Recommendation: Cover blurb
Although tempted by the cover blurb, the story was not what I expected. It involves a couple who had each been re-incarnated many times over 1000 years of history. In the beginning they had been lovers but over their many incarnations had had many different encounters or not met at all. Their 20th century lives conflict because they are out of phase with their lifetimes. He is 83, and she is 27, having experienced an extra incarnation through dying young earlier in the century. It is a really moving concept and the ending is superb. Recommended.
