Two souls struggle to fulfill their destiny together, first discovering magical love during a fox hunt in 17th Century England, and again in 19th Century Philadelphia. Each time they are snuffed out by brutal murder, but are reborn a third time, in the 21st Century, where Ashley & Craig meet, becoming fast friends, their love of jumping horses a common bond. Then, as their unfaithful spouses destroy their marriages, they discover much more than friendship, as fate brings them together, and once again their ancient killer may be stalking them!
The prospect of a love that has spanned so many centuries had me anxiously waiting to get my hands on this sure to be memorable tale!
We see the brutal murders of the lovers in 17th Century England then again in 19th Century Philadelphia bringing us to the 21st Century where we meet Ashley in a loveless marriage with her long time husband, with 2 beautiful children and a love of horses. Craig knows his wife has been cheating on him for a long time but has yet to reach his breaking point. The two are in horrible stages of their lives when they meet through their love of horse and they cant shake the feeling of belonging.
This tale HOOKED me from start to finish! Witnessing those murders in the beginning and gaining a connection to the two lovers makes you race through the book. Horses are what bring the two together but it does not overpower the love story and concept that we receive. I loved the mystery of who the killer is (we don’t know till the very very end!), I was guessing the whole entire time. : ) There are twists and accepting the possibility of reincarnation and past lives. Man can Bernstein write a love story! He knows just how to get you to love the people he wants you to love and hate the ones that he intends for hatred. Marvelous!
I really enjoyed this book and I cant wait to see what else Bernstein puts out in this genre! If you are looking for mystery, love, some heartbreak, and destiny….this is for you!
