"Feel the light pouring from behind the back of your head. Breathe in, now hold, then blow your breath to the center of the circle. As you do this, let your breath carry the color you have been holding behind your eyes, and stop lolly-gagging around. This is too important " These are the first words of Amach - a spirit guide - speaking through the mouth of Selena Howells in 1985.  Although Selena, with Amach's help has learned to understand and use her gifts as a psychic and healer, their relationship was so tumultuous, it terminated at the death of Selena's husband in 1995.Out of the blue, Amach returns to warn Selena of imminent danger to them both and offers clues that will solve mysteries in both their worlds.  The Marriage Bundle begins the circular tale of intense relationships across time. This is the first book of The Sacred Bundle Series, offering universal teachings to us on Earth and urging all peoples to stand in balance during the coming changes."There are many golden threads in the tapestry of this romantic, psychic mystery." Jane Anne Narrin, author of "One Degree Beyond: A Reiki Journey into Energy Medicine." . . thought and heart provoking." Mari Hall, Founder/Director International Ass. of Reiki, author "Practical Reiki" and Reiki for the Soul"

I hate admitting that I couldn’t finish a book I received.  I especially dislike having to write reviews for them!  This book has been lingering on my shelf for just under a year and I have tried NUMEROUS times to read it.  I would pick it up, I would read a few chapters and it goes back to it’s place on the shelf.  This process repeated, oh three or four times over the course of a few months.  At that point, I have to admit to myself it’s just not going to happen.

The synopsis sounded amazing, and I thought – hey I could really enjoy this book!  Unfortunately, it just didn’t do anything for me!  I’ve seen some amazing reviews for this book and I might in the future pick up and give it a try again, but at this point in time it’s going on my DNF list and staying in it’s spot on my bookcase for now.

Will I recommend this to anyone?  At this point I can’t answer that question.  Will I try this author again?  Probably, it might be just this book didn’t hit that “need to devour” button in my brain – so I’d be willing to try something else by her.

What other’s thought:

Review’s on Amazon


  1. I hate having to write DNF posts, but at least you are willing to pick it up again later to try again. Sometimes books you think are going to work for you just don't. I wouldn't force myself to read anything if I can't get into it. *sigh*

  2. Hate when that happens!! It's cool though. Not everyone will like every book! What exactly didn't you like about it?

    1. So very true :)
      I had a had time connecting with the characters and the story. It might have been just when I picked it up and what I had going on - so I'll give it a go again later in the summer when things are quiet.
