REVIEW: On the Third Day by Brenda Hasse

On The Third Day
An Afterlife Journey
Brenda Hasse

Marie Michaels had the perfect life; a happy marriage to her college sweetheart, mother to two beautiful teenage children, and the owner of a successful business. Her life was everything she had imagined, until the day she was diagnosed with terminal cancer.
After undergoing several medical treatments, she loses her ability to hear making communication with her family and friends challenging.
After slipping into a coma, lingering for several weeks, and expelling her last breath, she finds herself in the spiritual afterlife where she is greeted by her spirit guide, whose purpose is to protect and escort her to the other side. Distraught over her inability to tell her loved ones good-bye, her spirit guide grants Marie additional time to say her final farewells before they cross over together.
Since she cannot be seen or heard by those in the physical world, how will she convey her heartfelt messages? Will her soul find the closure it seeks before her time runs out on the third day?

What an emotional story this was. There were so many feelers that left me smiling or in tears. A true heartwarming yet heart shattering read.
The cover. The cover is simple and beautiful just like the character and the story-line. This is one of those ‘don’t judge a book by its cover’.
The character. Marie Michaels is an amazing character. She is smart, business oriented, and such a beautiful soul. She captured my heart and reeled me in. I felt her pain, her sadness, and when she was happy. Her emotions just flowed off each page. I just loved her so much.
The story-line. The story-line was phenomenal. This author took us on a totally different course and left me thinking if this is how it was after you died. I was left pondering these questions. You don’t find very many authors who write about what happens after you die. I was completely fascinated by the details in this story. I also felt as if I was part of the story. It’s like my mind left the real world for a while to follow this character from beginning to end. When I wasn’t reading this story, I was daydreaming about the character. My mind was filled full of hope and inspiration. This author is a pure genus and I highly recommend this read.
