"This is by far one of my favorite feel good reads in quite a while. What a sweet fairy tale take on true love. On one hand improbable on the other hand the possibilities of alternative timelines and realities and second chances for one who has suffered the loss of a loved one. Helen and Jeff connect across dimensions with the help of some dust from a fairy godmother and the internet. A well written book this was a joy to read. With well developed characters I was rooting for as they journey in a race against time across alternative realities to regain a love lost. Highly recommend."
Deftly handled, lovely story
By Tiffany P
"So I started reading with some concerns. Would the author handle the communication carefully enough or be flippant about it? Would the characters behave realistically or would they too-casually and too-easily brush aside the impossible? I was exceptionally pleased that none of my fears came true. Both Helen and Jeff felt completely real to me as the author reveals their lives and characters through communications, thoughts, and actions. Helen's poignant goodbye email that starts everything off called tears to my eyes. Jeff's brusque response was a relief to me as a nervous reader, as it felt wholly realistic and served as a reassurance that I could trust the the author (new to me) to tell a deeply satisfying story.
I don't want to go too much into detail about the plot, but I appreciated the author's imagination regarding differences in dimensions as Helen and Jeff travel/quest in hopes of meeting. Flashbacks to their past were perhaps not strictly necessary but helped to round out the sense of their characters more fully. As much as it frustrated me a little, I was glad of the realism of their pre-quest preparations. I was happy with the role Sissy (both Sissys) played near the end, and I was satisfied that Helen and Jeff both made sacrifices in order to get their second chance (I can't stand, for example, time traveling romances where one character completely gives up -everything- to live in the time/world of the other). But also, their second chance includes things that matter most to both of them beyond each other (Sissy (both Sissys), Jeff's writing, various things of Helen's).
On a technical note, this story is also extremely well-written. I tend to be sensitive to writing style and word choice, and with this the prose disappears from notice and simply, beautifully, draws you in to the story. I highly recommend this to anyone intrigued by the blurb."
