This is the story of Daniel's search through time for Sophia, a girl he murdered in his first life. In another life he finds her but she is married to his psycho brother Joachim. The story is told by chapters of the lives of these two people until the present day when they find each other only to be thwarted by Joachim.
This is Brashares' second novel for adults. I thoroughly enjoyed it. It was optioned for a movie but who knows. It will certainly make a better movie than some of the movies coming out right now!
