MEGAN KIMSEY born and raised in a small Colorado town on the edge of the La Plata Mountains grows up haunted by images Straddling cryptic glimpses of events that foretell her own future and events remembered from a past in the highlands of Ecuador and Peru than 400 years before she was born she must challenge her Catholic upbringing and the stigma of a mental breakdown following a childhood tragedy before she can strike out on a. Past lives premonitions are we soul searching or searching for a soul The uest for spiritual understanding isn’t straight forward or bound by linear time as Ginger Bensman expertly illustrates in this tale of one woman’s journey to find answers in the past present and future To Swim Beneath the Earth is complex literary with rich characterisations and dense beautiful writing that often made me lower my kindle to pause and appreciate the phrasing The central character Megan is very very human in the sense she’s not always likeable often unreliable but we understand why she acts and responds to the world around her beneath her and beyond her Although that probably sounds a little cryptic this book isn’t easily summarised in a few sentences There’s fine crafting with regard to the plot and character development making for a riveting read even when there’s not much action happeningLet me digress slightly here on the subject of action I have great respect for a book that isn’t afraid to take its time to tell a story In this fast paced world storytelling culture has taken a trend towards speed We’re told that if we don’t write an excitement machine with a blistering plot electric tension and getaway car pacing readers will get bored and put down the book sometimes in ways than oneI’m not suggesting I want to read slabs like War Peace which were written to keep readers amused through a long Russian winter with NOTHING ELSE TO DO but I feel the need for speed has reduced the number of stories that are being written with the intent to take you into a deep thoughtful reflective state This is that kind of book and I’m certain the title is no accidentDon’t let me put you off if your preference is a literary adrenaline hit This isn’t a slow book either nor is it bogged down by indulgent overwriting Every paragraph has purpose When I think back over the movements of the story as a standard length novel a lot of stuff happens arguably several lifetimes worth of eventsIf you want a recommendation I’d say grab your spiritual swimsuit put yourself into ‘do not disturb’ mode and get lost In the book I mean It’s a journey worth taking

To Swim Beneath the EarthS and piece together the riddles in her dreams Megan’s journey leads her to South America and an expedition among the remnants of the Inca Empire and finally to a wind swept outcropping high atop Cotopaxi Mountain in search of the frozen child she sees in her dreams Accompanied by a team of archeologists and an indigenous woman of wisdom who becomes her mentor and guide Megan must confront her ghosts and claim her own redemptio. Poetic Aching Thought provoking Frustrating Memorable and ultimately well worth the readI love the title of this book I wish I had thought of it I also love the idea and the exploration of the possibility of reincarnation I believe in reincarnation Or at least for me it seems as plausible as any one of a number of beliefs espoused by brighter people than meI firmly believed in the truth and the reality of Ginger Bensman's character Megan Kimsey She lived and breathed loved and suffered throughout the entirety of this novel I loved that than my poor words can express probably because Megan loved so hard throughout most of this novel She was profligate in her feelings for her father; for her middle school teacher and his crush worthy wife Dodie; and of course for little Bella I could be angry about Bella but she broke my heart instead Lovely work fantastic characterization not only of those characters but of many others And yet as complex and true as I found some characters and some thoughts about the afterlife others left me than a little frustratedAs a reader I was impressed with the reality of Megan's past life experience I believed it because it was so well imagined written with heart breaking honesty and with poetic sensibility Bravo And yet although I was fully invested in the validity of Megan's past life experience I kept wondering what was the point of it all Why did all these people come together What was the karmic significance for any character other than Megan There didn't seem to be any and so I was left frustrated Even the romance seemed a bit one sided Still I truly enjoyed this book and didn't want it to end it was just that goodThis story has stayed with me long after I read the last word I will be looking for of Ginger Bensman's work and devouring it uickly when I do
