Two people, a world apart, separated by time and grief, their lives destined to converge... but what happens when finally they meet? Almost forty years ago, on an ashram in India, a devastating series of events led to Daniel’s complete psychotic breakdown. Since then he has worked hard to remake his identity, keeping his history under wraps. Now a successful psychotherapist, but with his once happy marriage unexpectedly crumbling, Daniel wakes from an ominous dream, warning him that his past is coming back to haunt him. Meanwhile, shocked by her mother’s deathbed revelations, Mira is hunting down her father. A lesbian artist, renowned for intimate, erotic photographs of women, she is determined to settle old scores. Love is not initially anywhere on Mira’s agenda, yet in meeting the enigmatic Luce she finds a startling twist in her search for truth. Daniel’s tortured memories, recorded in his journal, connect the present with his mysterious past. What really did happen in India? Daniel’s wife Callie also has secrets, and her reasons for keeping them. Can their relationship survive? And what will happen when Mira confronts the realities of her own beginnings and the story that has sustained her whole identity? This original and complexly layered novel reveals the shifting nature of truth, the indestructible depth of human connection, the power of negative enchantment, and ultimately the redemptive spirit of love.

Lesley Hayes lives in Oxford and prior to training as a psychotherapist was regularly published in literary and women's magazines, and for two years had a weekly slot on BBC Radio Oxford reading her short stories. Her successful career as a psychotherapist took her away from fiction writing, but brought quite different rewards, and she was aware of using many of same creative skills and insights. During the past seven years the compelling urge to write fiction has again emerged, and she has given in gracefully to the inevitable return to her first love. Her five novels 'The Drowned Phoenician Sailor','A Field Beyond Time', 'Round Robin', 'Dangerous People', and 'The Other Twin' are all available on kindle and in paperback, along with five collections of short stories. Now that the genie has once again escaped from the bottle, more will soon follow.
