and Savannah, but still allows a natural drift into the “other” world which has such an impact on both their lives. I recommend it to anyone who would like to believe in their dreams.
