They Serve Bagels in Heaven - Review
Yes, this true story is a love story about Irene and her husband Saul. The love of her life. Her soulmate. But Saul died in 1997, and so this book is based on conversations Irene had with Saul from the afterlife.
Through Irene's interactions with different mediums, she was able to communicate with Saul (kind of like in the movie Ghost) and Saul relayed to Irene that their two souls had actually been together in multiple lifetimes and would be together again when the time was right. (There is even a glimpse into their souls' future.) Writing this book was, for Irene, part of the soul purpose that Irene and Saul's souls were meant to carry out together.
There is a good message of loving others, including your spouse, while you have the chance here on Earth. And there are resources in the back of the book if you want to explore your own soul plan and soul purpose.
Personally, I'm not sure how I feel about this book. I wish I had read it with someone else so that we could discuss it because there is a lot to discuss. But honestly, I feel like the title of this book gives the reader the wrong impression of what they're going to be reading. It's not exactly light and fluffy and comic, unless you think that reading about a past life being raped and bludgeoned to death or a past life as a victim of the Holocaust is light, fluffy, and comic. This book is not something that is easily accessible to everyone.
They Serve Bagels in Heaven is published by Irene Weinberg and is available to purchase now. I received a free review copy through the Intro NYC Blogger Network for my honest review.
