Amelia Rothman, a foreign rights editor from New York, has a turbulent personal life. 

Adele Durand, a young French woman, marries the wrong man in 18th century revolutionary France. 

What do these two women have in common? Is it possible that an apprentice medicine man in 15th century Africa and an ancient sword hold the answers to a question that transcends time itself?

A great insight in to past lives<br />

A realistic story illustrating how many lives can be entwined with each other. I enjoy piecing the different lives together and imagining who was who and how the different lives in different centuries had affected them in this century.

Past lives and mysticism, Part II.

I don't usually go straight from one book to the next in a series, but the first book felt incomplete and I had the second one in my library. Now I again find myself with an incomplete ending...but the third book has yet to be published, so I'm left hanging. This is actually pretty frustrating and whilst I agree that some issues should be left unresolved to encourage us to read on, this is taking it to extremes and probably for me, resulted in the 4* rather than 5* rating.

The narrative is a continuation of the story of modern day Amelia, 17th Century Adele and an African witch doctor from the 16th Century. The narrative is leading us towards a connection between the characters from different eras and is already suggesting that these earlier lives are previous incarnations of the characters from current time.
I have really enjoyed these first two books although they are both short and felt as if they should have been a single book. I am on the fence about reincarnation, but as a narrative subject I am quite happy to take it on board.

As with the first book, this was narrated by Natalie Naudus Bradner, who does a great job, although again, I would have liked a little difference between the narration for the different eras, just to keep the listener in the right time zone.
Great series.

Definitely worth a listen

This is the second short book in the Recognitions series, continuing the story of Amelia and her quest to learn more about her past lives. Once again we meet Adele Durand from 18th century France, and the apprentice medicine man in 15th century Africa. Whilst I did enjoy both of these stories, I definitely feel more invested in the story of Adele. I also enjoyed reading more about the life of Amelia and her relationship with Noah. The book doesn't have a very satisfying ending which just makes me want to listen to Book 3 in the trilogy asap.

Once again the narration by Natalie Naudus helped to bring the story to life.

Book review

I enjoy how the story is told in three different time zones and moves effortlessly from one to
the other. Essentially it is a love story. I look forward to listening to the second book to see what else will emerge in the reincarnated tale.

worth a read

Same as with the first book. Not my normal genre but really enjoyed it. Narrator was really good which always makes any book so much better.

Perhaps if I had read book 1

This is a good story with good dialogue by the author, However I needed a little more story line. The narration was great Mata;oe Naidus gave a good performance. I felt a little lost going back and forth in the timelines. As I said in the Headline perhaps I needed to read book 1 first. I am looking forward to reading the next book to tie up some of the lose ends.

The perfect follow up to Recollections!

Absolutely fabulous. Rarely is a sequel as good as the original book. While This works well as a stand-alone, it’s an excellent continuation of the story. The transition between centuries is smooth and easy to navigate and the narration is so good you forget you are listening instead of reading.

Good Sequal to Recognitions

This is the sequal to Recognitions but I don't think you have had to read Recognitions to understand this book. It was good but I have my same complaint as the first one....I wanted to find out what happens in the end and you don't.

I like the authors writing i just find (at my age) I can't space books too far apart. I had read Recognitions a while ago for the author and had to go and reread/listen so I could go into this one. I wish I would have known that I didn't have to, you get the gist of what is happening
