Radiance: Love after Death by Debra Jayne East

About the book:

When Marena Jacobs drove home on a cold, rainy night to Eden, North
Carolina, she never expected to meet the man of her dreams, after she
died. Surviving a near fatal car accident, she slowly recovers from a
traumatic brain injury and crushed leg. In the months ahead, she
remains haunted by what happened in the seconds of time she passed from in to death. Was it real or imagined?
Before the accident, her life had almost come to a tragic end.
Contemplating suicide, she found a crooked heart-shaped stone in the
grass that saved her. She realized that it carried a message. "Even
though your heart is broken, it's still a heart, you can still love."
A stranger was about to prove to her how true that was!

My Review:

Radiance: Love after Death is not your typical love story. Marena Jacobs has a broken heart and spirit after a divorce from her husband who left her for another woman. One night driving home from work she is in a terrible car accident, dies, and comes back to life. While she was dead she meets a man that she knows loves her...an angel.
Join Marena on her journey to find out if her heart really can love again. Who is this man that has shown up at her door? Is he the one that can heal her heart?
I liked this novel and the very different take it has on a traditional love story. It will have you asking yourself, "Can my love stand the test of time?" and "Do I have a love that is eternal?" Hopefully you will come away from reading this with a new appreciation for LIFE! Appreciate every day and live it to it's fullest. Not only is this a great love story, but it is also an inspiration to those who read it, to appreciate the love in their lives and the life they have to enjoy that love.  Overall, I really liked the book, however the middle was a little slow-moving for me.
