From New England’s Storyteller Steven Manchester comes a soul-awakening novel about love, faith and family. During Phinn Reed’s romantic quest, he discovers that even through great suffering and loss, he is never alone—not ever—and that we are all eternally connected.
Phinn Reed enters the world with God’s promise of finding his soul mate. With heaven’s memories erased, his romantic quest teaches him that the heart often sees clearer than the eyes—and that not everyone has ordered the same items from The Menu. This inspirational novel is heartfelt evidence that love stories come in many different forms.
My thoughts: I enjoyed the story of Phinn, as he has the chance to pick out the different characteristics he wants to have in life at the beginning and is warned that he will have to accept the good with the bad. The story follows him as he is born and then goes through his life. I thought that this book had some excellent gems! The characters are well written and the underlying message is excellent. I highly recommend picking up a copy of this book!
I received this book from Celebrate Lit. This is my honest review.

More from Steven
“None of us are ever alone.” I believe this truth in every fiber of my being. For me, few things are more tragic than a fellow human being who is feeling alone. It’s the reason I wrote my new novel, THE MENU.
The premise of THE MENU is a simple one. If you believe in an afterlife, do you also believe that your spirit existed before you came to this Earth? And what if you had a say…what if you actually picked everything you’d experience in this life from a MENU?
