Review: Across Eternity by Aris Whittier

Across Eternity by Aris Whittier 

Pages: 298
Format: ebook 
Buy the Book: Amazon 

Goodreads:  Born a genius; education, wealth, and prestige came easy to Logan Richards. Actually, there wasn’t much that Logan couldn’t learn or acquire. However, he knew there was more to life than money and power. Logan was determined to find the woman who he'd dreamed of his entire life and know what it was like to love her before he died. 

Amber Lewis, a waitress for a five-star restaurant in, Dana Point, California, was overworked, stressed, and wary of life since her sister, Heather, had passed away. Then, one evening while working she fell hopelessly in love with Logan Richards, a chivalrous man who felt deeply familiar. 

For Amber, it was the beginning of a voyage of self-discovery and renewal. For Logan, it was the completion of life. For each of them it was the deepest sort of love.

Kritters Thoughts:  From first glance, this book reads as a love story that is at first sight, deep and life-changing, but upon further investigation the heart of this book is a matter of debate - reincarnation.  First, let me express that I wasn't quite sure about this whole reincarnation thing as I was brought up that beyond your one life that you live there are two options - Heaven and Hell.  Now that I studied religion in a school setting and I hold a minor in the study of religion - I respect the idea of reincarnation, but I still adhere to the one life that I live, now the after that one life I am still debating.

Now that you all know my thoughts on this aspect of the book which is the heart of it.  I still enjoyed the book because I read it as a sweet love story that is so moving that I felt for these characters that they found each other and would eventually have to part from one another.  Of course the language of the book, referenced that they would see each other again - take what you would like, but I was able to enjoy this book despite not completing believing in the reincarnation thought.

A love story that is endearing and makes you enjoy the thought that true love exists and can sneak up on you around any corner.  

Rating:  enjoyable, but didn't leave me wanting more
