"star-crossed lovers meet again -- with love win this time?"
Now this was a reincarnation story I truly enjoyed. Alec
Edwards is driving to a fundraiser he has no real interest
in attending when something happens to change his life. A
car going the opposite direction loses control and jumps
the barricade between the lanes of traffic, landing on the
car behind him. Once he realizes he's okay, he jumps out
help the victims. The car that caused the accident holds a
drunk driver, now dead from his injuries. But the car
behind him... as a doctor, he knows he shouldn't get
involved with a patient as this young woman instantly
becomes since he's the first on the scene. But when she
opens her eyes and smiles at him, then says, "It's you.
how I have missed you," it's all over with him. For the
first time in his life, Alec finds himself infatuated.
Danielle Morgan has never been in love before... but this
man isn't a stranger somehow. Within hours she discovers
just how attracted to him she is and it isn't just because
he's able to use his surgical skills to repair her face.
When she's under anesthesia, she returns to a place where
she'd died, Kourion on the island of Cypress. There she
relives a time when she, as Adia, confronts and becomes
reconciled with a former lover, Demetrius, who'd left her
pregnant and unwed. In his absence his family hadn't
recognized her child and so she'd suffered. Demetrius,
was Alec at the time, immediately sets out to rectify the
situation, but before he can marry her, all three of them,
Adia, Demetrius, and their baby are killed in an
Very quickly it becomes apparent that Danielle and Alec
truly star-crossed lovers, reliving the same pattern
throughout time. In each life there is a jealous
who interferes with the lovers so that when they meet,
in love, and produce a child out of wedlock, all three are
condemned to death in one way or another. In this life, a
psychiatrist who believes in reincarnation stumbles across
the truth behind their existence and tries to help them.
But will it be enough? Will Dani and Alec learn enough
their mistakes in the past to do things differently, so
that this time they and their child won't end up dead?
Another Chance, Another Time was an exceptionally well-
written book. The language was rich, the characters
interesting and instantly compelling, the plotline
beautifully thought out. The notion of a pair of lovers,
who repetitively come together, with a secret nemesis that
forever interferes, has never been done better. This is
the first of Ms. Snodgrass's books that I've read, and I'm
now a complete fan. She is a wonderful writer.
