Overview

this is a thought provoking novel that fascinates as it entertains.
psycho therapist, peter mahoney is forced to re-examine his training, beliefs and eventually his very existence when he meets, john, a seemingly very ordinary, average, elderly client suffering from panic attacks. peter suspects agoraphobia but under regression hypnotherapy john's symptoms don't seem to add up and peter changes his diagnosis to possible multiple personality disorder.
but a problem occurs when the 'switches', or personalities, appear to be coming from different countries and different times: the most surprising of which is 'the tourist from the light', who claims to have lived on earth at the beginning of our time!
is this some gigantic hoax or is he dealing with a religious nut serving his own agenda?
parallel to this, peter is having his own personal problems with his soon to be divorced wife, jill, whom he still loves. When she suffers a devastating accident for which peter blames himself the two events, john's puzzling case and jill's accident become inexorably linked.
what transpires throws peter into a vortex of emotions, guilt and self doubt that eventually exposes him to a shattering paranormal epiphany and an alternative philosophy that could change mankind's thinking forever.
has the client come to be healed or to heal the therapist?
this is one man's journey of discovery.

    I began reading Bryon Williams' The Tourist from the Light with

    I began reading Bryon Williams' The Tourist from the Light with the intention of reading a chapter or two before I slept. Before I knew it, it was 3am and I had devoured the entire story! Suffice it to say that I had to forgo the whole sleep idea as this book resonated with me in way that's difficult to verbalise. I found myself laughing, crying, smiling, sighing, shaking my head in wonder and sometimes gently trembling with a profound sense of truth. 

    The Tourist from the Light is a remarkable tale of Peter, a young atheist psychotherapist forced into re-examining his limited professional, personal and social beliefs after several sessions with a seemingly ordinary, middle-aged client, John who not only opens Peter's mind to the possibilities of reincarnation and a continued spiritual connection with the Soul but also connects with Peter in a surprisingly personal way which will forever change his perception of the world in which he lives.

    This story will take you on an entertaining and enlightening journey that truly has the potential to change the way you view life, death and everything in between. Thank you to the author Bryon Williams for opening my heart and mind and perhaps triggering some distant memories of my own "soul connections".
