    I really enjoyed this story. It was rather a unique look at the afterlife. This is a journey about a woman, Eleanor, who now that she is dead is trying to figure out her life. She wants to know what made her so restless? Why did she abandon her child to be raised by her parents? And now that she's been reunited with her family can she reconnect with them? Can she get them to forgive her? And will she come to understand the dreams she is having about people she has never met? Or will her being restless, unsettled, keep her from making changes and finding her answers? It's interesting take on the afterlife because they all live a normal life, in the same world they did when they were alive. The neat part is they can change their age and be that age if they want. They can share an actual experience with a person, so they can see it like it is just happening. They can have that person feel an experience as another person. It definitely has some interesting twists and different concepts of what death may mean. There is more I'd like to say but it will ruin the story for you. It's a bit confusing in the beginning mainly because I forgot they were all dead but keep reading, it all starts making sense. And there is such a cool twist in the story. I enjoyed reading it and would definitely recommend it. I look forward to reading more by this author

    I loved this story. It takes you back in time to a real historic event. Penny's story and her plight might be fiction (but could be true), the events and historical event in Ireland is factual and well researched and you feel like you are right there experiencing and seeing all that is happening. Penny has a difficult decision to make, follow love and become a rebel or stay in the safe wealthy life she has always known. As the reader though you truly want her to discover who she is and what she is capable of. It is a beautiful story, well written and totally engrossing. I highly recommend reading this story by PM Terrell.
