About the Book

"I found it spooky but intriguing, sharing a dream with a Viennese Opera Singer. Eager to have a peek at Phillipe Weintraub, I arrived at the opera early and waited with restless impatience for the performance to begin.

As soon as the curtain went up, the spine-tingling aha hit me. I looked at the young man with the dark curls playing Rodolfo and shivered with the sense of the uncanny. I felt I was looking at someone I knew, someone I'd been close to. I came out in goosebumps. Could this cockamamie story of reincarnation be true after all?

I have no idea who played the other roles that night. My gaze was glued on Rodolfo, and whenever he left the stage I waited for him to reappear. The thought kept going through my mind: I promised to wait for this man and I didn't wait. Now we are both alone in a different time and place ."

" Best reincarnation romance since Somehwere in Time "-Marlie Moses, author of The Transmogrification of Sydney Pellegrini.
