Bea lives a simple life residing in a SW London second-hand bookshop. It had been an especially difficult year, first with Bea’s uncle dying, and then splitting up with Brandon, her philandering, druggie boyfriend. The trivial daily conversations, local faces, and ordinary calm of the shop were all she desired, but that was all about to change. No-one expects to bump into supernatural beings, let alone two opposing sects of a forgotten race. Bea’s quiet existence turns into turmoil as she slowly starts to unravel a secret past. A lost history in which love, revenge, betrayal, magic, power and karma are not mere cycles of a soul, but a sacred journey upon a web of many possibilities. The future is not set in stone, and the choices that Bea makes ripple through the cosmos. As the secret unfolds, she realises that no matter what form your soul takes there are consequences for your actions, where time has no relevance. We call it karma, they call it Vororbla. Will she cope with the heartbreak and truths revealed before her? What would you do if your very existence came into question? Join Bea on her journey as she uncovers the truth of her past walking A Carpet of Purple Flowers.
“brings love, friendship”
Five Star Review on Amazon By Lisa K
Bea is a book store owner in London living a quiet life when she starts meeting people she believes are random. It turns out they’ve intentionally inserted themselves into her life and are from another realm. Bea has a connection to them she never could’ve imagined, which complicates her life, brings love, friendship, and forces her to make impossibly difficult decisions about her future. I love this book. The story incorporates our world and the characters from the other world beautifully, making paranormal events seem perfectly natural. Nothing felt forced and the pace of uncovering another realm and its people was done so well that it’s easy to lose yourself in the story without struggling to comprehend while being introduced to it. I hope this book is going to turn into a series.
