Infinite Faith (Book 4)

infinitefaith- small ebook

Maya continues to delve into her past lives after death, and strives to complete the tentative journey required to reunite with her loved ones in heaven.

The darkest hour is just before dawn, and in Maya’s last hour, the test of faith proves darkest with two more incarnations: a young woman caught up fighting in the American Civil War, and a German woman institutionalized at the deadly rise of Hitler’s power as he plans to purge Germany of its mentally ill. Maya is tested to a breaking point as she learns the most ethereal of spiritual lessons: faith. Faith in herself, in others, in the future, to the path, and to a higher purpose, even when things don’t go as planned.

  1. I downloaded the first book in the infinite series some time ago along with several other books and skipped over it a few times before starting it. I was immediately swallowed whole by the stories. I found myself unable to stop reading. I downloaded all the books in the series onto my kobo account and would fall asleep reading them. I read at stoplights and grocery shopping, breaks at work and while cooking dinner for a week or two until I finished all 3 of them currently published. I think about them all day and wonder if it could be possible… I thank you for spending the time to share your visions with us. I reflect about the people in my life and how long I might have known them. It is a fascinating thought. Thank you for the rich characters and the connectedness in your stories. I can’t wait for the last one.

    • Cimras, that’s so funny that you read at stoplights and while grocery shopping because that is how I wrote it! I bring a little notebook around with me where ever I go since I’m always coming up with lines and ideas on the run. I’m so glad you’ve enjoyed them so much. It makes me so incredibly excited to hear that readers are thinking about who would be in their ‘soul groups’ and how long they might have known them for. Writers strive to give people a break from their lives for a moment but to hear that you keep thinking about my books after you’ve read the last page in my ultimate compliment. Thanks so very much for letting me know and I hope you won’t have to wait too long for Infinite Faith (I’m finally getting some good writing time in!).

      • Just wanted to let you know that I am still telling friends about these beautiful thought provoking stories. My uncle was telling me a few weeks ago about reading Jonathan Livingston Seagull for the first time and how touched he is by Bachs stories, I insisted he must read your series as well. Then this past weekend my son and his friend were home from college telling me how much they were enjoying the book called prophecy and I shared your series with them… I am sitting here thinking of you and your rich characters again tonight. I am hoping your littles are peacefully sleeping and your life is as rich with joys as mine. I just wanted to send you encouragement to keep writing, letting you know that we are anxiously awaiting the next chapter. Thank you again for sharing your gift with all of us. I appreciate you!

    • (Sorry to reply to your first comment. My blog wouldn’t let me respond to the latest comment)

      What a lovely comment to wake up to! Thank you so much for letting others know about my book and I’m completely in awe that my series would be discussed along side Jonathan Livingston Seagull. What an honor (and I’ll have to check this Prophecy book out now). I’m so glad to hear that the series has stayed on your mind all this time (a good thing since the last one is taking a bit longer than expected). I need encouragement more than ever now (it’s so hard to carve out an hour of writing time everyday) and I thank you for all of your blessings and appreciation. It’s readers like you that inspire me to keep writing. I greatly appreciate you as well 🙂

    • You make a lot of good points. I really do hope that the afterlife is similar to what is described in these books.

  2. I downloaded the first book when I saw it in
    A promotion online. I couldn’t put it down. Had to read the next two. They kept getting better. Can’t wait for the last one to.come out

    • Oh, thank you for telling me that, Michelle! I love to hear that each book is improving. I’m working so hard on Infinite Faith…hopefully it will be the best installment yet 🙂

  3. I am pleased to read that Infinite Faith is being crafted. My wife and I love the series. You make history come alive in a way that I’ve rarely encountered. The mundane becomes magical and the earthy becomes ethereal. You weave the lives of Maya with those of her Soul Family/Group in a beautiful tapestry that spotlights the joy of growth, experience, and redemption.

    Thank you for helping me to remember that I am on a journey with my friends, family, and even my “enemies” as we each help the others to learn the lessons that we need.

    I have to wonder what you will write next. Will you continue to spin with a metaphysical thread? I certainly hope so!

    • Glenn, if you are not already a writer than I must tell you that you should be writing. You have such a way with words and gave me goosebumps with every sentence! It means the world to me that I release my words out and people like you and your wife truly ‘get’ what I intended readers to receive. I think you should be writing my book descriptions since you have done a better job at summing my books up than me 🙂 Actually, can I have your permission to quote you on my Amazon page? I keep coming up with so many future book ideas, some metaphysical, some historical fiction, and some fantasy, but I have to stay focused on finishing Infinite Faith. Having three kids is slowing progress down quite a bit, but I love working on it. Thank you so much for letting me know how my books have touched you and in such a beautiful way. It means everything to me.

      • You certainly have my permission to quote me on your Amazon page. Frankly I’m ashamed that I haven’t reviewed it their myself.

  4. Oh no. I am homophonically challenged. Please disregard the the spelling of “there” as “their” in my last post. Deeply embarrassed.

    • No need to be embarrassed, Glenn. You should see my drafts before the editors get through it! No need to review, I’m going to paste your beautiful words up somewhere where everyone can see it. (I do think you might want to think about blurb writing though. You have such a way with words!)

  5. I stumbled upon your series by accident and actually read book 3 first. I loved it and went back to find the first two. They are amazing stories and I love the detail you put in them. I have been retelling the story to my Meema and husband; it seems to be all I can talk about to anyone who will listen. Thank you for such a wonderful series, and I wait to read your next book.

    • Thanks so much for letting me know, Victoria. It’s all I seem to talk about too! (My family is so sick of hearing about the series ;)) You’re the first person I know of that has read the books out of order and I’m so relieved you were able to follow it (and enjoy it) still! I’m wondering if you might get something different out of it that way. Especially since the characters are much more developed in the third. How interesting to then go back to their beginnings! What a great book club question! I’m working hard on book 4 and thanks so much for the support!

  6. I love this series!! Found the first book while looking to fill my kindle for vacation reads. After a few pages I was hooked!! Read the 3 available books while on that vacation!! Cant wait for the 4th book. I have tried to get on the notification list but the link has not worked for me. I have tried several times with 2 different emails. But I will sure keep up with the web site so I can get it as soon as its available!

    • Thanks so much for taking the time to let me know that something is wrong with the mailing list subscription. I did realize that the subscription rates have dropped in the last two months but I thought it was due my lag in advertising! I tried to sign up myself and found the same problem. I wrote to Mailchimp right away and I’ll let you know on this thread when it’s back up and running. Also, I’m so glad that you’ve loved all the books so far and that must have been a nice, extended vacation in order to read those last two long books! I’m working on the fourth book everyday and making good progress. Thanks so much for your patience and your support!

      • Tracy, I contacted my mailing list company and they told me that I had to get my own domain email to help keep the subscription emails (and the book release notifications) out of the spam box—or worse, they they’re bounced out completely! Please try to sign up again (it sometimes takes an hour to get the confirmation email) and hopefully this will help. I’ve also heard that putting my email address (lewaters@infiniteseries.net) as your contact will help make sure it doesn’t get kicked out. Let me know if it still doesn’t work. Thanks so much again for letting me know about this problem. I wouldn’t have realized it for ages 🙂

  7. I can not wait for Infinite Faith! I stumbled upon the series through amazon in 2011 and could not pull myself away! L.E. Waters has done a fantastic job of weaving the story lines while remaining true to each lives specific time period. I will definitely be checking back in for more information about the release of Infinite Faith!

  8. I donloaded your firt book from an online promotion. I was hooked 🙂 I had to read the next two immediately. These books are fantastic! Thank you. I am anxiously awaiting the fourth book. In the mean time, I think I’ll read them again 🙂

    • I’m so, so happy you’ve enjoyed all the books, Marilynne. And thank you for being so patient waiting for book 4. It’s taking longer than I thought, but I have to be sure to make it everything I’ve envisioned. Happy re-reading until then 🙂

  9. Lauren, I just finished book 4 of the series! How much I embraced your stories is difficult to put into words. My mom passed on to her next journey in May of this year and I found myself struggling to understand life, the paths we choose, loss, and how to process these thoughts and emotions. Your books came as a answered wish to open my heart to imagine there is more….I can see and feel the depth of hard work you put into this series and want to say, thank you. Your kids can only benefit from your dedication to them and to your gift of writing, what a balancing act eh?
    Your faithful reader, Kat

      • Wow, that is about the closest I’ve come to a panic attack. I was trying to figure how I had missed book four’s publication.

      • LOL! I’m making great headway on book four. Rest assured, I’ll let everyone know when I finish the first draft, the edits and just before it’s about to be released on both my websites and through my mailing list. You won’t be able to miss it! (And I always run a special first day discount for my patient fans!)

  10. What an amazing story you have put together. I ran into the first book, or better yet, the book ran into me. I can not tell you how much these series have meant to me. They came into my life at the right time. Every person that I have recommended the books to have fallen in love with the series as well.

    Thank you for sharing your beautiful soul with your readers.

    • Thank you so much, Dante. I am so glad that my book “ran into you” and that it meant something to you. I will never be able to tell you how much these words touch my life and give me so much purpose. This is all I ever wanted. Thank you!

  11. I am so in love with this series. I finished the third one this morning. I had to make myself read slower so that I wouldn’t have to wait as long for the fourth. I’m so excited to read the last book. I have told anyone that has asked about books that they should read this series. I just might have to re-read the first three until the last one comes out haha. Thank you for writing such an amazing series, I hope when this series is over you begin another series. And pleeeease write faster 😛

    • This has made my day. Thank you so much for telling others about the books and taking time out of your day to let me know how much the series has connected with you, Sierra. It means so much to me (and I know I keep saying that, but it’s the absolute truth). You’ll be happy to know that since my three-year-old has started a bit of preschool I’ve been getting much more writing time in. This book is going to be my longest installment yet (and that’s saying a lot since Infinite Loss makes a great doorstop), but it’s coming along nicely. I’ve decided once I’m finished with the second life of the book I’m going to send them out to my editors to get a jump on things. As for more series or books, I can’t wait to get started on my next project. I’ve been holding off on it until I’ve finished with the Infinite Series, but I think it’s going to be exciting to begin a new tale. Take care!

  12. I don’t remember exactly when I downloaded the first book but when I was done reading it, I promptly bought the next 2. I have been waiting for the 4th. Last month I read them all over again. I am so glad that since I read them the first time, you added the lives charts on your website as what comes through on the kindle was not legible, it was way too small. I was happy I could remind myself of the thread of lives from one book to the next. I am so looking forward to the next book. Your book is one of the few times I was happy to know where were more books in the series and once I spent money on them, they were well worth it. I have bought other series that after the first book that was free I was happy to pay for the second only to find that the next one or 2 in the series were not worth even starting to read. Thank you so very much for your books and I am very much looking forward to the next one.

    • I love hearing that my books can be reread, Cristina, and I’m so pleased that the charts have helped you. I wish there was a way to fix the Kindle viewing issue. I’m so sorry that you’ve had to wait so long for book 4, but I’ve finished two of the three lives and I’m now researching for the last life. Well, actually I haven’t been able to get anything done these past few weeks with all the Holiday mayhem, but I’m looking forward to curling up by the fireplace and reading my stack of nonfiction books after the celebrating is over 🙂 These letters give me so much encouragement and I can never thank you enough for letting me know they have meant something to you. I appreciate all of your support (and patience!) and can’t wait to get the fourth book out to you. Happy Holidays!

  13. I read the first 3 books insanely fast and loved every minute of them. Was sad when I got the the 3rd book and I’m trying to wait patiently for.this last book! I am so excited for it

    • Thank you so much for asking, Chelsey. It’s definitely taking longer than I anticipated. One third of the book is ready for my second editor, the second third of the book has just returned from first edits and I need to make some changes and the last third still needs to be finished. It will be my longest book so far! I truly want to get it out by the end of this year or the start of 2016. I’ll make sure I write a celebration blog post when the first draft is completed with a set release date. I appreciate all my readers’ patience and I’m working hard to make sure it’s worth the wait 🙂

  14. I found your wonderful books quite by accident via a promotion for book 1. When I had finished reading it, I immediately bought the other two and read them. I read, quite honestly, several books each week; and while I generally enjoy most of them, your books resonated so strongly with me I simply had to thank you.

    Each life story was richly told and a gem in itself. But the progression of the soul! That was truly inspiring–like watching a flower slowly open in the sunlight. I love how you start each book with the guide giving just enough information; and end with a summation of the lessons learned. These are not just words that we enjoy and and entertain. We grow and learn along with your characters…we’re pulled into the lessons as much as they are. And, in some ways, are changed and strengthened by the hope that you share through your writing.

    Thank you for sharing your Infinite series with us! I am looking forward to book 4 and recommending the series to my book buddies. Love and Light!

    • Vicki,
      Whenever I read a letter like this my very aura brightens and surges. When someone understands my books like this and says they have had an experience that has changed them is such a profound thing. I only wrote these books for letters like this. It still is so amazing to me and thank you so much for taking the time out to tell me and for brightening my day!

      All the best,
      Lauren

      P.S. “like watching a flower slowly open in the sunlight” -Definitely one of the best things anyone has ever said of my books. Beautiful!

  15. Lauren,
    The comments on this page are almost 2 years old so im hoping there is some progress on the last book? I found the first book on an email list of book deals and free books i subscribed to and was quickly hooked. I finished all three in a weekend and am dying of anticipation for the final installment! These are some really great books!!

    • Hello Brandi,
      Reading all three books in one weekend might be a record! I’ve stopped updating my blog so that I can devote more time to writing/editing. I’m working hard on getting Infinite Faith out to all of you. Thank you so much for the supportive words!
      Best,
      ~Lauren

  16. I’m completely enthralled with the ‘Infinite Series’ and I’m eagerly awaiting the next instalment. I’ve recommended them to all my friends that love a good read and they are just as taken with them as I am.
    Thanks for sharing your gift with the world.

    • Thank you so much for letting me know and for telling your friends about the series, Hoox. I can’t tell you all how much these comments mean to me. I treasure each and every one! ~Lauren

  17. Lauren,
    As an avid reader, I’ve never before been compelled to write to the author, but I must make an exception here! I stumbled upon the first book, looking for a subject that would take me away from my own thoughts during a very difficult time in my life. I had just lost my mother and my sister within one year, and found it virtually impossible to concentrate on anything. Little did I know what a huge blessing I had found in your words! You singlehandedly restored my ability to become totally immersed in the world of Infinite Sacrifice, Loss, and Devotion. I devoured all three novels in record time, and they gave me something back that I had lost, which is HOPE! I can only imagine how difficult it must be for you to develop these characters, weaving and tying them together in such an intricate and delicate manner. You have an outstanding gift, and I had to write to say “thank you” for sharing your gift with me. Your work is truly inspirational and I can hardly wait for Infinite Faith! May your days be many and your troubles be few.
    Blessings,
    Sherri

    • Sherri,
      What can I say to a comment like this? How can I even begin to tell you how much that paragraph has meant to me in so many different ways? I only wrote this series after experiencing my own loss and writing was the thing that kept me going. So to pass that distraction and hope on to someone else is just about the most rewarding thing I could ever gain from writing these books. I’m sorry to hear about losing your mother and sister in such a short time. I hope you can get through this difficult time with their help. I also believe that when we have moments that try us, the universe sends us something to get through. Look for all the signs that they are still with you, no matter how small they might be. I’m so glad my books found you and I can’t thank you enough for your incredibly amazing note to me. I will remember it always 🙂

      “May God give you…
      For every storm, a rainbow,
      For every tear, a smile,
      For every care, a promise,
      And a blessing in each trial.
      For every problem life sends,
      A faithful friend to share,
      For every sigh, a sweet song,
      And an answer for each prayer.”
      ~Lauren

  18. im gonna bet that you did not expect this but im an 18 yo male that has been looking forward to this book for over a year i really want to read about his modern life with Finn and Ellie if this is the one where it happens my favorite life by far is the native American one it was so well written that i laughed cried and felt the rage that he felt. my next favorite was defiantly the civil war one for the same reason and the Edgar Allan Poe one would have if it was not sooooo long. when is it coming out i read over 1 1/2 years ago it was to be out fall 2014 it is 2016 and i have not seen it yet!!?!?!? anyways please tell me im dieing inside to know what is going on in that series

    • Hi Zechariah! What a great name 🙂 It makes me so happy that you’ve enjoyed the series. I’ve read the Native American and Spanish Armada lives to my 9 yr old son and he loves them. We will read the Viking life next. I love hearing which lives you enjoyed the most. As soon as the whole series is out I can’t wait to put up a poll on my website asking readers which was their favorite life. It seems that different lives resonate with different people. I’m making good progress on Infinite Faith. It’s a really three long books so it’s taking me more time than I thought. Plus I want to make it just the way it should be before publishing. I’m working hard to get it out since I know my best fans are patiently waiting all these years for it. I will give a release date when I get a little closer to publication. Thanks so much for letting me know how much you like the series! ~Lauren

  19. I have just completed reading Infinite Loss. I felt that it was easily the best of the series. The section on Edgar Allen Poe was quite moving and informative. I had no idea how much this man suffered in his short life.

    In general, I am very pleased with the thematic structure of the series. I am attracted to the idea of reincarnation based on the premise that each life has a lesson to learn. Your series is the first one that I have seen that links the various lives of one soul through different historical periods and locations. It is also quite interesting how the soul, Maya, changes genders from one life to the next. It would help in the summing up with Zacharias if the theme of gender was addressed. I also thought that souls prefer one gender over another.

    I like the idea of using the lives of the famous and infamous as your tablet to illustrate the difficulties that a life can have. I am curious whether the earlier incarnations in your first book were indeed historical figures or not.

    Finally, the summing up that is done between Maya and Zacharias is what I really look forward to. It really is the perfect epilogue. Sort of like desert after a good meal.

    I am really looking forward to the next tome, Infinite Faith. I assume that Maya will be a cleric or something like that. No doubt, it will be the crowning glory of the
    series. Hopefully, the final summing up will tie all the pieces together and Maya will have no need to incarnate again. If so, please give us poor readers some hint of paradise.

    I can hardly wait for Infinite Faith.

    • Hi Rick,

      Thank you so much for taking to time to let me know how much you’ve enjoyed the series. I love hearing which story resonates with my fans (I’m going to make a poll at the end of the series for everyone to vote on the favorite life!) I can’t wait for that. I’m so happy that you connected with so many important aspects of the books. That is my ultimate writing goal. Changing genders is very important for soul evolution and, if I haven’t discussed it enough before, I will try to revisit it again. None of the earlier incarnations were famous. The first historical life was Lucrezia’s. Zacharia’s summations are either loved or hated. I’m so glad that you appreciated them. I feel they are essential to the series and I try to keep them brief for those that enjoy the past lives more. As far as any hints, I can tell you that Maya will not reach paradise in Infinite Faith, but that is because I realized that a fifth book and final book is needed. Yet I can’t reveal what may happen in the last one, I will tell you the name, Infinite Salvation 🙂 I will be posting very soon to explain all of this and to give a release date for Infinite Faith so sit tight!

      • Reading that you plan to write a fifth book in your wonderful series fills me with so much anticipation. It feels strange to experience both anticipation and a deep sense of patience, too. Now that I know there will be an “Infinite Salvation”, I can rest in the knowledge that the fourth will be here when the time is right.

        Thanks, with “Infinite Patience”. 🙂

  20. In your fourth book, Infinite Faith, will you be using historical persons like Edgar Allan Poe to illustrate the soul journey of Maya ?

    • Hello Rick,

      I don’t know how I missed this comment and I apologize for delay. Although there will be historical people in both of the lives visited in the fourth book, neither of the lives will be based on a historical person. You’ll be able to find out more on May 1st 🙂

      ~Lauren

  21. Extremely eagerly waiting! I have read non stop since like 10. I am now 36 and these are The Best Books I have read. I LOVE them and cannot wait for the next one!

    Excited,
    Elizabeth 💛

  22. Thank you very much for replying to my comment. I am looking forward to the Infinite Faith and I am pleased that all threads will be tied up in Infinite Salvation. I must compliment you on your stylistics and your attention to historical detail.

  23. Will infinite faith be released in print form as well? My husband is a huge fan of the series but I can only send him print books.

      • Infinite Faith

        I have just finished reading Infinite Faith which is the fourth book of a five book series covering the adventures of a spirit who has incarnated twelve times previously to her latest life in war ravaged Nazi Germany in the late 1930s. Our protagonist began her first life as a male high priest in ancient Egypt and along the way was Lucrezia Borgia, Major Andre and Edgar Allen Poe. In between and subsequent lives our hero was an ordinary person caught up in rather extraordinary times and conditions.

        Infinite Faith is the most difficult book to read of the entire series so far. Our heroine, Annalie, is consigned to a private mental hospital near Dresden, Germany in the late 1930s by her family owing to her delusions that she was 12 different people previously. One can easily understand that a person living in Nazi Germany in the late 1930s who was not shy to approach total strangers in the street whom she recognized from a previous existence would arouse a great deal of attention. Most of it negative.

        It seems that there was some sort of glitch when Annalie’s eternal spirit merged with her new body as Annalie and that instead of forgetting her previous existences they became very real. This was truly a cardinal mistake that eventually led to tragedy.

        The setting of this latest book in the Infinite series takes place as mentioned in a mental hospital. The description of hospital life was very accurate and if one has ever visited a mental hospital to see a patient or to admit one then all the baleful memories come cascading down on you like a flood. Nevertheless, I soldiered on.

        Annalie was subjected to the expected indignities by Nurse Bathilda who makes Nurse Ratchet from “One Flew Over the Cuckoos Nest” look like Mary Poppins. Luckily, Annalie is partially rescued by the young and handsome Dr. Evert who shared a previous life with Annalie.

        The most exciting part of the novel was the harrowing escape by Annalie and her friends to flee the confines of the mental home with the Nazi SS fast on their heels with their diabolical intent to have them gassed in the nearby execution chamber. The author manages to create a great deal of tension and employed a few deft tricks to get the girls out of harm’s way.

        The historical character of Georg Elser, who indeed attempted to kill Hitler, is woven into the novel as the love interest of Annalie and of course her soul mate over the centuries of her spiritual existence. The author is to be commended for bringing to the reader’s attention the feats of this unsung hero.

        Annalie and her friends, with great help from Georg’s mysterious English friend Lee, make it to England. Once in England the action really slows down and frankly speaking the novel begins to drag. The one exception to that critique is the scene where Annalie, her sister and Lee visit the ancient abbey near Cheapside in London and Annalie amazes everyone about her intimate knowledge of the place from her former life.

        I really expected that once Annalie and her twin sister Katherine were in England that both girls would find happiness and for once enjoy a full life. This was not to be. No surprise.

        The tragic end that Annalie and Katherine suffer in England in the dying days of WWII reminds us that Annalie did not have sufficient faith to soldier on and that salvation was out of reach for her. Thus, LOL, the pressing need for the next and final volume of the series, Infinite Salvation.

        There are some inconsistencies in the novel that the author ought to correct in the next edition. Firstly, the mental hospital is described as private. Why then do the Nazis complain that public money is being expended on the mentally unfit ? This could be cured by explaining that some private mental hospitals had government subsidies for indigent patients. Secondly, it is rather doubtful that the British authorities would allow in anyone from France into the UK during WWII without sufficient documents. Since it was broadly hinted that Lee was a British spy it then follows that he could have easily obtained entry documents for them. In that case, there would have have been no need to hide their identity during WWII. These points are certainly not central to the book’s core message but they somewhat fray the historical credibility of the saga.

        The next point concerns some of the minor characters in this novel such as Nurse Frieda who is quite nice and helpful. We learn that she is none other than George Washington three lives previous. There is no figure in American history more august and iconic than General Washington. Is the author trying to tell us that even the high and the mighty are really no more spiritually advanced than anyone else ? Does this mean that in their next lives President Obama could be the busboy at Denny’s and Donald Trump the night janitor at the NYC Public Library ? It is indeed a comforting thought to us lesser mortals but is it realistic ? Is the author trying to tell us something ? Annalie’s first life seems to have been the one with the greatest prestige and carnal delights and her latest life the least prestigious and hardly no carnal pleasures. I am now concerned what awaits me in my next incarnation. LOL !

        Our protagonist has lived now 13 lives she has come across in each life at least 10 other characters and at least one animal. Add all these numbers up and you are talking about over 140 different characters ! That is a lot of people to remember. That is more people than there are Kardashians ! This reader is very grateful for the charts. I am also glad that the author reminds the reader of some of the spiritual connections from time to time.

        What is also curious is that nearly all the lives that our protagonist has experienced have ended tragically and quite quickly or both. No mention is made of the protagonists existence between lives. There was a slight mention that Annalie had chosen the latest life which logically assumes a life between lives.

        I realize that there is not much drama from describing a June Clever type of life or any real life lessons to be learned from a life of ease and happiness. However, one would expect that our heroine would
        have had at least one happy and fulfilled life over her existence, if for nothing else, a breathing space. How many tragic lives can a spirit take before freaking out ?

        I was also rather surprised by how easily our heroine dealt with changing gender life to life. The first lives she was male, then female, male and in the last two lives female. I have a hard time getting my arms around that concept. I would think that a soul over time would come to favor one gender or the other.

        I have really enjoyed the Infinite series so far. I look forward to the final book in the series Infinite Salvation. I do hope that our heroine can overcome all challenges thrown at her and emerge victorious to the point that she obtains eternal salvation.

        Finally, I very much enjoy the summing up by the spirit guide, Zachariah. I particularly was delighted to learn of his connection to our heroine and his latest revelation about himself.

        I have the feeling that the author enjoys creating these characters and stories more than we do reading them. I envy her very much.

    • I spoke with someone before whose husband was in prison, but I can’t seem to find the email address. I remember that she could only send him print copies and wondered if that is you?

      • Infinite Faith

        I have just finished reading Infinite Faith which is the fourth book of a five book series covering the adventures of a spirit who has incarnated twelve times previously to her latest life in war ravaged Nazi Germany in the late 1930s. Our protagonist began her first life as a male high priest in ancient Egypt and along the way was Lucrezia Borgia, Major Andre and Edgar Allen Poe. In between and subsequent lives our hero was an ordinary person caught up in rather extraordinary times and conditions.

        Infinite Faith is the most difficult book to read of the entire series so far. Our heroine, Annalie, is consigned to a private mental hospital near Dresden, Germany in the late 1930s by her family owing to her delusions that she was 12 different people previously. One can easily understand that a person living in Nazi Germany in the late 1930s who was not shy to approach total strangers in the street whom she recognized from a previous existence would arouse a great deal of attention. Most of it negative.

        It seems that there was some sort of glitch when Annalie’s eternal spirit merged with her new body as Annalie and that instead of forgetting her previous existences they became very real. This was truly a cardinal mistake that eventually led to tragedy.

        The setting of this latest book in the Infinite series takes place as mentioned in a mental hospital. The description of hospital life was very accurate and if one has ever visited a mental hospital to see a patient or to admit one then all the baleful memories come cascading down on you like a flood. Nevertheless, I soldiered on.

        Annalie was subjected to the expected indignities by Nurse Bathilda who makes Nurse Ratchet from “One Flew Over the Cuckoos Nest” look like Mary Poppins. Luckily, Annalie is partially rescued by the young and handsome Dr. Evert who shared a previous life with Annalie.

        The most exciting part of the novel was the harrowing escape by Annalie and her friends to flee the confines of the mental home with the Nazi SS fast on their heels with their diabolical intent to have them gassed in the nearby execution chamber. The author manages to create a great deal of tension and employed a few deft tricks to get the girls out of harm’s way.

        The historical character of Georg Elser, who indeed attempted to kill Hitler, is woven into the novel as the love interest of Annalie and of course her soul mate over the centuries of her spiritual existence. The author is to be commended for bringing to the reader’s attention the feats of this unsung hero.

        Annalie and her friends, with great help from Georg’s mysterious English friend Lee, make it to England. Once in England the action really slows down and frankly speaking the novel begins to drag. The one exception to that critique is the scene where Annalie, her sister and Lee visit the ancient abbey near Cheapside in London and Annalie amazes everyone about her intimate knowledge of the place from her former life.

        I really expected that once Annalie and her twin sister Katherine were in England that both girls would find happiness and for once enjoy a full life. This was not to be. No surprise.

        The tragic end that Annalie and Katherine suffer in England in the dying days of WWII reminds us that Annalie did not have sufficient faith to soldier on and that salvation was out of reach for her. Thus, LOL, the pressing need for the next and final volume of the series, Infinite Salvation.

        There are some inconsistencies in the novel that the author ought to correct in the next edition. Firstly, the mental hospital is described as private. Why then do the Nazis complain that public money is being expended on the mentally unfit ? This could be cured by explaining that some private mental hospitals had government subsidies for indigent patients. Secondly, it is rather doubtful that the British authorities would allow in anyone from France into the UK during WWII without sufficient documents. Since it was broadly hinted that Lee was a British spy it then follows that he could have easily obtained entry documents for them. In that case, there would have have been no need to hide their identity during WWII. These points are certainly not central to the book’s core message but they somewhat fray the historical credibility of the saga.

        The next point concerns some of the minor characters in this novel such as Nurse Frieda who is quite nice and helpful. We learn that she is none other than George Washington three lives previous. There is no figure in American history more august and iconic than General Washington. Is the author trying to tell us that even the high and the mighty are really no more spiritually advanced than anyone else ? Does this mean that in their next lives President Obama could be the busboy at Denny’s and Donald Trump the night janitor at the NYC Public Library ? It is indeed a comforting thought to us lesser mortals but is it realistic ? Is the author trying to tell us something ? Annalie’s first life seems to have been the one with the greatest prestige and carnal delights and her latest life the least prestigious and hardly no carnal pleasures. I am now concerned what awaits me in my next incarnation. LOL !

        Our protagonist has lived now 13 lives she has come across in each life at least 10 other characters and at least one animal. Add all these numbers up and you are talking about over 140 different characters ! That is a lot of people to remember. That is more people than there are Kardashians ! This reader is very grateful for the charts. I am also glad that the author reminds the reader of some of the spiritual connections from time to time.

        What is also curious is that nearly all the lives that our protagonist has experienced have ended tragically and quite quickly or both. No mention is made of the protagonists existence between lives. There was a slight mention that Annalie had chosen the latest life which logically assumes a life between lives.

        I realize that there is not much drama from describing a June Clever type of life or any real life lessons to be learned from a life of ease and happiness. However, one would expect that our heroine would
        have had at least one happy and fulfilled life over her existence, if for nothing else, a breathing space. How many tragic lives can a spirit take before freaking out ?

        I was also rather surprised by how easily our heroine dealt with changing gender life to life. The first lives she was male, then female, male and in the last two lives female. I have a hard time getting my arms around that concept. I would think that a soul over time would come to favor one gender or the other.

        I have really enjoyed the Infinite series so far. I look forward to the final book in the series Infinite Salvation. I do hope that our heroine can overcome all challenges thrown at her and emerge victorious to the point that she obtains eternal salvation.

  24. I really enjoyed the first 3 books! I happened on the first one by accident it was featured on my Kindle. I quickly fell in love an an purchased the next 2 in the series an am going to look for book 4 I came to your website to see when it would be released an am so happy it is out. I have only put my Kindle down to work an have read nonstop for over a week. I can only say Thank You for writing such an engrossing heart warming story, I really enjoyed what I have read so far an am eager to get to book 4. Your very talented an again Thank you for the hours of reading enjoyment.

    • Bree, this made me so happy! Thank you so much for taking the time to make my day. I’m so glad you’ve liked the first three books and I hope you enjoy Infinite Faith just as much! ~Lauren

  25. Thank you so much for this your work! These stories touched me right away on a deep level. It is amazing how you tell them with such ease and one is right there in the setting with the characters. Reading them made me tap into collective consciousness and understand so much more about subconscious layers of patterns due to cultural and epochal impregnation of the soul, making me see so much more. As a practitioner who offers past life regressions, I was intrigued by the plots and soul journey unfolding. I recommend these books to anyone I imganine to be open to the ideas. I don’t come across material that includes manyfold layers (psychological, philosophical and storyline plus history) in such good intertwinement often, so this is a treat! Am in book 3 right now and am already sad the series ends at book 4. Well, can always reread. Thank you again! Blessings your way…

    • What an amazing compliment, that a past life regression practitioner enjoyed these books! Wow, I’m thrilled beyond words since bringing someone through the complete experience was my ultimate goal. I longed for such an experience myself, so I decided to attempt to write it, to connect all the dots and try to explain the journey I feel deep down, in an aged soul. For you, of all people, to suggest my series to others is one of the best compliments I could ever receive. Thank you so much for telling me.

      Many blessings in return,
      Lauren

  26. Just finished Infinite Fairh. Wonderful book. I’m always alittle depressed at the ending of these books because I feel so connected to the people in the books. So excited about Infinite Salvation coming out but also saddened that it will be the last. I recommend this series to anyone who listens. I take my kindle with me wherever I go in order to read a few pages while waiting for an appointment or picking up grandkids from school and even take it to bed with me. Fanrtastic Series.

    • Hello Lottie! I don’t know how I missed this comment. I usually get notified when someone comments but I see many comments here and there have slipped through somehow so I must read through everything to be sure I haven’t forgotten anyone! Thanks so much for letting me know you’ve enjoyed them. My own mother hates reading the ending of each life because it makes her sad, but I try to tell her to just think of it as the beginning of the next life. I will admit that I’ve cried while writing each one myself though. It’s very hard for me to write the last of the series but I think it’s fitting to end with this book, but I won’t keep myself from considering writing more reincarnation series in the future. There’s so much to explore! Although there are a few historical fiction books that have been begging to be born first. It will be a nice break to write some single, less complicated novels for a change. It is still so amazing to me that people have embraced this series so warmly. I have terrific readers!
