After the Rose is the third part in the trilogy ‘The Mystery of the Wooden Rose’ and is the culmination of an evocative story that begins when young Gypsy lad Eddie carves a token for his childhood sweetheart. In this latest book, ‘After the Rose,’ Alina is asked by the police to help with a cold case, a missing teenager, and in spite of the risk to herself, and the challenges she might face, she agrees. She has made a promise to the Goddess to help those in need whenever she can, hoping and believing that good deeds will in some way break the curse made by her ancestor Mary so long ago.
Alina’s pagan faith has taught her that what you put out comes back to you threefold and her mission is to break the curse so that it no longer affects anyone especially the children that she hopes to have in the future. Every month, in the dark of the Moon, she performs her banishing ritual. Will this be enough, or will Alina’s future happiness be marred by sins of the past?
In the first book, ‘The Wooden Rose,’ Alina finds the token 100 years after it was lost, and this sparks a chain of events at a time in her life when she has lost everything that she holds dear to her. Embarking on a new path, she solves a mystery, finds love, and reconnects with her roots through the appearance of a ghost.
In the second book, a prequel, ‘Before the Rose,’ the Gypsy’s curse is revealed and we learn that it is not just the sins of the fathers that come back to haunt us, but also the sins of the mothers.
About the Author
Soraya began her professional writing career as the resident astrologer for The Sunday Post newspaper. In 2001 Soraya was invited to write her first 'how to' reference book, 'Book of Spells', which continues to be a bestseller and since then she has gone on to write other titles in this genre. As a Reiki Master Teacher Soraya devoted much of her time to developing Reiki Teaching manuals that maintain traditional methods yet provide best practice for expected educational standards and her courses were approved to graduate level by SQA. Soraya has since published The Reiki Training Manual to share her experience. Although now retired from teaching Reiki, Soraya's methods are still being taught by Master Teachers that were trained by her. Her psychic skills have been put to good use in one of her latest books 'Psychic Guidance'. This was inspired because readers of her Book of Runes commented that when they had a problem all they had to do was open her Rune book and they would find their answer. With this in mind Soraya put Psychic Guidance together to help others in times of need. All they have to do is think of their question and open the book at a random page to find their guidance. Soraya's secret ambition had been to write novels but she always felt too busy to devote any time to doing what she wanted to do most. Her first novel The Wooden Rose, (A symbol of love, a mystery unravelled) finally achieved that dream and it has been followed by the prequel, Before the Rose, (the Gypsy's Curse) and the third book in the trilogy After The Rose, (Breaking the Curse). Soraya is a best-selling author, a White Witch, a Psychic Consultant, and Numerologist.
