The soul is eternal, and no more so than in Steve Lindahl's White Horse Regressions. It is the story of a group of individuals destined to share their lives throughout time, be it in ancient China during the Han dynasty, in 19th-century London during Jack the Ripper's reign of terror, or in a small town rocked by murder in present-day Vermont.
It's been almost a year since Hannah Hersman's girlfriend was killed, and the police still have no leads, no suspects, and no one in custody. Undeterred and longing for closure, Hannah calls in Glen Wiley, a renowned hypnotist, as a last resort.
Glen quickly discovers that in a past life, Hannah was a prostitute in Victorian London named Rose, and her girlfriend was Annie Chapman, a victim of Jack the Ripper. In fact many of Hannah's friends and acquaintances were similarly connected to her, not just then in London but in multiple lives and multiple places throughout history. In all these incarnations, their existence is tied to a murderous plot that Hannah and Glen must uncover to ensure their future lives can avoid the pain and misery of losing their loved ones.
White Horse Regressions is a compelling supernatural thriller that drops you down the rabbit hole and spits you out into the filthy streets of a not-too-long-ago London, the palatial estates of a long-forgotten China, and the seedy underbelly of small-town America.
