"There is nothing to writing. All you do is sit down at a typewriter and bleed." -Ernest Hemingway

This is a very insightful and interesting story. Waller begins his tale at the end where we meet Robert being interviewed by a young journalist. He relates a story about a man who meets a woman and their immediate spiritual and physical connection.

We follow the lovers’ path that takes them on a roller coaster ride of ecstasy and despair. Marriage and their lifelong commitment to each other does not end their love nor does death. They share a ‘dom soul’ or are soul mates.

The narrative then turns to an interview with a successful writer in 2055, 40 years after the ma

I was quite surprised by all the unexpected twists and turns I was led through while reading the book. The first part was heart-wrenching, as it touched upon memories of my own deep loss. It brought me into a place of deep connection with the couple in the story. So much of the story is filled with such a deep love, a love that, perhaps few have really experienced in their life.

Then the book takes quite an expected turn into a place of deep wisdom and mystery that comes from the eastern traditi
