The idea that man has a soul print to complete before he leaves this mortal coil takes the book into a personal morality for us all

In his new book, “Soul Prints” (published by iUniverse), Norman Hines pens a poetic tale of grief, enlightenment and an underlying hope for peace.

“It is more than a love story between star crossed lovers, but goes far beyond the main lives of its main characters in its striving for a unique means of establishing world peace,” Hines explains. “The idea that man has a soul print to complete before he leaves this mortal coil takes the book into a personal morality for us all.”

Set within the backdrop of a mystical battle between good and evil, the lives of two young people unknowingly struggle to complete their soul prints on earth. The local high school has taken on the onerous task of mounting the musical “Man of La Mancha.”

Infiltrating the lives of the members of the production is a force that threatens to exert a mind boggling influence on the cast. Nuri Lemuel, a girl with a sweet soprano voice, is chosen to play Aldonza, the tragic lead of the play, and has always longed to touch the heart of her unavailable father.

Nathaniel is a fellow student with whom she is ill-fated for involvement. Unknown to her, he is a lost soul from the world beyond – so much of his life and memory is an unsolved mystery. Their efforts to fulfill the demanding reason for existence take them into a fearful world of the unknown.
