Wear Bright Colours for Me


Well worth 5 stars!!!

I loved the story of Amy and Luke that spanned many lifetimes. The author brought the characters to life as their escapades ran throughout the ages, from Roman days to the present time. It was a very vivid story for me interwoven with sub plots and intrigue. I felt I was actually there as if a traveller in time, the unseen observer.

The story takes the reader from life time-to-life time where the characters appear in various incarnations. The author has a highly developed style of penmanship that draws the reader in and doesn’t let go. I particularly enjoyed Emma and Phillip’s story during the Elizabethan age as it’s a time that fascinates me. It’s obvious that the author has researched the factual side of this book very well as it’s all down to the detail! The descriptions are so colourful and bring the story to life.

I don’t know how Ms. Hartley does it but her books get better and better. I really feel I could see this one on the big screen!
If you’re interested in all things spiritual including, karma and reincarnation, then this is the book for you!

Highly recommended!!


Birth, death and rebirth…a continual cycle. Through countless centuries a curse follows potential soulmates Amy and Luke.

From their life as African slaves in 65 BC to professionals in contemporary London, they are destined to be forced apart.

Many lives, many tragedies… and a relentless enemy whose karma is bound up with theirs.

This is a brilliantly woven story of the possibilities of reincarnation and the affect of karma on individuals as they try to battle through the traumas of each rebirth.

“A unique story which will make you think seriously about reincarnation”.

Blog Tour: Interview with novelist, Thea Hartley

Where did you get the idea for your book from?

My daughter had a dream about my late husband, where he gave her the message ‘Wear bright colours for me’ that became the title. I was also inspired by my grandsons and his friend Isla, who have been extremely close since nursery school. They are inseparable. They made me think that they could have met in a previous life…I had read a great deal about reincarnation and was interested in the subject. I wanted to write something about it. 

Are the characters based on anyone you know?

Well…they weren’t intentionally ( except Alex and Isla as the two children, but not older), However, some of the characters reminded me of some people, although I’m not saying who!

What are your thoughts on reincarnation?

After all the research, I am very open minded. There could possibly be something in it.

What are your thoughts on Karma?

I don’t think it’s the strict karma of some beliefs, but I do believe that some things are destined and you get good or bad things happen to you relating to past deeds.

Do you think there’s a lesson somewhere in your book?


Yes, I actually think it’s a very moral book. The message seems to be that certain behaviours and values bring rewards, whilst others bring punishment…in some form or another.

Which time period did you prefer?

I liked them all. I really enjoyed researching each and every one. If I had to choose, it would be the gypsies in Victorian times.

Have you any plans for further books on the topic of reincarnation?

I have some ideas, but it depends on the success of the first book. I would like next time to have one person who remembers their previous life or lives and tries to solve mysteries from them.

What is your writing day like?

Very disorganised. I get up and deal with correspondence first. From then on its anyone’s guess. If I have time I will write for an hour or two, then do chores etc. If not, the writing will take place later in the day…sometimes in the middle of the night. Other times if I am deeply into a book, I might write for most of the day.

What are you writing at the moment?

I have almost finished editing “Gone and Forgotten” a crime thriller. I will then start on the third book in the ‘French Letter’ series…”Fall of the French Letter King”.
