It all begins with a mysterious gift of honey that unlocks memories of a time before birth...
With a blend of magical realism, humor, and drama, HONEYCOMB explores the surprising ways in which we are all connected within a universal beehive of shared consciousness.
Disembodied and discombobulated, the protagonist roams an ethereal place known as The Honeycomb. There, he meets John, a spiritual entity, who informs him he has been given the chance of choosing his next life from a menu of five possible existences. Coached by quirky insights from John's mystical anecdotes, the protagonist previews the lives of a tycoon whose materialism blinds him to the love of his girlfriend; a Native-American hermit whose simple existence is disrupted by an obsessive quest of redemption; an enigmatic woman driven to self-discovery; a widowed man quixotically trying to save his terminally ill daughter; and a man who endures an unexpected and harrowing desert adventure.
Through the shocking, funny, and poignant vignettes from each reviewed life, it becomes clear that, despite our inherent differences, each of us yearns for the same basic needs, dreams, and desires-that we are all intertwined in surprising and unexpected ways.
Still, how was he to choose? Was he to go for a life of wealth, one of rewarding duress, or one filled with spirituality?
In the vein of Heaven Can Wait meets The Alchemist, some may call HONEYCOMB a work of fiction; others may call it a memoir from a time before birth.
