“My death in ’59 came the way I always feared it would: in the claustrophobic underground heat of a Cape Breton coal mine.”
Luke MacIsaac has shameful secrets. He lived a horrible life and now that he’s dead, he can’t shake the memories of his entire violent past. He wants out of death, and to escape, he needs to be born again.
He chooses to live and sets in motion the very thing he’d hoped to avoid: images of war, childhood abuse, and the tortured life of a brother he loved and failed. To make matters worse, his life costs his chosen mother a great deal–especially since she wasn’t supposed to survive her own birth.
From tragedy and loss, ONE INSULAR TAHITI is a coming of age literary novel about reincarnation and past lives from a Canadian author that demonstrates how sometimes the greatest light can come from the deepest darkness.
