As I was reading this, I was planning on giving it four - or even five - stars. And then . . . the "ending." While I didn't find myself wishing or wanting to throw the book across the room, I can easily understand why others have. The "ending" is extremely frustrating and disappointing. ( )

Lucy has a crush on Daniel and hopes he will notice her before the end of high school. Daniel has memory that spans several lives. He recognizes that Lucy has the soul of Sophia who he has loved in past lives. ( )

This book was great, I couldn't put it down! The ending killed me though, I need the next one to come out. ( )

UGH!!! This book is falling so far short of my hopes for it.

The premise of this book really grabbed me - the idea of having a soul-mate that you keep being reborn into life with.

The trouble is that the characters are fairly flat and unlikeable, some of the times and places and events seemed forced, I felt many words were thrown in because they were "big" words. The conversations were dramatic or ridiculous. I was listening to the audio version of this and felt that the actors reading the parts were poorly matched to the characters. I made it to disc 3 of 9 and wonder if I was reading this would I have a different reaction. I could not tell if this book was directed to a YA audience of an older one. I did read and like Ann Brashares Sisterhood series and really liked that...but this was impossible for me to finish. ( )

Book description

A romance that stretches across centuries and past lives constitutes the core of Brashares's varied second adult novel, the first in a planned trilogy. The story is primarily that of Daniel, as, in the present, he pursues Lucy (whom he knows as Sophia in a previous life) and attempts to persuade her of their history and destiny, but his passion initially and understandably scares her off. He disappears, presumed dead, but Lucy, unable to forget him, investigates his claims of their history until she discovers the truth.
