Synopsis

My Name is Memory by Ann Brashares

Daniel tells me that he's always loved me. That I feel the same. That I always have. Not just in this life, but in my last life, and all my lives before. But I don't remember him. He says he is always searching for me. Always hoping that one day I will remember. But it is only he that carries the memory of our love. I know that finding true love is never easy. Perhaps you have fought for it. Perhaps, like Daniel, you have endured the pain of it being unrequited. But I hope your quest ends happily. I hope you never have to face the heartbreak that inevitably awaits us. This is our extraordinary, unforgettable story.

Reviews

'Calling all Twilight fans!'

'The centuries-old background to their story is as compelling as the action in the present and makes their constant near misses tear-provokingly frustrating. And the involvement of Daniel's evil brother adds the heart-racing pace of this thriller. It's a book that will inevitably draw comparisons to The Time Traveller's Wife, and stands up well to that modern classic'

'A well-written love story'

'Life change alert: this spellbinding epic will alter your views on relationships and death. From the Byzantine era in 520AD to Virginia in 2009, Daniel pursues and loses his beloved Sophia because of his ability to hold memory from past lives. We can't wait for the film adaptation - the team behind Pretty Woman won the bidding war'

'Twilight 2.0? Edward and Bella have competition: this love story spans 1,000 years, has other-worldly flavour, and two sequels planned. Plus, the movie rights have already been sold'

'it has everything you could want from a good book ... I cannot recommend this book highly enough ... I suggest you all add it to your summer reading list. You won't be disappointed'

.blogspot.com 'There are a lot of books I like and there are a lot of books I love and this is by far a love that I'm sure if I was to read it again and again I would see it a new light each time. I can not wait to read the next in the series.

.blogspot.com 'It's the type of book that takes all those questions we ask ourselves about destiny and the meaning of life and explores them so convincingly that it's almost as thought the author has stumbled upon a secret. Magical'. I Was A Teenage Book Geek '[T]his beautifully written novel is already on its way to becoming a Hollywood movie'. Star Magazine 'This clever story about someone trying to catch-up with a long lost love, will be a hit with fans of Branshares'. Press Association A magical, suspenseful, heartbreaking story of true love... American Saturday Review My Name is Memory is a captivating, open-ended story that begs for a sequel. I'll be watching for it. Long and Short Reviews
