SLIPPING BACK & FORTH BETWEEN PARALLELS:
"John" has had the "perfect" life, or at least that is what he can remember to be true, believing in it. His heart is devoted to a woman with the beauty and poise of a model, but a sudden injury finds him in a place questioning who he is, where he is from, and twisting his frame of thought. Everything seems real, even the dreams touching all senses, yet slipping back and forth between each one, to a place where he is with Isabella, and to another with a new love beginning.
There is far more to Isabella than meets the eye, bringing him through memories but ones he struggles to recall, and the merging love with Lillian contains unusual connections from her life to his, scattered amidst the dreams, and this surreal sense of reality. John finds himself grasping portions of each moment to hold onto as he discovers more of how imperfect his life and relationship really had been, or even if those portions he feels aware of had occurred at all.
"SLIPPING BACK AND FORTH BETWEEN PARALLELS" twists in the wonders of the mind, with trauma, infidelity, tragedy, and a passionate love, leaving the reader questioning each moment to figure out what part of John's life is real, and what part is a dream. A tale of what it means to push to the back of the mind pain, and the attempts to recall, let go, and move forward, but can it move forward, and will love stay?
