    Book Review

Reviewed by Rita G. for Readers' Favorite

When a pink letter arrived from the United States, Hannah's family was excited. The letter was from a distant relative. The Danish family had never met Ed but was unfazed when his next letter invited Hannah to visit the US at his expense. After only six days of the visit, Ed asked Hannah to marry him, and she said yes. When she called her parents, her father was ecstatic.

Married life was not easy. The couple had little in common. They lived in an old house on a goat farm. The culture was very different from anything Hannah had ever experienced. Hannah was a devout Mormon. She believed Ed was too. Soon she began to question his beliefs. After discovering his true beliefs, Hannah had a break down.

Ed believed that their son, Samuel, was the reincarnation of Samuel of the Old Testament and their son, Matthew, was the reincarnation of the Apostle Matthew. He believed Hannah was Hannah, the mother of Samuel, reborn, and that, in his former life, he had been the Apostle Peter. He also believed in space aliens. Slowly Hannah "awakened" to the realization that Ed was right. Hannah was visited by Deborah, Zipporah, and Eloi.

This book is well-written. There will be many that will be skeptical or uncomfortable with the subject matter. The text is well-organized and developed. I've always been curious about the faith of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latte-day Saints. Hannah sheds light on some of the aspects I questioned. She also goes in great detail concerning her new found faith. Hannah has lived an interesting life. She shares her story to enlighten others.
