Overview from Barnes and Nobel:
A deeply emotional tale about Sophie Duncan, a successful columnist whose world falls apart after her daughter's unexpected illness and her husband's shocking affair. When it seems nothing else could possibly go wrong, her car skids off an icy road and plunges into a frozen lake. There, in the cold dark depths of the water, a profound and extraordinary experience unlocks the surprising secrets from Sophie's past, and teaches her what it means to truly live...and love.
I am not usually a fast reader but I finished this book in just two days. It was a freebie from Barnes and Nobel for my Nook. Most of the freebies are just so/so. This one is 533 pages of wonderful writing. I felt like I knew and loved the characters by the end of the book. And if you have any doubts about what happens to us after we die (which I don't have)this is a wonderful, wonderful way to think about it. Get a box of Kleenex and grab the book. It is still free on Barnes and Nobel. I can't wait to hear what you think of it.
