I received an advance copy of this book through a Goodreads First Reads giveaway.

This is a very deep story about the loves, passions, and angst of the four main characters as they search out a more meaningful existence. Dispersed throughout the time period of the mid 1800s to the early 21st century, the fictional realities of Martin, Lucien, Anna, and Maria vibrate on the page as they navigate the tension and fulfilment of their lives, ultimately coming together in a way they could never have dreamed. As is mentioned before, this is no light read, and the author's style of grammar requires the tiniest bit of extra concentration, so don't be expecting a comfortable, smooth-sailing "getaway read." On the other hand, Gallaway employs his imagination to the fullest, creating a tangible world of emotion and philisophical pondering that captures the heart, mind, and soul of the reader.
