Liz Morrison, a 1980 graduate of Newton Senior High School, has authored a new fiction book titled “Soul Mates: When Romance and Reincarnation Collide.”

“I loved writing this book because it combines my passion to research history and my love of romance novels,” Morrison said.

The book introduces readers to two characters, Wills Harrington and Charlotte “Charlie” Longley. Charlie is a senior in high school from St. Louis, Mo. She is traveling to Rouen, France, to learn French and explore her obsession of World War I. Her obsession is fueled by her dreams of a World War I nurse and a handsome British soldier. Wills is having a severe case of identity crisis, taking him also on a journey to Rouen to visit the city where his great-great uncle died during World War I. Wills is wondering if his life is intertwined with his uncle. Wills’ journey also deals with his dream about a beautiful nurse he’s trying to find as well.

“Charlie and Wills will have an electrifying meeting,” Morrison said. “They will go on a journey trying to connect the dots from the past while dealing with the problems of the modern day with frenemies, a stalker and their electric connection as they search for a World War I treasure.”

Morrison’s journey started with having a passion for history ignite while attending NHS.

“My passion for history, especially World War I history, was the inspiration to write ‘Soul Mates’ and giving a unique romantic plot made it a fun journey,” Morrison said.

The journey for Morrison doesn’t end with “Soul Mates” as she has two more books in progress.

“All three of the books are separate from each other although some people have asked for a sequel to ‘Soul Mates’,” Morrison said.

The journey of Morrison and “Soul Mates” is slated to release in December 2014 to ebooks and will have a print release slated for early-2015.

“The book will be available for purchase through Amazon, Barnes & Nobles and other leading retailers,” Morrison said. “I hope these books will inspire others to explore history, while enjoying a unique romance.”
