You thought it was about the happily ever after … when all along it was about the story
To their friends in San Diego, Sophie and Neil Beaumont are a successful, happy couple. One rainy night in 1987, that illusion is shattered, changing Sophie’s life forever. As she struggles to pick up the pieces of her life, she doubts that the aching hole in her heart will ever heal.
But everything changes when her best friend’s child, Jonathan, is born. Feeling a sense of hope, she has an intuition that he will be a beloved soul she knew in a past life. Their strong connection inspires her to embark on a healing journey of personal transformation that changes the course of her life.
Prior to his birth, Jonathan and his team of spirit guides create his intricate soul plan. His life purpose is to share wisdom from the spirit world with others, to help them live their lives with less suffering. However, as the result of an unexpected event, he disconnects from the spirit world, and without access to that unique knowledge he was born with, he finds himself at the mercy of his own heartbreaking struggles. His spirit team is determined to help him meet his mission—after all, people like Sophie are depending on him. But can they find a way to help him awaken?
The Line Between is in the genre of visionary/metaphysical fiction— fiction that quietly and unobtrusively shifts the reader’s consciousness through the magical process of storytelling. It’s an inspirational story of hope, loss, friendship, forgiveness, transformation, and eternal love. It speaks the language of the soul and reminds us to embrace all of our life experiences—the everyday routine, the miraculously mesmerizing, and the rip-your-heart-out tragic moments—as equally meaningful.
I received an advance copy of this book from one of my contacts who's in the publishing industry, and I have to say: I feel like it came as a message at just the right time in my life. In fact, if I had to sum up this inspiring, thought-provoking novel, I'd say it's a message ... to all people everywhere, to young and old, to anyone on the planet who seeks reassurance that we're all here for a reason, that life has a true purpose, that we're supported in all we do even when we can't see our cheerleaders, that we're not alone. The Line Between made me feel like I'm part of a much larger fabric of meaningful connection and intention, and it's a pretty powerful story that can do that! I commend this first-time author for her impressive debut; in fact, at the end, I felt like I'd love to sit down with her over coffee and talk about where the book came from, how much was fact, how much was fiction. She drew me into her world for the hours I was reading the book ... and it was a magical, mystical world that gave me comfort and filled me with hope.
A gripping story that weaves together themes of spirituality, friendship, and interconnectedness. It made me think a lot about how my own life and experiences are intimately connected to those of my friends and family, in our current and potentially past lives. Highly recommended to anyone looking for an amazing read!
A story and characters that you can't stop thinking about weeks after you finished the book - that to me is what makes a novel great. The Line Between is just that. I stopped numerous times to retread passages. I highlighted and turned over the corner of many pages so I could remember the inspirational words. I cried. The author has a great attention to detail. I felt like I could feel, hear, smell and taste what the characters experienced (the description of the cakes made me want to raid the cupboards!).
i look forward to future novels from this author.
