When Our Souls Fall in Love Before Our Bodies Meet

They fell in love over email, discussing Ayn Rand’s novel, Atlas Shrugged. Neither remembered the other’s face clearly. Both were married already. And she had a five-year-old son. But in the span of a few letters each discovered his soul’s mirror-image. So how could they live apart? 

Woven with poetry and philosophy this is a story about the nature of love, its enchantment or curse, and the heartbreaking question: Can a mother secure her child’s happiness by sacrificing hers?

Definitely an Adult Romance - not for teens!

So it starts out Ellie is married to Jake and Neil is married to Faye. Ellie believes she is happy but Neil knows he is not. On happenstance Ellie gave Neil (who works at a bakery where she gets baked goods for her son) a book in which they fell in love with intelectually with each other. They exchanged emails and then phone numbers. Thus began a love affair of the minds. Both spouses knew they were communicating with each other but neither knew they were falling in love without even meeting. I say this is not a book for teens because it is more of an intellectual love rather than your usual teen romance story. And then the story really takes off and we find our secrets, plots and twists to each character. The narrator, who is also the author, did an amazing job. I usually do not like books where the author reads their own work because I believe it should be interpreted by a 2nd party and read from their POV, but on this book, she was spot on. Not a lot of range in voices but enough to know who was speaking. I think this author has a hit with this book and would do amazing with a love trilogy. I will definitely listen to this author as an author and a narrator again.
