If you believe in soul mates and lovers who are reincarnated and fated to search for the partner with whom they have had disastrous relationships in the past, Windwalker will please you.
Photographer Justine Calloway's guilt over the death of her brother results in a withdrawal from her career. She takes a job as a caretaker of an old mansion with a bleak past and feels sorry for herself, not just because of her guilt, but because she is missing something in her life...a soul mate, a predestined partner to complete her.
Adam Buchanan left Paradine Park after killing his brother and has spent the past nine years in a secluded South African town writing letters to his soul mate. He knows she exists and is determined to find her. How this is supposed to happen is unclear since Adam doesn't really plan to leave.
Wonder of wonders, however, Justine and Adam are searching for each other. She ends up at Paradine Park with a strange attraction to the missing man; Adam sees her photographs and "recognizes" Justine as his soul mate.
Both Justine and Adam are responsible for the deaths of their brothers. Maybe they were meant for each other.
I feel a little bad about the snarky review, but this one isn't as bad as the review for The Collector of Dying Breaths by M. J. Rose which I've scheduled for March. Guess I'm just not a soul mate kind of gal.
