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.

The creativity and the unravelling of the story was so captivating, the ending felt somewhat bland in comparison.
But as a whole it felt like it was the right way to end it.

I love this book so much!! I really hope there is a sequel (the ending just wasn't the end)! I recommend this to anyone who enjoys a great, tragic romance novel.

Really liked the book until the crap ending - I hate cliffhangers

Whether you are a believer in reincarnation or not you will love this book. The book talks of a powerful relationship which transcends lifetimes. The love between two people thrives death and destruction and leaves us the readers turning pages hastily. A must read.

I found this very boring.. Couldn't even get past the first few chapters.. Just was not intrigued to read it. I generally really like her stuff though! A little disappointing.

Terrific read. Couldn't put it down. Very interesting and unique topic. Highly recommend it if the reader is into topics of love and longing.

I'm a sucker for these kinds of stories and I wanted to love it, but unfortunately I just liked it. There were enjoyable parts to the story - Daniel's thoughts on memory, the different types of memory - but some of the rest of the story suffered from poor pacing and incomplete characters. I didn't get a sense as to why Daniel loved Sophia/Constance/Lucy. Only because he's always known her? Or because he felt guilty about their first encounter? For a purported love story, there weren't many instances of the characters being in love. There was longing, there was obsession, but not a lot of love. If the story had presented a few past lives of Sophia and Daniel actually being in love, it would be easier to buy that she's the love of his lives. It seems they never really even knew each other, frankly. Thousands of years of not really knowing each other is not much of an emotional impact.

Great concept, great read, but I'm not 100% satisfied with the ending despite liking parts of it...!
