Echoes of Time is a story of love and hate, but it is ultimately a story of forgiveness so profound that the original injury is almost forgotten, leaving mere echoes in the nothingness of time. It is the author's personal story of self-discovery as she re-lived other lifetimes. With the release of thousands of years of pain came a love so deep and rich that the story had to be told, and the love had to be shared. Soul mates, Astara and Alterra, began life on this planet in total love, but the teeming sensuality overcame Astara's better judgment, and she began a liaison with a primate that caused her downfall. Alterra left her to die alone on planet Earth, thinking to never return, but he was drawn back by love, while Astara pushed him away by her hate and resentment. Life after life, Astara tried to replace Alterra by repeatedly incarnating with the same primate. Correcting Astara's mistake becomes a lifelong project of the present incarnation of the author.
