I bought this book thinking it would be cheesy romance that consumes most of today's stories. I was pleasently surprised to find out that it goes much deeper than that. This is not a love which will pass with the summer's warmth, it has survived generations of troubled society and the general publics ignorance. It looks at your soul and makes you face facts about where you have been and how it has changed you. It is quite comforting to know that this author realizes that crazy feelings or nudges can actually mean something if you are willing to listen to them.

I want people to read this and apply the underlining message to their lives.

This was an amazing book. There are long drawn out moments where nothing really connects with the other stories embedded in the book, but never fear...there are connections. You just have to get to the end. I loved this book. I cried happy tears at the end. Everything just fit together and I got chills up and down my spine when everything fianlly merged. If you read this book and get bored with the long drawn out areas, please, read on. You won't regret it. Oh, there are many many typos in this books, but after I got past all that, I was enthralled. This is a book I would read over and over again. I am a closet romantic and this just made my heart soar!

I would recommend this book. It's a first book for the author. Seems that he wrote it based on some real events of his life, and based on interesting philosophical ideas, specifically ancient belief in "reincarnation" which is so popular in India.
The story lines are intersting and the book as a whole makes you stop for a moment and think about certain things in life that we don't usually pay much attention to.
The writing style needs some polishing and improvements, but it's probably due to fact that the author has no special education or training as a writer. If you can forget about writing style and focus on writing itself, books is a great read. Highly recommend!

We read this book when it first came out, and fell in love with it. K S Michaels writes with a passion that can only be found in those who truly know how to love. He has an obvious passion for writing, and placing you into the very soul of the story. Our club rates this book with five stars, and fifty more. Each of our club members experienced the same intriguing draw from the very start from the first page. He writes from the soul with a magic that anyone with a heartbeat can understand. If this truly were to become a movie, we would be there with bells on. However, I would have a hard time believing a movie could do it any justice.

I would give a synopsis, but why bother...it's been done.

BTW We suggest not buying the paperback used. The book with 440 pages and a bio of the author is the only authentic publicaton.

We were also pleasantly surprised to find the hardback cover to be very different from the paperback. The art and quality of the hardback is fantastic.

Also...AMAZON WAS GREAT IN DELIVERING THE BOOK ON TIME AS PROMISED!!!

I speek for twelve when I recommend this book with the highest marks. We will be following up with whatever K S Michaels has in store for us next.

This would be my first review ever, so bare with me. I was so compelled to tell all my friends about this wonderful book that I just had to scream when all my friends were not home when I called. So here I am typing my heart out about how in love I am with this story a friend of mine loaned me. I just finished the book and my eyes are still streaming with tears. Good tears. I was so happy for Mike finding his true love. I really loved finding the connections between souls. This is such a fantastic story. The kind of story that really should be made into one of those block busters. I also loved the names of the characters. If you are a romance junkie like me...this is the book for you. Just get it. I'ts kind of long but every page is magical with Mike and Mirand triumphant at the end. I wont give a way the ending but it was a mystical surprise. I love this book.

This is an unbelievable love story. This book was a fateful, generous gift from a girl who is, now, my girlfriend. Her message was simple: `This story is my dream for you and me.' Obviously, I had to read it asap. And WOW!!! Nothing could have been more flattering. After reading this book I felt compelled to reassess my love life. This truly is a wonderful love story of phenomenal dimensions spanning an eternity of destiny. The attention to detail behind the seriously complex plot was amazing and yet easy to follow.

The intensely passionate love and close friendship between characters is extremely moving.

This is definitely not some cheesy romance novel.

Mike, with his strength of character, independence, resourcefulness, moves adeptly through three timelines and is driven by the passion for his soul mate, Miranda. We travel with both of them, and with sub-protagonists, from the western countryside of the 1800's to the contemporary of today with all inclusive challenges of both strife and sacrifice, as they attempt to impact history and continue on together with a love that transcends the boundaries of time.

Unbeknown to Mike, Miranda possesses the real magic behind the mystery of time. Her patience and endurance pays off ten-fold when the climactic reunion culminates via the driving love that only soul mates could begin to understand. The remarkable characters of this romantic soul searching story are bound to capture your heart with their shared humor, love and passion for life.

However, I found that the romance behind the SEARCH through hinting connections are what melted my heart and brought chills to my nape.

It would be an unjust disservice to simply label this book a romance, as it is far more than that. It is a wonderful adventure story interspersed with historical events and authentic period detail. Relenting to fate amid life's challenges and sorrows is a task we experience vicariously with hope.

The inner strife that Crystal faces is unparalleled to be sure. I truly hope to see what happens to this brassy, diva, hardship in the coming sequel. The author reveals the unfortunate of truth where, many times, in life's episodes of winners, there is almost always the dregs of losers. But Crystal is no loser! Her sacrifice is well received as her undying love is unrequited. The hind of her spark for life still lives in the embers of her broken heart.
A message is granted us all in this story of fate. I have never read anything so promising of love to be found in the unusual. I would have to agree with the accolades this book has garnered.
Perhaps I am bias, for had it not been for this book, I too, may have continued lost in search for my soul mate.

I highly recommend this book for you...or for your soul mate!

The hardback is different from the photo pictured. The quality is very good and the cover artwork is far better than the paperback, imo. And I highly appreciated the timely delivery.

There's not much to say that hasn't already been boasted. I loved the book. I have never read anything quite like this, dealing with such the interesting subject matter of reincarnation. I remember watching the movie; The Reincarnation of Peter Proud many years ago, but this plot dives deeply into a labyrinth of fascination and promise. This book was well written, and very enjoyable. Read Love's Eclipse of The Heart after this one. I assure you, you will not be disappointed. I believe the second book to be the better of the two, as writing skills show an impressive improvement. I look forward to the third installment.

This is the most amazing love story I have ever read. As such of a controversial subject, there would, undoubtedly, be opposite cause and effect. I can understand the wedge between church and some foreign beliefs as current reviews provide irrefutable proof. However, there comes a time when we need to set aside our stout worthy sermons just long enough to understand that this is a work of fiction, and the whole idea of writing novels is to entertain the public with new ideas. If this author has managed to stir up a hornet's nest, than he has done his job. And quite well, I might add. Perhaps the author is from India. I like what I have read here. I like the intricacies that K S Michaels had painstakingly plotted out so skillfully meshing three timelines of related souls and family. The story is actually quite beautiful. The idea of searching out one's soul mate in the fashion the protagonist did in this story was spectacular. Before reading this book, I had never given the idea of reincarnation very much thought, never considered how it could possible effect me. Now, after reading this book, I am elated with new, wondrous horizons. I wouldn't quite call myself an avid reader, however, out of the several hundreds I have read in the past twenty years, I trophy this one as my favorite book of all time. This story is the epitome of hope tandem with a privileged definition of true love.
