Not my book, but I'm a huge fan, so I'm proud to recommend it:
Alice & Henry, A Novel , by Anne Eldridge
"Memories of the unparalleled, clandestine passion we'd shared riffled through my
mind's eye like a stack of old photographs, each one an imprint that would remain with
me into the next existence and thereafter. Forever is a very long time."
Blackmail, coercion, and forty long years have separated Alice from Henry. As he lay
dying in a nursing home in the year 2033, a deathbed messenger, a fetch, calls to her and
she reluctantly goes to him during the final minutes of his life.
Alice's reluctance is justified; this wasn't the first time the end had come for one of them.
Their souls and their fates had been entwined through the centuries-life after life, and
death after death. Three of Alice's previous lifetimes had ended in violence or suicide
because of him: Burned at the stake for witchcraft in the 15th century, hung for the same
crime as a Puritan in the 17th century, and overdosed in the 1920s Chicago jazz scene.
But only Alice can remember these lives; Henry must relearn the hard lessons of the past.
In 1980, there is a chance to get it right...but it won't be easy: Alice is a freshman in high
school and Henry turns up as her history teacher, unsure how to handle his feelings for
this bewitching girl-whose eyes see more than he can possibly understand. In
desperation, he turns to another: Sarah Thurmond-a spoiled, malicious young woman
who lures Henry into a one night stand that turns into a nightmare of epic proportions...
Moving between 1980 and 2033-and beyond this mortal coil-Alice & Henry is the
story of two souls whose love transcends time...and whose struggles might prove eternal
when a karmic debt finally comes due.
