I loved this story so much, my personal copy had pages falling out of it. I couldn't put it down. It starts with cavemen times and tells of a love story unfulfilled due to tragic circumstances. Then, you find yourself reading a little bit into the future, hoping their story has a happy ending. Each story follows this couple a little bit into the future and tells stories of love and tragedy and loss. You root for this couple, hoping things work in their favour, but time is never on their side. I loved all the historical timelines and the little snippets of this couple's lives.

This book is a classic story. No matter how old I become, it still has the same beauty to it. A great read for anyone interested in history, forbidden love, or what happens after death.

The characters are story both lacked depth. The narrative and dialog didn't vary with the times, and the characters weren't very unique or engaging. There was little tension or suspense and none of it was romantic.

This is an interesting look at different historical settings as we follow two lovers who reincarnate and keep meeting each other.

This is a cute book. It's predictable but sweet. The characters aren't too well-developed; still, they are interesting and pretty believable.

This book was addicting to read. I kept screaming no whenever they would get separated. I thought that she could have worked on the ending a bit more though.

The back:
It starts in prehistory. A young man and a young woman fight over a precious jewel. Their time together is short, but the reverberations are lasting. The attraction they feel transcends their deaths. The affinity they feel is eternal.
Years pass. But fate keeps drawing them together. Whenever their paths cross, there is that strange attraction. That unexplainable affinity. That feeling that they've been together before, even if they can't remember when and they don't understand how.
Theirs is a love haunted by history. From Egyptian slavery to Greek society. From Massachusetts witch trails to Civil War battlefields. From Paris in the 1930s to present day. Circumstance will fight them... but a greater force will reunite them. Because some people are meant for each other--no matter how long it takes.

I was a baby.
So I begin.
