How about a new definition of "Soul Mates"? I just finished reading, and re-reading, PF Kozak's book Take Me There. This author weaves a wonderful and glorious tale of life and love. The plot twists and turns, and to make it even more interesting, we the readers get to choose which plot to follow. I re-read this book several times, each with a different ending.
