    It made Me cry


    Any additional comments?

    Beautifully done.... The Hurt and the agony was very well developed.
    It took me to a time of the most incredible inhumanity of the Wars....
    It got me wanting to know Amilia myself, how she felt, the people who's lifes she touched.
    How the political injustices plague us to this very day......how History tends to repeat itself.
    How Love Can both set us Free or make us a slave.....
    How above all to be loyal to ones self.... To follow your own believes and not follow an
    Ideology because it will control you and it and will destroy the human Spirit.....

    Eleven minutes passed before Delaney Maxwell was pulled from the icy waters of a Maine lake by her best friend, Decker Phillips. By then her heart had stopped beating. Her brain had stopped working. She was dead. And yet she somehow defied medical precedent to come back seemingly fine - despite the scans that showed significant brain damage. Everyone wants Delaney to be all right, but she knows she's far from normal. Pulled by strange sensations she can't control or explain, Delaney finds herself drawn to the dying. Is her altered brain now predicting death, or causing it?
