I came across this book after I met who I thought was my soulmate. It helped me to understand all of the relationships that I had been thru to get to that point. Although we are no longer together I trully believe in 'Love & Fate'. I have given several copies to various friends and will continue to share this wonderful book.
The stories in this book are amazing. I highly recommend this to anyone who believes in fate and destiny. And if you don't, this book should certainly make you a believer. These stories were just so incredible.
