    About the Book:   Daniel has spent centuries falling in love with the same girl. Life after life, crossing continents and dynasties, he and Sophia (despite her changing name and form) have been drawn together-and he remembers it all. Daniel has "the memory", the ability to recall past lives and recognize souls of those he's previously known. It is a gift and a curse. For all the times that he and Sophia have been drawn together throughout history, they have also been torn painfully, fatally, apart. A love always too short.

    Interwoven through Sophia and Daniel's unfolding present day relationship are glimpses of their expansive history together. From 552 Asia Minor to 1918 England and 1972 Virginia, the two souls share a long and sometimes torturous path of seeking each other time and time again. But just when young Sophia (now "Lucy" in the present) finally begins to awaken to the secret of their shared past, to understand the true reason for the strength of their attraction, the mysterious force that has always torn them apart reappears. Ultimately, they must come to understand what stands in the way of their love if they are ever to spend a lifetime together.

    A magical, suspenseful, heartbreaking story of true love, My Name is Memory proves the power and endurance of a union that was meant to be1000061053L.

    Andrea -
    I thought it looked interesting. I am hoping I like it better than The Time Travelers Wife which they compared it too and I abandoned.

    We shall see. :)

    Looks like a good one! I like the cover with the water, as it's more eye catching. Great choice!

    Alexia -
    I hope I enjoy it. I love reincarnation love stories, like The Gargoyle... it was incredible.

    I think I prefer the UK cover - the purple and yellow. I like that combo.

    Also - Brits crave color since their world is so starkly gray and green, and the blue would be out
    since they are surrounded by water. All sides - top and bottom too. lol
