Daniel's soul is reborn into many lives over the centuries, and he remembers every one of them. During Daniel's time as a soldier in 541 AD, he first encounters a young woman in North Africa. Their meeting has a life altering impact on him which continues in his future lives. Over hundreds of years and many, many lives, their souls meet again and again as different people in different countries. She is Sophia during the year 776 in Cappadocia, she is Constance in England in WWI, she is now Lucy in modern day Virginia...and he is always Daniel. Daniel and a few other souls (not all of them good souls) remember their past lives, but Lucy does not remember. She struggles with her attraction to this mysterious Daniel, while he struggles over whether they were never meant to be together. A welcome summer read by the author of The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants. Fans of Audrey Niffenegger's The Time Travelers Wife will be clamoring to read this planned trilogy by Brashares, and it will be a hit with adult and teen readers.
