Past Recall

Past Recall is one of those alchemical reads that left me a different person than when I first opened its pages. The title is apt, making me recall the characters and their lives with a deep sense of 'what if?' and wondering if we really do hold the power to change the world. - Valerie Storey, author of 'The Essential Guide for New Writers'

This debut novel by Nita Hughes blends an ancient story of terrifying persecution with a vision of hope for the world we know today. 

The tale is told by a woman photographer who unexpectedly discovers information from the past about a spiritual secret, a treasure so coveted that an entire culture was massacred in an attempt to own it. Her search for answers propels the characters of this romantic thriller through time as history threatens to repeat itself. 

Initially we are introduced to Clotilde and Jean de Mirepoix, devout Cathars in 13th century France. Their world of growing enlightenment is being extinguished by a reign of terrorism.

Clotilde and Jean seek refuge in Montsegur, a Cathar sanctuary thought to be impregnable. But their safety fades in importance as they attempt to secure the Cathar treasure, described in the archives of the Catholic church as “so powerful as to change the face of the world”.  Vowing to safeguard the treasure throughout time, their souls commit to return and unveil it at “worlds end”.

We discover that this time has come, as photographer Dana Palmer and writer Eric Taylor collaborate on a story whose secret may provide the world’s salvation - or its destruction.

Reader Reviews for "Past Recall"

Reviewed by Nita Hughes 3/15/2009
Nita Hughes' debut novel is a fascinating journey to discover an ancient connection between love and wisdom. It incorporates two stories that are interwoven between the 13th Century and modern day France. We learn about the mystery and magic of the Cathars, an enlightened group of people who were massacred during the Inquisition. We discover that their cultural extinction was justified by those in power because they were said to control a treasure that could transform the world. In the story, this treasure is meant to be rediscovered in today's troubled world, but the same dark forces that tried to extinguish the light in the past are still present on our planet today. Their selfish desire to exploit the secrets and wield more power creates a tale of danger, romance, and spiritual wisdom that keeps the reader spellbound.
