politics, history and an amazing mystery in one.
crashed in Danish waters between the towns of Nykøbing Falster and Vordingborg. There were five casualties reported and one survivor. Just two weeks before, Hitler invaded Poland.
I honestly think it was more of a personal thing than anything else. There was
a lot of mention of psychics and reincarnation and I don’t believe any of that
myself, so I already felt a bit skeptical about it all.
unsolved mystery in the past, where the reincarnated versions of some of the
victims were haunted by nightmares of the incident. Maggie, Bill and Catalina
are eager to solve the case, many years after its occurrence, with very little
information to go on. As well as that, the mystery goes into the emotional and
scientific aspects of things.
free, looking for the perfect man and building herself up. She’s scared of what
the past might unlock for her, and yet she isn’t going to run away but stand by
Bill and her new found friend Catalina to dig their way through this together.
I have to admire her bravery, which is one of the things that draws me to her.
simplistic and to the point. You can tell the romance isn’t the main element of
this story because it isn’t drawn out or exaggerated or anything. And I liked
that. I thought it was nice for a change.
got a lot of names (when you’re dealing with history you do get this a lot) and
I felt myself getting confused as to who was who at some points. On top of
that, seeing as this is a historical mystery and we’re dealing with past events
there is a lot of information involving the case to be taken in. Sometimes I
felt like I was getting an information overload :/
five stars. I think other people might like it if they have different beliefs
from me though! And for those who don’t mind a bit of non-fiction meddling with
M.C.V. Egan is the pen name chosen by Maria Catalina Vergara Egan. Catalina was born in Mexico City, Mexico in 1959, the sixth of eight children, in a traditional Catholic family.
From a very young age, she became obsessed with the story of her maternal grandfather, Cesar Agustin Castillo–mostly the story of how he died.
She spent her childhood in Mexico. When her father became an employee of The World Bank in Washington D.C. in the early 1970s, she moved with her entire family to the United States. Catalina was already fluent in English, as she had spent one school year in the town of Pineville, Louisiana with her grandparents. There she won the English award, despite being the only one who had English as a second language in her class.
In the D.C. suburbs she attended various private Catholic schools and graduated from Winston Churchill High School in Potomac, Maryland in 1977. She attended Montgomery Community College, where she changed majors every semester. She also studied in Lyons, France, at the Catholic University for two years. In 1981, due to an impulsive young marriage to a Viking (the Swedish kind, not the football player
kind), Catalina moved to Sweden where she resided for five years and taught at a language school for Swedish, Danish, and Finnish businesspeople. She then returned to the USA, where she has lived ever since. She is fluent in Spanish, English, French and Swedish.
Maria Catalina Vergara Egan is married and has one son who, together with their five-pound Chihuahua, makes her feel like a full-time mother. Although she would not call herself an astrologer she has taken many classes and taught a few beginner classes in the subject.
The celebrated her 52nd birthday on July 2nd, 2011, and gave herself self-publishing The Bridge of Deaths as a gift.
