In this beautifully written novel, Addie Larue seeks new experiences and a wider world that her early 18th-century French village can afford her. On the run from an arranged marriage, Addie strikes a bargain with a certain Dark Stranger: live forever in complete freedom. Freedom to do as she wishes, but also “freedom” from being remembered by anyone she sees, including her family.  While the Stranger believes she will soon tire of the struggle, Addie is determined to live, learn, and find what love she can, living through three centuries until a new experience in21st century New York City changes everything.

Addie, resilient and determined, drives this compelling story of love, freedom, and the human need for connection, and readers will want to journey with her to the book’s end and beyond.
