Alex is such a wonderful flawed character who has survived a brutal upbringing mainly through the love of Mindy and her family. So when Mindy dumps her with no explanation, Alex not only loses her soul mate but her family. When Simon picks up the pieces and mends her broken heart she marries him. It is only with the death of Mindys mother that Alex and Mindy meet for the first time in five years. Mindy is married with two boys to a man she does not love and Alex is happily married to Simone but still recovery from an earlier miscarriage.
Kafkalas switches back and forth from present to past as we glean more of these two women and their personalities. It flows really well. I have to say I really didn't know who I wanted Alex to end up with, I kept swaying back and forth as Alex did. Having had my heart broken by my first love and who I thought was my soul mate, I really could relate to Alex and have often wondered how I will react if I ever met her again. As I felt I didn't get closure.( I like to talk things out). Having eventually found the love of my life and had two children I'm sure that with the space of thirty years I will be fine. But this story did stir up a lot of feelings.
Can you give the one who broke your heart a second chance or is it that you never stopped loving her in the first place? Soul Mistakes will keep you guessing right to the end with a few twists and turns along the way. Like I said I was never sure how I wanted this to turn out however I think I can say I was very happy with the ending. I think this story is going to be in my head for awhile as Kafkalas characters feel like your new friends and you want to keep getting to know them. I think I may have found an interesting new author to follow.

The book goes back and forth to the past and present as we learn why they broke up and what happened since.
I loved not knowing the ending, I had absolutely no idea what would happen. Personally, found that so refreshing
So well written and totally worth reading. I will be looking out for more books by E A Kafkalas. .
On the plus side however, I really related to some of the story - the sexual 'fluidity' and suppressing ones natural inclinations to take the easy road with a decent man who you never feel passion with; until you can't lie to yourself anymore and everything implodes...I totally get that (though not the infidelity). So all in all, worth a look for the reasonable price, if these sorts of issues might interest you...
Knowing what it's like to struggle with sexuality, to have to deny a part of yourself to stay socially acceptable for a job. I could empathize with Mindy. Being young, and insecure, and different and wanting very badly to fit in and be like everyone else. This was a great story about love and forgiveness.
I really liked Alex, and her dilemma. If anything, I found Mindy not to my liking, however, I understood Alex thought Mindy was everything. I truly enjoyed the secondary characters, particularly the quirky publisher Roz. And, I applaud that Kafkalas didn’t give in to the cliché of making the male characters caricatures or stereotypes. This book creates a real conflict, and makes it even more believable that people must be true to themselves no matter the cost. Real life can be messy, and I don’t think this book sugarcoats it.
I tend to read quickly, and things are often over too soon. I enjoyed this book, and look forward to reading others by Kafkalas. Luckily for me, I received all three for Christmas, so I don’t have to wait for the next one.
