The Fool's Journey by Kristina Jackson & Kay Darling

This is the story of Moira. When the books starts she is at a bad place in her life and a chance meeting with a Tarot reader takes her on a journey of self discovery that changes everything she ever knew about herself. This is the story of a few years in her life, and the twists and turns that occur therein, plus a couple of paranormal mysteries - can Moira solve them.

This was a wonderful story. Moira's journey was not always an easy one but ultimately it was fulfilling. I enjoyed the part the Tarot cards played in shaping Moira's life. Because of the cards advice it was interesting to see her character change from a woman who would do anything to get to the top to someone who embraces spirituality and all it entails. The mystery of Jimmy and Annie added an extra dimension. The story was filled with quite raw emotion and I had tears in my eyes for a large part of the story. If I have any critism it would be for the ending. There was no real explanation as to how Moira got to the bottom of the mystery of Annie's parents. It just sort of solved itself and then the story ended - somewhat suddenly. This was just a minor quibble though and did not detract from my enjoyment of the story in any way. I know this is Kristina's first full length story and if this is the standard set, may there be many more. I totally recommend this one.
