Review: Essence

Essence Essence by A.L. Waddington
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

***** April's 5 Star Review ***** 5 Dreams and Screams

Jocelyn Timmons does not believe she is anything special — just an ordinary high school senior, living an ordinary life full of school-work, volleyball and friends. She’s about to find out how wrong she is.

Jackson Chandler moved in to the house across the street. His dark wavy hair, green eyes and charismatic personality draws everyone to him. Everyone, but Jocelyn.

Whenever Jackson gets near Jocelyn she feels ill and dizzy. When he touches her, she blacks out and has visions of another life, in another time. As the odd hallucinations evolve and become clearer, she feels a strong pull towards the people she sees there. Frightened, she watches her once stable life begin to crumble around her and she begins to question her own sanity.

Could it be possible that these episodes are actually her own memories of a life she is living somehow, somewhere, some-when? Maybe this is time-travel or some other paranormal mysticism? Our minds often wander, but can our souls?
What if you could live not only 2009 but what if you could live in 1878? Would you? Well Not only does Jackson Chandler and his family so does Jocelyn Timmons. This book is amazing! The love story between Jocelyn and Jackson surpasses all other love stories. The author draws you inside the story in such a wonderful way. Essence left me wanting more. Not only could I not put it down, I didn’t want to put it down. I felt like I was part of the family. I fell in love with not only the characters but the story line was well. I am excited about the second book in this series I can hardly wait to see where Jocelyn and Jackson take me next. If you like reading about Time Traveling this this book is for you. Once you start reading it you will not regret it one bit. IT IS A MUST READ!
