Past lives, New beginnings
Secrets Lost is a story of discovery and awakening, set on a llama farm in rural Western Washington. Morgan Hill dons a pair of spectacles she finds hidden in an heirloom trunk and begins to catch a glimpse of lost generations and long forgotten family secrets. Her expansion and awakening flourish when she meets Yuri Bozek, a mysterious lumberjack who is more than his occupation implies. Drawing on his intuition and a deep energetic awareness, Yuri guides Morgan to discover the true essence of love. Their paths converge in the dark attic as the heirloom trunk exposes ancient bonds neither could have imagined.
Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?
This one certainly did touched my heart and my soul... makes me want to know that beautful place, both the B&B, and the inner peace. I really like this audiobook and do recommend.
Would you consider the audio edition of Secrets Lost: Secrets Remembered to be better than the print version?
This book starts out quaint but before you know it you can't put it down. A great read.
Have you listened to any of Rosemary Benson’s other performances before? How does this one compare?
No but I will from now on.
I really enjoyed this story! It was strange & different & even fun! This book is about healers and spirits and the unknown, but is told to us in a very enjoyable, fun format! Morgan has been seeing orbs, lights and strange things for as long as she can remember. Morgan is a world traveler and has decided to settle down with something new, so she buys a farm & turns it into a Bed & Breakfast. Morgan';s friends convince Morgan to write a book about her past & family life as Morgan has a unique way with words. Later at an Authors event Morgan meets Yuri. Yuri has many strange things about him that draws Morgan to him.
Morgan offers Yuri a job for the winter at her B&B. Yuri teaches Morgan more about her powers. Most of all, Yuri teaches Morgan life is never really over, it just changes into something else!
Kudos to both the author Marcia Breeze who did a wonderful job writing this. The plot was great & the story held my interest for sure. Also to the Narrator, Rosemary Benson who has a wonderful voice. The accents were spot on. I really enjoyed listening to her. Good job ladies!
If you could sum up Secrets Lost: Secrets Remembered in three words, what would they be?
A magical story which brings to life a calm account of transformation and acceptance.
What other book might you compare Secrets Lost: Secrets Remembered to and why?
Like Water for Chocolate by: Laura Esquivel. Although the story lines are very different, and the writing approach is different, they both show magical realism. They are both stories which show the mysticism of everyday life and love.
Which character – as performed by Rosemary Benson – was your favorite?
It's tough to choose a character I like best with Rosemary Benson's performance. I felt that each character was so true to the written word of the author. I loved the Biz character, because her character in general was the most out of place in the story (she was the skeptic of all the magical happenings), but Rosemary was able to show her vulnerability after the death of Biz's sister, and it immediately made me love the character.
If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?
A story of uplifting transformation seen through the spectacles of serene and deep understanding.
Any additional comments?
This is a wonderful performance by an incredible narrator. I felt completely engulfed in the story. The book is a series of events which unveil the main characters true self. If you are interested in metaphysical philosophy, magic or simply someone's transformation to their true self, listen to this story.
