A Life No One Will Remember. A Story You Will Never Forget.
France, 1714: in a moment of desperation, a young woman makes a Faustian bargain to live forever―and is cursed to be forgotten by everyone she meets.
Thus begins the extraordinary life of Addie LaRue, and a dazzling adventure that will play out across centuries and continents, across history and art, as a young woman learns how far she will go to leave her mark on the world.
But everything changes when, after almost three hundred, years, Addie stumbles across a young man in a hidden bookstore and he remembers her name.

I enjoyed reading this book, the plot is intriguing, I also really liked the way the characters in the book are written. It made me feel like I really understood them.
This is a great adventure and a remarkable story with twists and turns making it a highly creative adventure. A story with an unexpected ending which made it a great read from start to finish.
I have read several other books written by this author and have really enjoyed every one of them. I cannot wait to read more of her books and definitely will be sharing them with you on “Professor Owls Book Corner” in the not-too-distant future.
