Fiction by Katrina Rasbold

The Dance Card is a story told in conversation between a divorced woman and her therapist that quickly evolves into a fascinating journey into the theories of reincarnation, introducing the idea of “looping” through multiple “life treks.” Kate Kingston carries with her certain memories that lead her to connect with a particular psychiatrist. As their relationship progresses, they explore the implications of memories from other concurrent life treks and the idea of a “dance card” of people we are intended to encounter during each of our life journeys. Why do we feel deja vu or an instant attraction or resistance to other people we encounter? What if we really do have a soul group that comes into each of our life journeys to help us have certain experiences and learn certain lessons? The Dance Card will make you smile, make you feel, and most of all, will make you think about the significant relationships you have had in your life and their purpose in your divine mission on earth.

“I am still pondering this book. I could not put it down, carrying my e-reader app with me so I could read in the little spaces of my day – something I generally do not do. The author expressed an idea about what happens after we die that is so compelling, it has stayed with me after finishing the book. I’m still not sure how I feel about it or whether or not I can embrace it as “truth” – at least for myself – but – it haunts me. I love anything that haunts me like that…that stays in my mind and infiltrates my senses and somehow shifts my view of life and the world around me. This little book did just that. I will be reading it over and over – I am certain of that.”  …Enchantress

“This writer has a way of drawing you into her words. Couldn’t stop reading. Had to see how it would end.”  …Country Girl
