__Know therefore that from the greater silence I shall return....Forget not that I shall come back to you...A little while, a moment of rest upon the wind, and another woman shall bear me.__ Kahlil Gibran

This quote, from the start of the book, pretty much tells you what the book is about. We follow two souls mates who are linked forever as they journey through time and we experience the different roles they play and places they lived. It was a very enjoyable read, not always the happy ending, b

It was a very interesting story and I was completely invested in it, thought there were occasional editing issues. The book would benefit from a red pen (if you open quotation marks, they must be closed; the difference between their and they're), but it was well written and had a good voice. Some characters were not developed at all, but I saw it more as a story of a soul than of a person. The soul developed while the people didn't.

Certainly worth a read, and I hope for good things from this aut

Are souls immortal? Is there reincarnation? Apparently so according the Genia Stemper. Not a book I would ordinarily read but I did anyway. The story of the lives of one girl and her family members throughout the times. How she came, how she died, how she was reincarnated and how her relationship with the same people varied from life to life. It was interesting

This book was an incredible journey through reincarnation into different lives and different eras. It was sooo fascinating to me to watch this one soul travel between bodies and live the lives that she did.

A simply wonderful reincarnation love story. This book will linger in my memory. It is well written and appropriate for young and old. I
intend to buy a copy for my daughters. That is high praise.

I got caught up in this one, which made it a quick read. A great adventure through centuries and lifetimes always routing for the two soul mates to be together.

I have a degree in journalism from Cal Poly San Luis Obispo. I have always loved writing about people, what makes them who they are, and how they relate with others and the world they live in. I also write educational material for Remedia because discovering a love of reading at a young age, I think, is crucial to enjoying life to the fullest! I live in Southern California with my husband, two ...more
