Janice was still chatting with the lady when I returned. I ignored them and went straight to my office, reminding myself that they were just distractions. I closed the door so I could concentrate on my work, but I couldn’t get over William’s actions today.

Moments later, there was a knock at my door.

‘Come in.’

‘Hi, Grace.’ Michael stood by the doorway. ‘May I have a moment with you?’

I froze. Please spend eternity with me. ‘Sure.’

He entered my office carrying a folder and settled into the seat across from me.

Being alone with Michael always sent a warm sensation to my heart, but today a dull ache washed upon me knowing we were two strangers in a foreign land without any history in this place. Only I had the memories and didn’t know how to convince him. Time was not on my hands.

INDIGO – (A Novella) by GERALDINE SOLON

Cover image of the book 'Indigo' by author Geraldine SolonGrace and Michael are soulmates, and Heaven is the only world they’ve known.

While Grace and Michael play a game of tag, they discover an area prohibited by God. Piqued by their curiosity, Grace urges Michael to explore what’s out there, not realizing that the dark hole is a tunnel that leads to Earth. Michael is hesitant to probe further, but a slip in the ravine causes him to tumble and land on Earth. 

 Grace can’t afford to lose Michael, so she follows him to Earth, hoping to bring him back to Heaven.

Unbeknownst to Grace, on Earth, Michael is a married man with a three-year-old daughter and has lost all his memories of Heaven, including Grace. 

Despite the circumstances, Grace must bring Michael back during the full moon; otherwise, she is stuck on Earth forever.

I can’t remember a time, even as a child, when I haven’t been passionate about books and reading.
I began blogging, when I realised just how many other people out there shared my passion for the written word and I have been continually amazed at the wealth of books that are available and the amount of great new friends I have made, from literally 'The Four Corners Of The World'.

  • I remember your earlier feature of this, and I’m still not sure what to think. Something about it reminds me of another book I’ve read (or maybe a movie?), yet I can’t put my finger on it.

    Maybe I’ll be convinced when you do a full review… though from what you’ve said, it might be difficult to review without giving away too much.

    • Hi Kelly,

      I can’t think which film that might have been, the only one which springs to mind is ‘Heaven Can Wait’, but that sounds nothing like it when I checked out the premise.

      As you say, writing a review was quite tricky, but there is an unexpected twist in the storyline towards the end, which makes it very recommendable.

      This one is available for $1.30 (£1.00 Sterling) on Amazon Kindle, which I would probably pay quite happily for a novella, given the price of books and magazines here in the UK. However, I have no idea what you guys would expect to pay Stateside, so I don’t know if that is a good price or not!

      Thanks for taking the time to comment and I hope that all is well with you 🙂
