When Anne and Neil leave on a one-week holiday hoping to reconcile after a two-year separation, little do they know that destiny has other plans for them. Their discovery of human bones and a bejeweled cross in the hollow of a tree open the door to the supernatural realm and the anguished life of Genevieve, a nun from medieval England.

Can Anne save her relationship and help Genevieve her eternal rest?


Fortunately for me, this book is far from boring. At first, all I could notice is how properly this story is written, considering the author is not an English native speaker. (well, I have a little chit-chat with the author, ehe). And also, the mention of nuns and religions, wow! It reminds me of Angels and Demons by Dan Brown, which actually started a bit boring. And at that moment, I was troubled. What if it’ll be the same as the latter? But then, it wasn’t.

This book will make you look forward to its next chapters. The story is so catchy and I can’t believe I will like the historical aspect of this book. I love the reincarnation and the “seeing a ghost” thing and I was so drawn to find out what happens to all its characters.

The words used by the author are very reader friendly, though there are some terms that I need to consult to my friend Meriam D, but overall, that will not make you not enjoy this story. All the scenes were properly executed and the characters we’re ok with me. The only thing that I like the least about this story is the romance part. I don’t know, but it sounded too exaggerated for me. But overall, this book is a great read.

Though the book cover is a bit adult-like, mind you guys, this book is very conservative. Highly recommended to everyone!
