My Name is Memory – Ann Brashares

When nature offers you one of her true gifts, there’s a special punishment for those who throw it away.

Daniel has been  in love with Sophia for centuries.

Their lives have been connected from the first time they met back in North Africa in 541.  Daniel has this special gift, although, it could also be seen as a curse of being able to remember each and every time he has lived – as a different person, in a different country, a different century, throughout history.

Sophia has some familiar images that she dreams about, small tidbits and dreams of places she feels comfortable in, full of feeling, although she has never been in these places..ever.

Sophia is like Daniel, she has been reborn through the centuries with only one difference.  She has no memory of her past lives.

As Sophia, in present day whose name is Lucy, is slowly believing and dreaming her past.  There is someone who wants to destroy them both, Daniels brother who has learned the ability to overtake someone’s body, for revenge.

There has always been something on the way of them fully being able to become the infinite love story of all time.

What would you remember if you could remember your past lives?  Would it give you perspective about the one you are presently living, giving you a chance to do things differently better or worse based on what the past has dealt to you?

Can love be remembered for centuries?  Are you able to discern it from other types?

  1. I cannot wait to read this book. I’ve had it on hold at the library for what seems like forever… I’m now 6 out of 172 people so I’m very close to reading it!!! 🙂

    • WOW 6 out of 172 people! The wait must seem agonizing, but rest assured it is a great book. This one will be a favorite for a very long time for me, and I will read it again.
