“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!”
-- Sarah Hill, The River's End Bookstore, Oswego, NY


Description

The latest from Ann Brashares, the New York Times bestselling author of The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants, a magical story of reincarnation and a love that lasts more than a lifetime 

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.
