"Everlasting life— what a horrid thought! Although sometimes I have believed that it would not be a terrible thing to be killed eternally. To be slain again and again, until I no longer feared death. Then life would be the illusion, and dying and bei ...more

Susanna Kearsley follows the same format in most of her novels - including this one. Woman slips back in time, love story blossoms... that's it. The thing is, despite using the same device over and over, Kearsley puts just enough spin on it and just ...more

For those who are aging, this book will ring true. For those who plan on aging, this is an honest exposition of what it's like. Use it for its object lessons. Enjoy it for the beauty of the writing.
