The ultimate historical romance: one love story unfolds over many centuries and many lives in this captivating pageturner from Suzanne Weyn.

It starts with a fight in a cave over an elusive green jewel . . . and then travels over time and lives to include Egyptian slaves, Greek temples, Massachusetts witch trials, Civil War battlefields, Paris on the eve of World War II, America in the 1960s . . . and a pair of modern-day teenagers. For readers who believe that love is stronger than time or death, this is an unforgettable novel from a wonderful storyteller.

This is literally the best book I ever have and probably ever will read. Although each of their lives end similar, their is always a new and interesting aspect of each life. In each life it seams that they get closer and closer to being with each other, and although the end isn't very exciting it is so romantic and very satisfying. I love this book, and definitely think it is one of the most romantic stories of its time and possible in history.
