Synopsis: Tamar is a musician, a warrior, a survivor. Fayard? He’s a pioneer, a hustler, a hopeless romantic.
Together, Tamar and Fayard have lived a thousand lives, seen the world build itself up from nothing only to tear itself down again in civil war. They’ve even watched humanity take to the stars. But in each life one thing remains the same: their love and their fight to be together. One love story after another. Their only concern is they never get to see how their story ends. Until now.
When they finally discover what it will take to break the cycle, will they be able to make the sacrifice?
Black people time traveling you say? Here’s all my money!!
Tamar and Fayard were made for each other. They have always found each other, no matter where they are: in present-day South Carolina, in 1325 Mali, in 1924 Pennsylvania, or in futuristic space. Unfortunately, their love affair is always tragic, doomed to repeat itself till the next cycle begins. They must hurry to figure out how to change their destiny once they discover this.
This book was, admittedly, a little confusing at times. The timelines that flowed throughout the novel were sometimes seamlessly integrated together…and sometimes not so effortlessly. It was a beautiful getaway and an enjoyable read overall.
This is a love story with a twist. The plot appeared to be flowing in one way, smoothly transitioning from section to section until the true state of their history was exposed. Shanna Miles did a fantastic job of carefully moving the plot along certain that you knew what was going to happen as you got closer to the end.
The book became increasingly convoluted and perplexing toward the end, but the conclusion is inevitably gratifying. I like the story’s dual POV structure, as well as Shanna Miles’ willingness to examine darker themes such as racism, class, social ills, and even death.
This book is absolutely amazing. I had a great time reading about Fay and Tamar’s multiple lives. They are such enthralling individuals, who remain consistent while also changing through time.
I’d recommend this book to you if you enjoy time travel, shifting storylines, unexpected twists and turns, witty characters and of course, love.
Thanks a million to TurnThePageTours for having me on this tour and to Simon and Schuster for sending a beautiful copy of this book my way!
