Midnight Valentine by J.T. Geissinger

Do not stand at my grave and cry; I am not there. I did not die. "One lifetime wasn't enough to love you."
This book spoke to my heart, sang to my tears, and wrapped me in the most tender embrace before saying good-bye. I didn't want the story to end.
I LOVED this book despite there being a couple of personal pet-peeves in it: 1. A hero/heroine who still mourns/longs for a deceased lover/spouse years after their death 2. The story is told from a singular point of view. In romances, I prefer to read the hero's and heroine's perspectives. I should mention the epilogue is told from his point of view.
So, yeah, I'm rating this book FIVE stars, because it's a beautiful masterpiece. In this book, J. T. Geissinger tells the story of love lost and love regained. For anyone, myself included, who's ever lost a romantic love to war, violence, an accident, or personal illness, the mysteries of this story might bring a smile to your face or compel an unbidden tear to slide down your cheek.
Some will dismiss the plot as fanciful and impossible. This reader doesn't care. I read to escape the confines of this life, to dream and imagine the improbable. I don't mind setting aside "reality" every now and then for a good book.
