    2. I was given a copy of this book in an exchange for an honest review. Thanks for the opportunity.A great start to a series! I really enjoyed the style of writing that the author has, a great balance of storyline and descriptive language to add to the atmosphere. The story had me grabbed within the first few chapters, and carried on building upon the suspense and intrigue right until the end. But I didn't want it to end! I loved being transported to three completely different places, culturally an [...]

    3. I received an ARC copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.It took me some time to get into this book but I'm glad I stuck with it, as after the first couple of chapters the story began to develop and grow. The story focuses on past lives and the experiences the main character (Amelia) has when she undergoes hypnosis.The topics of regression, past lives and hypnosis have always interested me, and these themes mixed with the characters in this novel were a great combination. The differe [...]

    4. I really enjoyed this book. It was like 3 story's in one but it worked really well. Amilia goes to see a hypnotist to try to help her sleep. She soon finds herself as a young girl called Adele, this also happens to be the same person she is writing about in her historical novel. She begins dreaming about Adele. The story then goes on to a healer. You begin to wonder how her present life and the ones she dreams about and visits when she is hypnotised have in common, this becomes clear as you read [...]

    5. A very interesting and thoughtful book.Delving into the possibilities of past lives and the way that are conscious minds are interlinked with our sub-conscious. Those feelings of Deja-Vu are maybe more than a coincidence, and we have possibly had some type of premonition or dream relating to that moment. Who knows?A lovely piece of writing that gets you thinking. This is the first of a trilogy, and I will definitely be reading the next two!

    6. Given the opportunity to read this book by THE Book Club on FB in exchange for an honest review. Not my usual choice of book, but pleasantly surprised. To say I was disappointed when it ended, is an understatement; my response when I realised it had finished was 'oh no!'. Cannot wait for the sequel Premonitions. Great first book from this author.

    7. **** 4 Cranky Stars ****This was a cracking good read. I sat down this afternoon and read it from start to finish with a few snacks in between.The story centers around Amelia, a recent divorcee with two children, who has lost her enthusiasm in the aftermath of the end of her marriage. She's stressed. She's lethargic. She's got writer's block, anxiety, lost her confidence, and no enthusiasm for the tasks in front of her.At the urging of a friend and colleague, Amelia makes an appointment to see a [...]

    8. Source: Views She Writes - WordPress ReviewsThe first book of Daniela Norris which I had read was “Collecting Feathers: Tales from The Other Side“. The book totally took me in a storm and changed my view of “The Other Side”. “Recognitions” is the first Novel by the author.“Recognitions” is a book written in first person narration by Amelia Rothman. But the story soon bifurcates into two other main characters Adele Durant and an African Shaman, as the characters emerging from Amel [...]

    9. After reading two books by Daniela I. Norris – one fiction and another a non-fiction, I have come to the conclusion that Daniela is neither an extraordinary writer nor an ordinary one. With her earlier non-fiction, On Dragonfly Wings: A Skeptic's Journey to Mediumship, she really captured my attention not only with the subject matter of the book but also with her thought-process, beliefs and flowing writing. And when she announced the publication of her first novel, I had a lot of expectations [...]

    10. I was given an Advance Reader Copy of this novel in exchange for an honest review, and it's a delight to review it VERY positively. Daniela Norris has created a skilled interweaving of stories in her debut novel Recognitions, revealing connections across time, place, gender, language, age, and race. Through her contemporary protagonist Amelia, a foreign rights book editor in New York whose failed marriage and role as single mother of teens present very specific challenges, the reader also experi [...]

    11. Wow, I was blown away by this book! I dont think I have ever read a book that talked about past lives and the three lives of Amelia in the present and then Adele and the African Shaman in the past, were beautifully interwoven. The secondary characters in the book were also very well fleshed out, I felt a connection with each of them. I really wanted to know what happened with each of the characters and what their connections were to each other - I had just started to speculate the whys and where [...]

    12. Thank you Daniela Norris and TBC for the opportunity to read this book and give an honest review.I would not normally go for a book of this genre but I am so glad I did, as it was really good, well written and I finished it in under a day. The main character is Amelia, a mother of two trying to deal with her marriage break up. She tries hypnosis as a way of coping, and during her sessions she goes back in time seeing two different characters from different eras, Adele a young teen from France an [...]

    13. Amelia is a mum of 2.She is trying to understand how her marriage had gone so wrong.She decides to try hypnosis and she finds out that she had had 2 past lives - Adele from France and a South African Sharman.I found out back stories the further along I read.After a few chapters, it then started to get more interesting and I enjoyed it more.This isn't a time travel story.It is a story about regression.I loved the characters which is half the battle.If you don't connect or like the characters then [...]

    14. Book received with thanks as an 'ARC' from the lovely Helen via THE Book Club.What a treat! Feels ages since I've read a book that's held me calm, relaxed and smiling. No breath-holding in anxiety. No clenched fists straining to pummel the cushions in frustration and anger. No desire to swear at the stupidity of characters who really should know better. No, this is nice. More than nice. The story alternates between present day and mid 17,00 France. It works well. Tres tres bien! Amelia Rothman t [...]

    15. I would like to thank TBC and Daniela Norris for giving me he opportunity to read this in exchange for an honest and open review.If I'd known that it was about regression and past lives I probably wouldn't have read this and I'd have missed out on an excellent book.This is 3 stories in one. The main character is Amelia, who has a very complicated life. During a regression session she encounters two other people, a young French girl from the 17th Century and a shaman living in Africa during the s [...]

    16. An ok book but didn't connect with anybody in it and felt some of the storylines needed expanded on even though there are more books to come

    17. Think Cloud Atlas, a classic story of rebirth, many lives, and reincarnation on a level that involves protagonists in other lives - but take it a step further in Recognitions, the first novel in a trilogy, which presents a woman under hypnosis who sometimes encounters a French girl on the cusp ofmarriage and sometimes an African shaman facing a village's struggles with illness and slavery.Then take these diverse lives and weave them together in the story of a modern-day woman, Amelia (who must d [...]

    18. This is a book which will appeal to anyone who has ever harboured a sneaking suspicion that the problems encountered in this life could be predetermined by damaging or limiting patterns established in former lives.Amelia is a level-headed editor from New York whose insomnia and anxiety following her marriage breakup take her to a hypnotherapist’s couch. The very first session sparks a series of dreams featuring Adele, a young woman living in eighteenth-century France who is torn between two su [...]

    19. I really enjoyed reading this book. It's simple and relaxing read. I was very happy to win this book through Giveaways.Three simple stories are nicely interwoven and create a fantastic atmosphere. And each storyline adds more to the other two. (In photography terms: nice composition) While I was reading I had the feeling that my own life became the fourth story line in the book.I most enjoyed Adele's storyline. While it might be the most simple and typically romantic one, and not what I would l [...]

    20. An intricate tale of past lives and their affects on current life. The author takes us on a personal journey by Amelia, a divorcee struggling to make sense of life. Synchronicities play an important role in our lives and for Amelia she only began to take notice after a past life regression session. This also prompts dreams and a strange feeling of downloading a story which she is writing. The book explores the connections, or recognitions, between past life experiences and relationships and thos [...]

    21. Amelia finds herself a single, working mum at the age of 40 (and a bit). Feeling somewhat unsettled and dissatisfied with her life she seeks the help of a hypnotherapist to help her resolve these issues. A sceptic at first, she finds answers to her problems.This book captured me on many levels. A unique story, four very different and seemingly unconnected lives turn out to be very intertwined. The characters are well built, I personally felt a strong connection to Noah, as an adult with add, I f [...]

    22. Recognitions is the first novel by Daniela A. Norris. She is planning to follow it up with two more books to form a trilogy. The theme is past lives, although the story can still be enjoyed without believing in reincarnation. She skilfully blends the present day story of a divorced American mother with that of the past lives of a young French girl living in the 17th century and that of an African shaman living at the height of the slave-trading era. Through the techniques of hypnotherapy, dreams [...]

    23. I found Recognitions by Daniela I. Norris to be an interesting read. I found the idea of past lives or reincarnation to be interesting. Though I personally do not believe in it. I enjoyed reading about both Adele and Amelia. However I found myself enjoying Adele more because I found her life to be more interesting. I did however find the book to be a bit too slow at times and I was wishing that the plot moved a bit faster. However as the book continued I found the pace did pick up some. I found [...]

    24. *I received this book for free through Giveaways*If I didn't know this was the first book in a planned trilogy I would be so angry at the ending. As it is I'm just frustrated because the story is left incomplete and without a full payoff. The shaman storyline and how it ties into the other storylines is not fully explained and the book ends just when it seems like we might be getting close to an explanation. Other parts of the story feel a bit disjointed too, particularly the main protagonist's [...]

    25. Thank you to Daniela Norris and TBC for a copy of Recognitions in exchange for an honest review. When I started reading this book, I had forgotten what the blurb had said the book was about. I chose to go continue blind into the book for a change, rather than remind myself. I'm glad I did this as it allowed me to slowly become engrossed in the book. The story follows Amelia, her experience with being hypnotised and regressed, and the experiences that follow. The whole idea of pre destination and [...]

    26. Thank you Daniela and TBC for the ARC of this book. It is a very unusual story as it is set in three different eras which come to life when Amelia goes for hypnosis to try and cure her insomnia caused by her marriage break up. She is very surprised to go back in time and actually see things that strike a cord in her subconscious. She also has a chance meeting with someone from her school days and everything seems entwined with what is happening to her. I can definitely recommend this book if you [...]

    27. This is one of the best books I have read for a long time, Daniele Norris has a clear and concise way of writing without being blunt or under descriptive, whilst at the same time had managed to write a story which so delicately weaves together the individual storys of four separate people in such a way that each of the main characters are utterly authentic and believable. It isn't a particularly short book but I read far too fast and am now left clicking my heels waiting for the sequel

    28. After reading Daniela I. Norris' nonfiction book, I greatly anticipated reading her first novel. And, I was not disappointed! The story is fast-paced, with well-developed, interesting characters, spanning across several centuries. The synchronicities are simply mind-blowing (just like real-life ones are), and the "recognitions" are based in past life connections.Daniela is a gifted writer, and I look forward to reading the next book in this series. I highly recommend this book!

    29. I really enjoyed this book but was disappointed when it ended. I really wanted to know more and want ready for the story to end. I was happy to learn that it is book one of a trilogy. I have to say, this book has three stories going on at once. it was honestly easy to follow. I loved the writing, very easy reading, didn't write unnecessary details. Just told the story effortlessly. Looking forward to the next one.

    30. Thank you to Daniela Norris and Tracy Fenton of The Book Club for giving me the opportunity to review this book.This was an interesting bunch of characters and not a difficult read. This is the first book of a trilogy and to find out how all these characters relate to each other the next 2 books will need to be read. I would recommend this book if you believe in past lives and how they affect your current life.
