From Shakespeare to President Kennedy, many have remarked that our past is our prologue. Combining historical and fictional events, the novel takes the reader from 1942 New York City with Nikola Tesla to 1945 and the Battle of Berlin. There are also scenes in London, Tel Aviv, and Berlin in the 1990s and in 2000. Kessler’s story explores how our past thoughts and actions impact our present and future lives.
What if our perception of reality is not what it really is? Does our historical DNA cell memory impact that reality? Psychiatrist Carl Jung used the term “collective unconscious” that defined our inherited traits, intuitions, and wisdom from generations past. Could there actually be memories trapped in our DNA that could intrude into our present lives?
“Carl Jung spoke about genetic cell memory or the collective unconscious. Could some of our memories be written into our DNA? And can they cause or create unexplained phenomena? That is certainly possible,” Kessler comments.
“A thrilling and intriguing novel, A Face in the Night, immersed me in a world of Germany at the turn of the millennia, and back to New York City in the late 30s. Always guessing at what is real and what is imagined, and at times slipping into my own dreams – A Face in the Night is truly a gripping tale that does not let up. Mr. Kessler is a brilliant writer who had me turning the page wanting more of this story. I would definitely recommend and look forward to more from this new writer.”
“Kessler is a great storyteller. The book has several plots and it took me to the edge of my seat, wondering: ‘What is reality?’”
“Just like it said on the website, it truly is a masterpiece presented by the author. I loved the story; it was written with a lot of thought. Props to Ray Kessler for producing such a great book.”
