This is a 5 Star read for anyone who is even remotely interested in genetic or ancestral memory. Mortman tackles the subject extremely well in this novel with believable characters. The premise is: If we can inherit specific traits from our ancestors, why not their memories? For those of us who have experienced a sensation of having "been here before" even though we never set foot in the place prior to a trip, or seen a photograph where it resonates, this will make a lot of sense. There would be questions about ancestral memory v. reincarnation but who's to say they aren't linked? Couldn't put this down.
