I have withheld a review of this book because I'm having a hard time putting into words just how enjoyable this book was to savor; not just read...savor! I agree, it is not a book for the faint of heart. It begins with a horrifying car accident and an excrutiating dive into the suffering of a burn victim; but it soon becomes so much more than just that. Do NOT be put off from continuing! You will be taken into the past lives of this couple and find yourself truly believing in the impossible; that love can span the centuries and endure. Such a fantastic accomplishment for this first time author. I wait in great anticipation for his next book! This one will be a hard one to beat!
