What an amazing, beautiful, romantic, tragic, thought provoking and unforgettable book this is. I have absolutely fallen in love with it.
It begins in prehistory when a battle scarred Neanderthal man meets a desperate Cro-Magnon woman at the mouh of a cave, high on a cliff. Each is at a pivotal moment in his or her life and about to make a decision that will impact the future more than they are even capable of imagining. This meeting is brief and violent, but it is also the work of fate. They have no idea, but it was their desitny. They begin their journey in a struggle over a green jewel that ends in tragedy. Together they join the Wheel of Rebirth, but they are not even remotely finished with each other.
We follow these two soul mates through time and place in an epic adventure as they try, over and over, to get it right. They meet again in Ancient Egypt, Greece, Paris and the United States, taking with them reminders from each past life they have shared together. But they are not alone in this quest. There are other souls that travel with them who also must resolve their issues and discover the right path to take. The green jewel follows them as well, taking on new and deeper meanings each time.
When you look beyond the magical romance that transcends time, it is also a chronicle of human and civil rights through the ages. If these souls want to be together for all eternity, they will have to overcome incredible odds and fight to change the views of society.
Reincarnation shines more brilliantly than any jewel and will leave you with a tear in your eye and a smile on your face.
