From prehistory to the present, theirs was a love for the ages. It starts with a fight in a cave over an elusive green jewel . . . and then travels over time and lives to include Egyptian slaves, Greek temples, Massachusetts witch trials, Civil War battlefields, Paris on the eve of World War II, America in the 1960s . . . and a pair of modern-day teenagers. For readers who believe that love is stronger than time or death, this is an unforgettable novel from a wonderful storyteller.
DeLibrarie (Nichole) Review:
This is such a unique book, or at least it was when I first read it. The idea of reincarnation really seems to have grown and been picked up by several authors such as in Passion by Lauren Kate or My Name is Memory by Ann Brashares. But awhile back it was a really new idea at least to me and I really enjoyed it. It opens your eyes to what reincarnation could really entail. And if you love history and a good love story, then you'll love this book. It starts in the pre-historic era and goes all the way up until the present day.It's heart-wrenching and beautiful and frustrating because you just want them to be happily together (read it and you'll understand exactly what I mean by that). It makes you wonder if there's someone waiting out there for you who you've already known for years and years and who you're destined to be with. It's short and sweet but gives you a lot to think about. The ending left the story wanting, but it works and leaves you with a lot to consider. It's a great book so give it a read some afternoon!
