Book Review: Stains on the Soul by Jamie White
It’s her last summer before going away to college and Fiona finds herself facing more than she bargained for: A boyfriend she doesn’t want who has a strange hold over her, a friend pushing her to expand her boundaries, and a new guy named Ted whose presence is more than a distraction.
If that isn’t enough, Fiona is being haunted with horrifying nightmares of burning at the stake—nightmares so real, she feels as though she’s losing her mid.
Are they only dreams, or are they trying to warn her about this new guy she can’t help but want?

Fiona is haunted by dreams of the past. Dreams of other places and other times. She sees a woman burning at the stake and another trying to flee from a constrictive lifestyle. At first she tries to push the dreams aside, but the more intense they become, even seeping into her waking hours, the more she knows someone or something is trying to tell her something. Maybe even warn her about one of the men in her life. If someone hurt her in the past, is it possible history is about to repeat itself?
