Not very inspiring I was interested in the story of what Ophelia had done but we got almost none of that We just got silly, boring, stiff scenes with Ophelia and Gusto I feel cheated of the hours that it took to read this, even though it didn t take that many hours. Skip this one. Opened My EyesThis book resonated with me Fears, doubts, guilt Finding answers through trust, forgiveness, and letting go I did wonder about the mistake Ophelia made at the beginning of the book, and how it affected others But it also reminded me not to judge others The answers are not trite they are real I already meditate, but l now will listen to my heart And see what happens. This is a beautifully written book that follows the same character through two dimensions The first is what we know to be her daily reality, the world in which she lives, works, and parents This story line carries with it a mystery of sorts only as the book progresses do we find out what it is she s done and whether or not her actions can be or should be repaired I won t say any on that so as not to spoil it, but it s compelling.

Very good and differentWell written and full of meaningful insights about living in an authentic way The way the book is written is very different because the chapters alternate between the main character s normal reality and her inner one I liked that Recommend this book for anyone.
