I picked this one up by impulse while walking through the library, and was glad that I did even though I have a huge pile waiting to be read at home. This novel is the story of Rachel, who living in modern day New York looks back on her life - her long life. Born 2000 years ago, she makes a sacred pact that will leave her having to leave behind or lose scores of husbands and children, as she is not able to die, but to continually start over and over.
I felt like I was straight into the story could picture ancient cities and Roman soldiers, could feel the hot desert heat in my head - a sign that I am enjoying the story. 4/5
