Soldier, guitarist, Canada, air-hostess, reincarnation, South Africa and lonely housewife ? what vital dynamics mediate convergence, what do they have in common for the characters involved? Hurt in a failing relationship, Frank Valourin balances fragile sensitivity against unremitting desire for spiritual partnership. Human company is vital to him now ? aloneness not a natural human condition. That however is also a paradox ? he never wants to find himself in a position where he can hurt another human heart or mind. Injuring another purely by being your best possible self triggers vast introspection ? he has almost conclusively decided on reluctance to ever involve himself in a serious relationship again. That too, is a traumatic awareness, as he feels that he has much love to give, and so wants to be loved. That need for a sense of completion, loving spiritual security, that sense of mutually sensitive nurturing and living life in the fullness and joy of resonant companionship that nothing can exceed, consumes him. A human connection halfway across the world changes everything, its depth beyond anything he has experienced. Could this be the beginning of a new life?
