Aubrey was married to the love of her life, Matt. Pregnant with their first child, they were excited to be planning their future as a family when Matt had a terrible accident, leaving Aubrey with many internal struggles and a great deal of heartache. Aubrey and her best friend Laura, both attorney's, stick by each other through relationship heartaches and life's indecisions. Aubrey finds it difficult to have a relationship with anyone when her heart still belongs to Matt. In her quest to find closure and answers as to how Matt died, she believes that he visits her and sends her messages. Is there really this ability to communicate with him and do her new psychic abilities have anything to do with his return?
Aubrey finds love with a man named Gavin, who strangely resembles her deceased husband in many ways. Their new found love will have you falling in love with them. Matt's death left her questioning the why's and how's of his accident, making it impossible for her to get involved with anyone. The ultimate question is...Is Matt really dead? Is his ghost what is helping Aubrey move on with her life? How will she truly find out what the truth is and be able to trust what her future holds? Is there life after death?
Once Upon Another Time is a great novel. The ending allows us to experience how Aubrey chooses to accept her life and the events that have occurred. Rosary McQuestion tells a beautiful love story that reaches beyond the limits of the heart.
Then again, my unenthusiastic feelings may have been because the author just couldn't decide on a format. Is this going to be a serious romance, or a comedy? The funny moments seemed rather forced and out of place. The serious moments were absolutely breath-taking, however. Sadly the fact that all of a sudden Aubrey could read minds just didn't work. One of the saving graces was the child, and the way Aubrey mothered him so well. I was saddened that the ex-hippie parents were kind of scoffed at. Also there was a back story with Aunt Millie that just was never really resolved.
I got the book for free and so it was not a great disappointment. I think even if I'd paid 99 cents, it would have been OK. The author has some great ideas, but they need a bit of maturity and perhaps some great editing to make things fall together a bit better. Read the sample pages and if the book grabs you, then you will be entertained. You are the sort of reader the author wants! However, if you don't care for it, then perhaps you need to look elsewhere!
The book is NOT a depressing book. I even laughed thru some sections. I liked the way the author did it within an engaging paranormal story... quite a novel idea.
A quick synopsis: The heroine, Aubrey McCory, an up and coming atty and single mother, loses her beloved husband, Matt, in a terrible accident.
The event is so distressing to her that she has no rememberance of the events surrounding his death; Counseling has not helped her to remember.
After the 7th anniversary of Matt's death, Aubrey beings to have paranormal episodes in which Matt appears to be visiting her and leaving items for her to see.
Aubrey meets a new guy, Gavin, a construction engineer/project manager. Gavin surprisingly reminds Aubrey of Matt in many ways.
The book started off great grabbing the reader's interest from the very beginning... then stalled... then picked up again at the end.
Perhaps it was just my reaction to the grief aspect. I was ready for Aubrey to move on before she was ready. :-)))
Overall, I would recommend this book. It reminds each of us that we each handle grief in our own way; you cannot rush a friend when they are dealing with grief.
