This was a welcome surprise after reading a number of books that stunk. In France in 1714, Addie makes a bargain to get out of her arranged marriage- to live forever but with the price tag attached that no one will ever remember her. Until 300 years later when she stumbles into a bookshop and a young man remembers her. But how? This ethereal tale took me up, shook me inside out, and made me believe in the power of love. Definitely one of the best books I have read in 2020.
