Publisher's Summary

From the New York Times best-selling author of The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants and The Last Summer (of You and Me) comes an imaginative, inspired, magical book - a love story that lasts more than a lifetime.
Daniel has spent centuries falling in love with the same girl. Life after life, crossing continents and dynasties, he and Sophia (despite her changing name and form) have been drawn together - and he remembers it all. Daniel has "the memory", the ability to recall past lives and recognize souls of those he's previously known. It is a gift and a curse. For all the times that he and Sophia have been drawn together throughout history, they have also been torn painfully, fatally, apart. A love always too short.
Interwoven through Sophia and Daniel's unfolding present-day relationship are glimpses of their expansive history together.
From 552 Asia Minor to 1918 England and 1972 Virginia, the two souls share a long and sometimes torturous path of seeking each other time and time again. But just when young Sophia (now "Lucy" in the present) finally begins to awaken to the secret of their shared past, to understand the true reason for the strength of their attraction, the mysterious force that has always torn them apart reappears. Ultimately, they must come to understand what stands in the way of their love if they are ever to spend a lifetime together.
A magical, suspenseful, heartbreaking story of true love, My Name is Memory proves the power and endurance of a union that was meant to be.

Half good, half disappointing

I thought this book was going to be really great. The first half was quite good, but then it just fell apart. And, the ending was very unsatisfying. I read one review that said that the end was a setup for a sequel. Now that I've finished it, I agree. I also think the author (Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants) also might have had a movie in mind. It was too bad because the premise was really interesting to me (reincarnation).

My Name is Memory (Unabridged)

I really enjoyed this book. It had a lot of detail and brought you right into the story. It made you feel the feelings in the book. The test of a good writer. It is definately a love story. The ending certainly left the possibility for a sequel. I hope and look forward to a sequel. This a combination of "Time Traveler's Wife" and "The Outlander." As Ann Barshares matures in her writings of Adult Novels, I think she will become one of my favorite authors. I hope she sticks with including lots of details in her stories and takes the time needed to produce quality novels. Many authors are mass producting novels that are short, fast reads, but miss the richness or substance of this novel. I look forward to reading more of her books.
