I’m not sure what I was expecting when I started to read this book but I sure was not expecting it to be such a mind expanding and life changing experience. This book is extremely captivating and after the first 2 chapters it was getting harder and harder to put the book down.

The story in short is about Jennifer who has had a very troubled past and is now a nun at a Convent in California, but when threat from the past comes back to hunt her she is forced to leave her own country. A convent in No

This is a story about unbreakable true love and spiritual-personal growth. It wasn't actually what I was expecting when picking up this book but the story really, really moved me emotionally. It makes you think about what really matters in life and being true to yourself, not denying who you really are. It was like reading a diary and I could relate to the main character so much that some parts of the story brought tears in my eyes.

“All have the ability to perceive and live in dimensional synthesis, yet they spend time with the sciences trying to separate these realms, splitting the worlds into minutia, seeking the god particle. They are searching high and low, 'out there', for the source of it all, but no matter how many accelerators they build, no matter how far they go, they will never find the source ‘out there’ because the source is within” 1 likes
