Some loves are not made to last . . . Like Romeo and Juliet, Heloise and Abelard were doomed from the start, and their romance was destined to pass into history. Yet when sixteen-year-old Callie Martin discovers a diary hidden within an antique book, their story - and hers - takes on another life. For the diary leads Callie to the brilliant and handsome August, who is just as mysterious as the secret the diary hides. Their attraction is undeniable. As the two hunt down the truth behind the diary - and that of Heloise and Abelard's ancient romance - their romance becomes all-consuming. But Callie knows it can't last . . . love never does. Will their love that burns as bright as a shooting star flame out, or will these star-crossed lovers be able to defy history?

Review quote

"A great read for those who enjoy historical love stories. In addition, the intertwining sub-plots connect the present-day characters and events to the corresponding ancient ones in the novel. This interweaving of the two levels creates a sense of mystery and intrigue for the reader. Consequently, the author beckons you to follow Callie on her journey to the ends of the earth to seek out this sought-after manuscript."
