Three Souls book cover

Preview of Three Souls: a novel set in China

Pinghu, China

January 1935

We have three souls, or so I’d been told.

But only in death could I confirm this.

The moment the priest spoke the last prayer and sealed my coffin, I awoke and floated upward in a slow drift of incense smoke, until I could travel no farther. I settled in the rafters of the small temple, a sleepy wraith perched in the roof beams. I had knowledge, but no memory. My first thoughts were confused, for clearly this was the real world. But surely I no longer belonged here. When would I take my journey to the afterlife?

Another sold out event for Victoria Chinatown Lioness. Fabulous food, as to be expected  at  Golden City Restaurant, followed by an engaging  talk by Ms Chang.
