One thousand years have passed in the heavens, marking the beginning of the Trial period. For every one thousand years, two soul mates are chosen to be reborn in order to test their love and faith through the trials and tribulations of life’s false reality.
John and Sarah are chosen.
The rebirth of soul mates is to go as planned: not a single soul shall remember the other until fate, inevitably, pulls them together. But from the sound of Sarah’s laughter, as John walks past her one day after school, fate is suddenly placed into his hands, as his love for her is so strong it breaks all laws and reminds him of whom she is.
This book is truly amazing. It shows you how evil can manipulate one’s mind and how good can withstand it all. It’s not your typical love story because this book talks about God, love and destiny. You don’t usually see me rate a love story with five stars. But this book, it’s worth the read.
You see, this story is about lovers in Heaven that would descend down to earth to test their love with trials. No, they won’t remember that they love each other, but still love and fate will bring them together and reunite them.
The only problem was, John remembers that Sarah was his love. And that’s not a good sign since Satan can shower his thoughts with pure evil that will make him turn tables. But John was strong, a really strong man.
To us Christians, we have problems after problems because Satan tries to manipuate us so that we would let go of God’s hand. For a guy like John who suffers from anxiety and depression, he let on. He never let goes and he never did. Whenever he feel hopeless, he prayed. Since this is my first time to ever read a love story like this, I would be lying if I tell you that it’s not good.
But the most terrible thing happened. Because of being busy with school, Sarah broke up with him. Layla, their future daughter, was starting to vanish from the skies and so does their future bloodline. He tried to move on with the help of Elaina. But it never lasted. Yes, he loved Elaina, but not as much as how he loved Sarah.
When he graduated, he never saw her sitting with the crowds, wearing her bright smile. Instead, he learned a terrible news from his younger brother, Gabe. She became a stripper, a drug-addicted stripper. And guess what? I was sad. Really sad. Because Sarah, I picture her as this perfect woman with high IQ. Her family despised of her. I blame Lucas because it’s him who pushed her do these stuffs. Who can blame him? Sarah shouldn’t have entered this kind of life. John kept his love for Sarah. He really loves her that he would race to California just to save her from her new persona. So that’s what he did.
John found Sarah in a bar and he asked her to come home. He prepared two tickets for them. One for him and one for Sarah. But Lucas knew their plan. He did the most unpleasant thing a man could do to a woman. John can’t stand waiting anymore. He went to Sarah’s apartment to see her tied and beaten up. What he did not know was that Lucas was waiting for him.
The most amazing part was when John and Sarah were on their verge of death, Lucas asked John to choose God and he’ll kill Sarah or choose Sarah. But John knew that if he chose Sarah over God, evil will triumph and if he chose God, Sarah will die. At that moment, I thought he would pick Sarah, but he said GOD anyway. I cried at this. It’s just so amazing!
Lucas threatened John more by pointing the gun on Sarah’s head. But he didn’t budge. When Lucas realized that he can’t pressure John through his methods, he shot John instead before taking his own life.
John was in comma and Sarah bore a baby. She never left his side until it was her time to give birth, she have to leave. She kept wanting John to wake up. As God gave breath to their baby girl, John woke up.
A highly recommended book about love and trust. It was beautifully written and the plot is wonderful.
