Product Description

Amazon Review

Best-selling author Richard Bach explores the meaning of fate and soul mates in this modern-day fairy tale based on his real-life relationship with actor Leslie Parrish. "This is a story about a knight who was dying, and the princess who saved his life", Bach writes in his opening greeting. "It's a story about beauty and beasts and spells and fortresses, about death-powers that seem and life-powers that are". Yes, it is all that, and more. On the earthly plane this is about the riveting love affair between two fully human people who are willing to explore time travel and other dimensions together even as they grapple with the earthly struggles of intimacy, commitment, smothering and whose turn it is to cook. Their love affair and happy ending inspired many enthusiastic fans. Years later, some of these fans were devastated to discover that this match made in heaven didn't manage to stick (the couple are no longer together). Bach explains that lovers don't have to stay married forever in order to be lifetime soul mates. Read this as a lesson about love's enchantments and possibilities, but don't count on this book to keep you and your mate on the bridge across forever. --Gail Hudson

Review

"To a public that desperately wants to believe in love, Bach says: Hang on. Take heart. There is such a thing as a soulmate." -- "The Atlanta Constitution" --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

I read this book 5 or 6 years ago when I was working on a Kibbutz. We didn't have many books available to us and so everytime a book became free to read there was a real fight for it. I won once!! and this was my prize. It's a book that I've never forgotten and contains lessons and guidelines for all of us regarding relationships. The underlying message is that although we all have an idea of what our "perfect" partner might be, we shouldn't discard those who don't match this, as by doing this we may have missed out on someone who could have been sooo good for us. A quote from the book that I think is so true goes something like this " if our perfect soulmate is someone who meets all of our needs all of the time, and if variety is one of those needs, then no one person can be our perfect soulmate..."- or something very similar to that. It's a book that make you think, makes you look at the world around you, your relationships, friendships etc...and analyse them. I loved it and I hope you will too!

I had high hopes for this book as I had really enjoyed Jonathan Livingstone Seagull. My biggest problem throughout reading this book was that I didn't particularly like Richard Bach! Leslie Parrish is clearly a saint and there were numerous occasions where I put the book down in frustration at Bach's behaviour towards her. I later discovered that Bach, on his quest for love (and affairs with many women), had in fact left his wife (who he acknowledges in the book) but also their SIX children who were not mentioned at all! I just found it very self absorbed, and a bit of a hypocrisy to write about love after learning of his lack of responsibility and love for his children. I didn't like him very much I'm afraid and wish I'd left it at Jonathan Livingstone Seagull.

I was wanting a book to read when my friend asked me if I had read this book - I hadn't!! He said it's his fave book so I thought if it's the best book he has ever read then it really is worth reading so I bought it.

It took me a long time to read, I kept putting it down and coming back to it now and then so it wasn't a page turner in the sense of a book that you can get lost in.

This book really makes you think about things and I mean really think about things. I think that's what took me so long to get into it and read it. It just makes you think about things in ways that they probably haven't done before.

I came away looking at things in life in such a different way so even if it takes you a while to read this book from the start to finish it will truly be worth it.

I've read this book more than 10 years ago and I still remember it. Such a gorgeous story, I couldn't stop until I've finished and I got trapped in all the pages. Somehow I still wonder: is it possible? What's out there?
I have to read it again, love it. This one and "One" are my favourite

On first impressions it could be considered a slow starter with no clear direction. However this is merely lowering you into the thought process and world of Richard Bach, it quickly becomes fascinating and compelling, the ideas and philosophies that are formulated by the author during this largely relatable tale seems to construct clear parallels to that of your own life.

The story almost becomes void in the sense that it's more a context of a largely 'spiritual' journey, for use of a better word, into ones self.

I would recommend this book to anybody, as the style of writing and ideas are universal and can easily be understood, enjoyed and learnt by all that will lend some time, enjoy!
