The Next Together by Lauren James
How many times can you lose the person you love?
Katherine and Matthew are destined to be born again and again, century after century. Each time, their presence changes history for the better, and each time, they fall hopelessly in love, only to be tragically separated.
Spanning the Crimean War, the Siege of Carlisle and the near-future of 2019 and 2039 they find themselves sacrificing their lives to save the world. But why do they keep coming back? What else must they achieve before they can be left to live and love in peace?
Maybe the next together will be different...
This book is awesome. I'm not sure I have the words to do it justice really.
If you love historical fiction you'll love this book.
If you love contemporary fiction you'll love this book.
If you love dystopian fiction you'll love this book.
This book is really hard to pin down because it is so unique in what it does. It centers around the story of Matthew and Katherine who meet each other and fall in love time and time again in different lives. Each era has its own challenges and over the course of the book the pair try to deal with them as best they can.
I loved seeing how each story linked together and seeing each of the different threads of the story played out.
Only thing is the end left me with all the questions. I need someone to read it too so I can discuss at length.
