the other life I’ve lived…Glimpses of Wilderness (The Glimpses #1) by Lee Ann Ward


"“It’s like I have to be asleep to feel truly awakened”
This is the story of a beautiful lifetime love of Anna and Robert, which will capture your heart from the beginning until the end." - Joe, Goodreads

Description:

Published: December 2017

No nightmares about my dad’s car crashing or my sister’s tiny face vanishing in a window of red. No, not anymore. Now when I sleep I fall into an expanse of frozen wilderness, the other life I’ve lived…

The one I’ve lived with him.

Anna experiences vivid dreams from a past-life she lived in the 1800s with her husband Robert and their children in the wilderness of the Michigan Territory. Much like her own mother grieving the man and child she lost, Anna can’t simply let go of the memories that haunt her.

But when she runs into Robert in this lifetime, a whirlwind of their past lives—and deaths—rocks her modern world to the core. What will she be willing to risk to spend every lifetime with Robert? 

In the twists and turns of “repeating” their lives over and over through time, Anna must sacrifice everything for a glimpse of immortal love. 

EXCERPT

I can still feel his touch on my skin and his lips on my mouth. I sink deeper into the covers and close my eyes so tightly I see stars. I want to be with Robert a little longer. I’m not ready to leave, never want to let him go. But now my face is too wet with tears to sleep. Robert’s gone, trapped in our wilderness memories until I’m lucky enough to dream again. And I’m here without him. Always here… 

I swipe the tears until the remnants of eyeliner I failed to remove last night are simply black smudges on my face. She stares back at me from the mirror—the Anna of the wild, the Anna who misses her husband and babies, the Anna who’s as broken as her mother, no matter how hard she tries to pretend she’s okay. Me… 

How can I accuse Mom of living in the past and never letting go when I’m holding on to a past from a couple hundred years ago? I know what I have to do. I pick up my phone again and open Facebook. No one will ever need to ask about my relationship status again. I type his name and read my new status update: Anna Berkeley is in a relationship with William Hull.
