Heartwarming Tale of Love That Goes Right After Much Trial & Error 13 Jun. 2014
By Meanwhile, Melinda - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
Swirling amidst classical music, classic rock, medieval romance, history, historic figures and beautiful clothes is a story of Alice, a girl who meets her first love Quinn. She later marries Dr. Donovan Trist, the son of a wealthy Senator and his family.

The story really revolves around Alice reworking her life to 'unbreak' her heart. After leading a tumultuous life with numerous heartbreaking episodes, it becomes Alice's challenge to change herself and the situations of her past life to let love shine through as it had in her teenage years. She is in a simulacrum of Heaven, and is accompanied by many very famous and infamous historical figures who all tender advice on each attempt at change. Most of the scenes are heartwarming, and you will love Alice. She is fantastic, especially after she develops a stiffer backbone. Her development through the story was stellar.

The only downside with the book is that we don't get really close to any other characters except for Alice. We know things about the other characters because Alice thinks and talks about them, but, other than Quinn, the Proprietress and Dennis, the other do not do very much. They rarely speak. I think it would have added a lot of depth and texture to the story to know more about Harry, Dennis, Quinn, Donovan and Quinn's parents. Not a huge backstory, just some particular personal details so they are less like window dressing. I took 1 star off for single character, in-depth characterization.

It's funny though, as the narrator is Alice, and everything is from her POV, you could actually read this book and not notice the lack of 3D people running around as it is Alice's quest after all.

In the story you will be faced with a logic problem based on emotions. I know it sounds like an oxymoron, but just read the book. You will also find first love, triumph, violence, tragedy, happiness, romance, friendship, travel, education, success and life lessons.

Bottom Line: Awesome Book! Working for love, what a concept. Some interesting life lessons from the author make it a book you can think about long after reading the last page. Heartwarming tale...

Loved this book!!! 17 Jun. 2014

I have never been totally consumed with a book like I have with this one. The author takes the reader on a journey that is filled with splendor and grace mixed with cold reality and sadness. My desire would be to have the same opportunity that the main character had. Oh, the things I would change in my life! I would highly recommend this book to anyone that has ever wondered, "What if?" My compliments to Ellen Ekstrom on a book very well written!!!

Tallis Third Tune 15 Jun. 2014
By desertlily - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
A story that reminds you of Alice going thru the looking glass over and over again. The love that Alice has for her first love causes conflicts most of her life but she gets advice from many fictional and real characters to finally make a final decision
