In his middle age, Mike wonders if life is just too long for permanent relationships. He divorced when his children were four and two respectively. Now teens, they seem adjusted, but he questions what is happening in his love life. He sees Carole, much younger than he is, but she wants more than he can give. Mike's thoughts wander back to Dierry, his "dream girl" from his salad days when he believed that there was more to life than his experiences have since found.

A weary Mike recalls the memory of an elderly woman who insisted he had an old soul filled with past lives. That elderly woman “escorts” Mike on a journey along an astral plane into the past lives he lived and the women he loved crossing the ocean to Ancient Gaul and later existence. However, these flawed relationships seem to reverberate the problems of present day Mike.

This is a great look at human relationships including harmony within oneself via superb vignettes that are part of a powerful story line that takes the reader on a journey of the mind. Robert Ross allows the audience to believe what we want as he never sets in concrete whether the astral trip is a genuine time travel trek or whether Mike even lived those previous lives. Regardless of which theory the reader accepts, fans will agree that JOURNEY WITHIN: A TALE OF ASTRAL TRAVELS is a triumphant one sitting reading experience along the cerebral yet entertaining plane.
