Reader reviews

A light yet enchanting read with fully rendered worlds and memorable characters...The snappy dialogue paints a nice contrast against the lush and atmospheric depictions of Ancient Greece, Amazonian rainforests, and Arizona wilderness...a modern love story, befitting of an age where romance is met with cynicism and could benefit from a touch of magic.

A story within a story, abounding in magical realism and radiant settings...Successfully takes modern characters...and tells their love story in all the locations that capture the imagination.

To put it simply, this book floors me...constantly shedding light on the changing dynamic between two old souls who seem to have a hard time catching each other at the right moment...If you're looking for a book that talks about and encapsulates the feeling you have when you know you love someone but just can't find the words to tell them, read this book...a brilliant story on the nature of love, longing and the concept of forever.
