Logan Richards is doubly blessed. Not only is he a genius but he has a rare gift, he remembers things and not just from this life but all his lifetimes. He lives a life of wealth and luxury and has never lacked any material possession. There has never been an obstacle his intellect couldn’t overcome. But Logan has a problem: every night he dreams of the same woman, a woman he has dreamt of all his life. He knows she is real and he is determined to find her and convince her she belongs with him, forever.
Amber Lewis, a waitress for a five-star restaurant in Dana Point, California, is overworked and stressed. Her sister’s death has left her weary and wondering if there’s something more to life than mere existence. Then, one evening while working she meets Logan Richards, a chivalrous man who feels deeply familiar.
Fate has brought them together, but will their growing love prove strong enough to resist the forces that could pull them apart?
Describe this book in one word: Endearing
[I have already written a review of this book once before but my laptop randomly shut down while I was typing. Serves me right for not saving it, eh? Well…anyway, here is my second attempt!]
Across Eternity is a very emotional book, while reading I teared up several times. The ending is especially emotional.
Logan can see his past lives, and he has always seen Amber when no one else could. He stopped seeing her when he was 10. I thought that this gift/power was very confusing. It wasn’t explained in great detail. Plus, towards the end of the book, we find out that Logan has an illness. But it never really went into what the illness was. Was it cancer? Was it something else?
As a character, I loved Logan. He just cared so much for Amber, and waited a long time for her.
Amber, I had difficulties with. She was overly dramatic at times and ran away from difficult situations.
Across Eternity reminded me of The Time Travellers Wife, the storylines aren’t that similar, but it did ring a bell when I thought of it.
Overall, I took two stars off this book because I didn’t go much on Amber, and in parts it was confusing and didn’t explain about the illness. But Across Eternity made me tear up towards the end and I liked that it bought out some emotion in me!
