Dana Landgrave might be crazy, and her parents think so too.  They send her to a therapist to help her figure out why she is having such scary and violent nightmares.  Dana doesn't much like Dr. Sprague, but somehow he manages to persuade her to try hypnosis.  In the present, Dana is a gifted photographer, always catching a glimpse of the world that no one else can see.  But with Dr. Sprague's help she discovers a past life in London where she was a gifted painter who fixes the work of a well-known man who gets all the credit for her talent.  And in a second past life, she stumbles upon a crime committed over 400 years ago ­ was Dana the victim?  A witness?  Or worse?  A trip to England with her family and her boyfriend Chase help Dana unravel some of the threads of her complicated past, but after she comes back home, she finds that death might not be quite finished with her yet.  If you like stories with mystery, travel, murder, and romance, you just might like The Red Thread, by Roderick Townley.  (Betsy Kahn,, librarian)
