A 3rd Time to Die by George Bernstein
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
This book is so well written and heartfelt that without the paranormal elements, it is hard to believe it is fiction. The major question A 3rd Time to Die tries to answer is - what is another definition for love? Commitment? Devotion? Sweet pain? Perseverance? Acceptance?
Both main characters have to make choices which helps them learn, give, receive, and grow in a relationship. Maybe all that comes close. Imperfect people loving imperfect people, finding out who they are between their past lives and present time.
I delight in being surprised in the books I read, and it's fun to discover the surprises in this one. Authors who give courageously, who put themselves out there for the world to see, who help me see the world in a new way, are tops in my estimation, and George Bernstein does it with A 3rd Time to Die.
This book is so worth reading, it is thought provoking and very real. The author is so accomplished at characterization that I could clearly see from Ashley's viewpoint and why she acted in the manner that she did. I truly felt a strong connection with the main characters.
