Story:

But one day she discovers Liam is onto something mysterious. In the attempt to reach him she meets her husbands look-alike but from another dimension.
Looking at him, Liam and Sandra's heart fill with hope. Can this Doppelganger be the perfect dad for Liam and fill the shoes as Sandra's husband? Can life become simple again? Buy the book to find out.


What I liked:
The language is super simple. The story flows consistently.

The story got me thinking of the various possibilities. It is spiritual + scientific. You will have to read it to believe it.

I dont want to give out spoilers. Leave your brain aside and read till the end. It will leave you gasping in surprise.

I liked that the author showed that life is never easy. The story showed both sides of the situation.

There are few characters in the book. I liked how the innocence of children is used as a motive to carry the story forward. I would have liked if the mother character was a little stronger.

What I wanted more:
The narration is very simple or bland. The story could have been bigger and a little more complex.

Bye. Take care.
