Marcus Belling is a world-famous hypnotist.
For the past 20 years, many exclusive clients have beneﬁted from his skills and desire to help people.
However, everything changes when a mysterious woman named Anne Pauline Roux knocks on his door.
She holds a rare power when hypnotized, which will affect both their lives in ways they could never imagine. Her unique power is so strong that it doesn’t stay secret for long.
Marcus’ archrival and fellow hypnotist, Josef Salvaterra, has been looking for a way to shut down Marcus’ business for years. Pauline may just give him the opportunity he’s been waiting for. If he can work this to his advantage, he could be recognised as the greatest hypnotist the world has ever seen.
With such a prize at stake, is there anything he’s not prepared to do?
Reading this book is a hypnotic process that will lead you to question the meaning of destiny and truth, and restore faith in our ability to ﬁnd the good, even when we are not looking for it.
Maria Inês Rebelo, was born in Lisbon in 1985.
She remembers having started reading Jules Verne’s books many, many years ago because it was the only collection of books she had at the time, since it was a way of following a story , faithfully. After that, she began to read more and more until adulthood, especially novels by writers like Isabel Allende.
After being an avid reader from an early age, she began writing her own texts and in 2015, she published ‘O Trabalho Voluntario: uma reflexao juridica e social’ (Voluntary Work: a legal and social reflection) through Chiado Editora, Portugal.
‘Hypnosis: A Return to the Past’ is her first novel. Together with this book, Rebelo wrote ‘The light of Marva: The story before Jasmine’ (a bonus available free to readers).
She is impressed by the mastery of certain writers, and has some literary devotions. She thinks books change the world, and that writing is an instrument of power. For good, and for evil.
