Book Review-Cloudy Rainbow-Debbie De Louise

Monday, September 12, 2022

Dulcie, who never had a pet growing up is at college when her roommate decided to bring a tiny kitten that she had been feeding outside in to the dorm room. Dulcie was nervous because no pets were allowed but became very attached to the little furball. She inherited the kitten when her roommate had to leave college. They ended up inseparable and moved with Dulcie when she did.

Dulcie's fiance died in a car accident and her kitty was getting older. She entered a virtual game where she met a person. You won't believe who it turned out to be! Then he was in a car accident--in a coma. There is a bit of soul transfer and reincarnation involved--then her kitty had to be put to sleep.

If you have ever had no choice you will recognize the emotional upheaval with losing a beloved pet. I found myself crying at the description-it is very realistic. So was the ending when her kitty came back in the form of another kitten. My cat Gremlin often visits me in my apartment while my current cat Baby is sound asleep----I feel something jumping on my bed. It has to be him!!

About the Book: (from Amazon)

This revised edition celebrates the 10th anniversary of the author’s first published novel.

When you lose a loved one, whether it’s a relative, friend, or precious pet, you wonder where that special soul has gone and if you will ever see him or her again. For Dulcie Mills, Long Island computer programmer, the answer may lie between a virtual world and the real one, between the past and the present, between dreams and reality.

Unable to get over her fiancée’s death and facing the impending loss of her 15-year-old cat, Dulcie escapes to a virtual world. When Dulcie’s best friend accepts a job from a clairvoyant who offers predictions regarding Dulcie’s dead fiancée and Dulcie becomes attracted to an online stranger, history begins to repeat itself in ways that are both promising and terrifying. What Dulcie discovers through a virtual séance may mean the only chance she has left for love or death itself.

Addressing topics of reincarnation and soul transfer in similar ways as Greg Iles’ Sleep No More and Nora Roberts’ Midnight Bayou, Cloudy Rainbow features an interesting mix of technology and the paranormal and will also appeal to cat lovers.
