This is certainly one of the best books I have ever read relating to the after-life and a love that seems to transcend the physical world.
Although I read this book over 25 years ago and have read several hundred books since, I am still drawn to the haunting theme of this exceptional work. Perhaps the only book, which I consider superior, is Jack Finney's Invasion of the Body Snatchers.
Paul Gallico's book, although written in 1964, is as relevant today as it was 40 years ago. The mystery, fear and uncertainly of 'Passing Over' touches the heart and mind of most people, regardless of race, creed or religion. Besides the themes of the afterlife and love, the book also explores the evil of mankind and the eternal urge of some people to gain from the sorry, sadness and loss of others.
I would urge all people interested in mysteries, thrillers and the unknown to read this book.
