About this novel
We all know about the surge of interest in the survival of consciousness after death as millions of baby boomers face their own mortality. All this is reflected in popular TV shows and movies as well as trailblazing videos on the Web. The fact is that life's fast pace and our personal fears often keep us from addressing the most important existential questions, which can cost us our emotional well-being, happiness, and health. This is where this enchanting tale, with its unique perspective, fills the gap.
In essence a love story, this magical realism novel is one of those books that you don't just like but is deeply meaningful to you - books you love, keep, and pass on to your kids.

I like a wide range of genres. Favorites include Horror, SciFi, Fantasy, Thriller, LGBT, classics and history.
I found this book beautifully imaginative and creative. The imagery is so wonderful. The story is unique and the characters are solid and interesting. I really enjoyed it.
This book is narrated by the author, which in my experience tends to be a bad sign. However I enjoyed the narration. It's just a beautiful book overall.
I was voluntarily provided this free review copy audiobook by the author, narrator, or publisher.
I feel the author is really trying to convey this deeper than words story, but I'm just not sure if I can/can't understand the deeper meaning, or... there just really isn't one. The narrator is fine for a while but the whisper sound with the accent would just lose me sometimes. The story is okay I guess, characters are likable .
I find inspiration from books like Ishmael or Bassam and the Seven Secret Scrolls. I don't think this was bad in any way, but it was difficult for me to get through.
“I was voluntarily provided this free review copy audiobook by the author, narrator, or publisher.”
I like what I heard of the story but the narration was difficult to listen to. I probably would have enjoyed it if it had been read by someone else. Bianca reads this book in what sounds to me like an extra loud whisper or like she is telling a secret she is excited about. It was very distracting for me.
No, because I couldn't keep listening to it myself.
I couldn't say because I didn't get to the end of this one.
The story was interesting so if you don't have an issue with the narration this would probably be a good listen. This audiobook was given by the author, narrator, or publisher at no cost in exchange for an unbiased review via Audiobook Boom.
