Excerpt

an injured man and a lovely woman, guests of the same summer hotel; a slow recovery; a leisurely sweet acquaintance; the light that never was on hill or shore; and so the charm was wrought. My accident held me a prisoner for six weeks. But my love put me in chains in six minutes.

*****

I loved this book and found it easy to read despite the formal language the author uses. The story is told superbly and will interest anyone who thinks about life after death. It isn't morbid and it leaves the reader with much to think about regarding our daily inter-actions with our loved ones here on earth It's thought-provoking and I highly recommend it.
