“Daniel is one of the few people fortunate enough to have 'memory', or the ability to remember past lives in vivid detail. He has the ability to recognize souls he has met in his previous lives, including Sophia his 'soul mate'. Whenever Daniel manages to find her fate rips them apart in one way or another. Follow Daniel as he tries to locate Sophia, convince her to remember him (she doesn't have memory), and fight the forces keeping them from loving each other. A love story unlike anything I've ever experienced!”

- My Name is Memory unfolds in chapters alternating between Daniel and Lucy’s voices. What did you think of this technique? Do you think the author captured both voices equally well? Was there one character whose point of view you preferred reading?
