Book Review of Beyond Fate

Beyond Fate by Jackie Weger is a an emotive novel written in such a way that readers everywhere can only consider Weger’s Beyond Fate a literary masterpiece.  Profoundly moving, Beyond Fate has a cast of loveable supporting characters as well as an engaging heroine and charming hero.
Big Mama, Ward, Marilyn, and especially little Katie contribute to this novel with the individual's independent characterization adding great depth to the pages of Weger’s novel.  Even the heroine’s inner voice insists on taking the stage at just the right time and place.
In Beyond Fate, Cleo is camping alone, but not for long. Due to a chance meeting, she is introduced to Fletcher, an eligible bachelor with a newly released book  For Men Only: 101 Ways to Stay Married. The book’s title and fine print command appropriate attention, but Cleo isn’t immediately impressed. Thanks in part to her inner voice and a torrid past, Cleo avoids Fletcher. In fact, she dodges him.
Weger’s hero won’t take no for an answer. He not only pursues Cleo, but he instantly recognizes there is something different about her. In fact, Fletcher soon sees his future with this woman. Cleo, however, isn’t exactly convinced, but she is intrigued. Adding to her interest, Cleo discovers Fletcher is surrounded by supportive friends. At the heart of their family is Katie, a little girl with heartwarming ideas about how she’d like to deal with her own personal challenges.
Jackie Weger’s Beyond Fate is a tender sweet romance that reminds each of us that it only takes one person, perhaps one special moment in time, to turn a person’s life around. In that one second or minute, we’re all believers again and when the time is right, we can embrace the idea of “Romance is what makes the world go around.”
There are so many other underlying lessons to be learned and ideas a reader can cherish locked between the pages of Beyond Fate. As a reader, I held fast to a number of well written lines like: “Maybe he was all he could be; maybe he was locked in” and was drawn to tears on one page while thrust into fits of laughter several paragraphs later.
Jackie Weger’s Beyond Fate is a must-buy for contemporary romance readers. While not an inspirational romance, by genre, this novel is a most inspiring work of art. As always, Jackie Weger has a way of making this writer want to focus on improvements, not just as a writer, but also as a human being. There’s just something special about a Jackie Weger book. Her words warm the soul and soothe the heart.
