Well, I read this book based on all of the 5 star reviews! I enjoy a near death experience story as well as the next person, but this was way too unbelievable and trite. I wish I would have seen the list of this author`s other works before I read this book instead of after. Harlequen Romances? Oh! so that may explain why, when the mother is telling her daughter about her undying love for the girl's father, she relates their first lovemaking complete with when exactly she "climaxed"! TMI mom!!

I like novels about near-death experiences, and after death scenarios, but most novels are so disappointing, either lacking in credibility, or overly religious and dogmatic in nature, preaching punishment and fear. This story has depth, credibility and insight into the practicalities of forgiveness. I won't talk about the story-line, because you just have to read this very well executed, lovely story. Actually, it is not overdone to say this story is rather brilliant. It works on you, even after you finished reading it, lingering in one's conscious mind, working a miracle of forgiveness. Even if it is "just" a story, it is very powerful. The descriptions, the conversations evoke strong, deep emotions, which trigger inner reflection and in my case, healing from the past. I would have paid a lot more money to read this book. It is a unbelievable that this book is offered at such a low price. You can not go wrong, at all, to include this book in your Kindle Collection. I look forward to reading more from this author. I am hooked! Enjoy!

that this was a life after death, outer body experience type of book. I would have never picked it up. I got into the story, which at times was a tad unbelievable, and then BAM!,surprise, the characters are somewhere between life and death or something like that. I was put off when the mother was telling the details of her romantic relationships to her long lost daughter. It felt as if she were telling us, the reader, the story not her daughter. There was too much information shared for it to be a mother daughter conversation in my opinion. I tried to finish the book once the afterlife theme was revealed, to see it to the end, but it was just too much for me to bear. Talking o the dead is not my cup of tea. I am glad that this was free. I will be deleting this as well as book number five that was a freebie as well.

Thank goodness I only spent $2.99 on this book or I would have been really ticked. Not only did I waste money, but my time as well reading the book. I too relied on the 5 star ratings to purchase and read. The story starts well.....
but the author sort of goes off in different directions. Our heroine is so self-absorbed and whiny that it is hard to continue reading. I found myself hoping that somewhere she would seek counceling and the book would be over, but noooooo. It just kept going and going like the energizer bunny. Truthfully, I skimmed a lot of the story that her mom was telling her. I could not see where most of that was necessary for the story. I will most certainly keep an eye out for this author again and avoid her like poison.

I wish I hadn't wasted my time reading this poorly written book. It started out fine but then somehow, the author tried to add a different point of view and failed miserably. Choppy, confusing and many, many mistakes/typos. Don't these people proofread their work before trying to sell it as marketable/readable material? Shame! Don't waste your time or money on this one.

I purchased this book solely due to the excellent reviews, and it left me wondering if I read the same book. The character development was poor, the story line predictable. I kept hoping the book would redeem itself to no avail. Ugh. Skip this one-what an incredible waste of time and money.

The protagonist is telling about her life in this story instead of letting us experience what happened. Her daughter is sick with cancer and her husband is not supportive but I didn't feel a thing about it emotionally. The author's style of writing leaves us detached from the main characters. I can't recommend this book.

I truly forget on what alleged best seller list this book was touted. The idea was perfectly logical, a near death experience, but only death itself would keep me from plodding through it again. The writing is trite, contrived, and extremely sophomoric.
How many times can one get up from a blinding love tryst to brush one's teeth? I wish I had counted the times that the book's protagonist brushed her teeth after the ecstasy. At the end, alas, too late for me, I discovered this author also writes "romance" novels. That explains everything. This book is absolutely dreadful.
