Publisher Comments:

andlt;bandgt;How do you avenge — or forgive — your own murder four hundred years after it happened?andlt;/bandgt; andlt;BRandgt; andlt;BRandgt; Prompted by recurrent dreams, sixteen-year-old Dana Landgrave uncovers an ancient crime that has drawn the same souls together through three lifetimes. andlt;BRandgt; andlt;BRandgt; There's nothing sinister about the girl's sunlit twenty-first-century American life in Portsmouth, New Hampshire. Yet, centuries ago, terrible things were done — by someone she knows! Could it be her easygoing, easy-to-look-at boyfriend, Chase? Or her younger brother, Ben, who has been confined to a wheelchair since a school bus accident? What about Gianna, her inscrutable enemy on the yearbook staff? Or her eccentric psychotherapist, Dr. Sprague? andlt;BRandgt; andlt;BRandgt; As Dana summons courage to reenter the past, each incarnation propels her to new discoveries — and new suspicions — until the threads of all three lives converge in a devastating revelation.

About the Author

andlt;bandgt;Roderick Townleyandlt;/bandgt;'s first book about Sylvie, andlt;Iandgt;The Great Good Thingandlt;/iandgt;, was a Top-Ten Book Sense Pick, praised by andlt;Iandgt;Kirkus Reviewsandlt;/iandgt; as "utterly winning...a book beloved from the first page." Its sequel, andlt;Iandgt;Into the Labyrinthandlt;/iandgt;, was hailed by the andlt;Iandgt;New York Timesandlt;/iandgt; as "a hopping fine read." The present volume completes the Sylvie cycle. andlt;BRandgt;andlt;BRandgt;Mr. Townley has also published the novel andlt;Iandgt;Skyandlt;/iandgt;, described by VOYA as "one hell of a book," as well as volumes of poetry, nonfiction, and literary criticism. He has two children, Jesse and Grace, and is married to author Wyatt Townley.

I could not put this book down! It was amazing. If you like old England, a little love, murder, drama, suspense, and mystery you will love this book. I highly suggest this book. The writing is just my type : descriptive, but not too much. How everything is put together is so genius. The best book I have read in a long time. I love how Dana gets in touch with herself and her past lives. Her boyfriend Chase is so adorable, I love him. I love how all of the dreams and visions she has start to unfold as you read. She will do anything to get rid of her nightmares and figure out all of these dreams and clues. It is just one of my kind of stories. I wish I could go back and see my past lives and put all of the pieces together. I wish I could figure out who I was. I almost wish I was her! Roderick makes it so enchanting and mesmerizing!
