On a business trip from the US to Paris, Jebby meets Dodi on a flight. Jebby is an ethnomusicologist, and Dodi is an international photographer. They are immediately attracted to each other, but from the very first moment Dodi triggers what seems like past life memories for Jebby of a poignant and passionate time they shared together. As Jebby tries to figure out if she is "losing it" or if past lives really do exist, they embark on a path of adventure and romance where lifetimes and cultures interweave in modern day Paris, Uzbekistan, and in the old Southwest. Jebby and Dodi live their unusually diverse and rich adventure and romance, surrounded by an international cast and superb musicians. At the same time Jebby discovers where the Hopi originated from, that death is not a finality, love transcends lifetimes, and music is eternal.

Split second lifetime
The story develops around music, which is the center of the novel. Kahn’s writing is lyrical and magical. Her main character Jebby is a music ethnomusicologist, and she takes the reader on a journey of discovery of the music in Central Asia. Jebby and her team are producing a series of CDs on native music from around the world. She meets Dodi on the plane before she embarks on her journey Very entertaining book.
I suggest you listen to this when you can really sit and listen. Some of it at the beginning can get confusing but it does all come together nicely. I really enjoyed learning so much about music. The author did a really good job developing the characters. The narrator did a great job. The story was very enjoyable. I highly recommend this book
