By Ann Brashares (of The Traveling Pants variety)
Daniel has spent centuries falling in love with the same girl. Life after life, crossing continents and dynasties, he and Sophia (despite her changing name and form) have been drawn together-and he remembers it all. For all the times that he and Sophia have been connected throughout history, they have also been torn painfully, fatally, apart.
But just when Sophia (now "Lucy" in the present) finally awakens to the secret of their shared past, the mysterious force that has always separated them reappears. Ultimately, they must come to understand what stands in the way of their love if they are ever to spend a lifetime together.
Honestly, it's been a while since I've had a book that I want to get out on my roof and scream READ THIS BOOK!!! But this one really, really made me want to do this. I stumbled across it at a library book sale and knew I had to have it. It jumped right to the top of my tbr stack, too, because I knew it was going to be something I'd enjoy. The premise sounds awesome, right? Recurring lives, love, and a guy who can remember all the fun historical stuff (honestly, these rank at the top of the Drag Meradeth Into A Book list). Anyhow, I was worried it would disappoint, but really, it didn't. I stayed up way, way too late reading, and just didn't want it to end when I turned the last page. It was written to have a sequel, but that may or may not happen (though, really, it better!!!), so I really hope I can enjoy more of this story later. Haven't seen or heard of this one? Do check it out! Amazing writing, heartfelt characters, a timeless love story, and lots of fun historical stuff!
