AUCIn his new book “La Decouverte: Discovery” (published by Trafford Publishing), Rex Bradley Smith approaches spiritual and metaphysical concepts in the story of a man who takes an introspective look at life, considering the carnal and spiritual nature of humanity.

Marcel arrives in London from New Zealand, ready to start a new job and a new life away from the painful losses that he has experienced. The pieces all seem to be in place for him to begin to achieve his goals and settle into a happy life.

But when Marcel’s friend, Paul, is injured in a freak accident, Marcel’s road to happiness becomes a bit more difficult. When he begins to reconsider the meaning of his life, readers are taken into a metaphysical exploration of humanity’s essential qualities – a reflection of Smith’s beliefs.

Marcel and his friends contemplate their dreams, mysterious deaths and spiritual enlightenment, taking readers on a spiritual journey that Smith hints may end in a surprise, inspirational revelation.

“‘La Decouverte’ describes the stresses of human experience but also includes a fantasy of previous lives and a vision of the future,” explains Smith, an avid practitioner of meditation and a student of life’s metaphysical mysteries. He hopes his views on what he calls “pre-birth” and “post-death” help readers consider the influence of suffering on the human condition.

When asked what he wanted readers to take away from “La Decouverte,” Smith says, “…hope and some understanding in the value of a life.”
