Daniel tells me that he's always loved me. That I feel the same. That I always have.

Not just in this life, but in my last life, and all my lives before.

But I don't remember him.
He says he is always searching for me. Always hoping that one day I will remember. But it is only he that carries the memory of our love.

I know that finding true love is never easy. Perhaps you have fought for it. Perhaps, like Daniel, you have endured the pain of it being unrequited.

But I hope your quest ends happily.

I hope you never have to face the heartbreak that inevitably awaits us.

This is our extraordinary, unforgettable story.

Review quote

My Name is Memory is a captivating, open-ended story that begs for a sequel. I'll be watching for it. * Long and Short Reviews * A magical, suspenseful, heartbreaking story of true love... * American Saturday Review * 'This clever story about someone trying to catch-up with a long lost love, will be a hit with fans of Branshares'. * Press Association * '[T]his beautifully written novel is already on its way to becoming a Hollywood movie'. * Star Magazine * 'It's the type of book that takes all those questions we ask ourselves about destiny and the meaning of life and explores them so convincingly that it's almost as thought the author has stumbled upon a secret. Magical'. * I Was A Teenage Book Geek * It has everything you could want from a good book . . . I cannot recommend this book highly enough . . . I suggest you all add it to your summer reading list. You won't be disappointed. * * The centuries-old background to their story is as compelling as the action in the present and makes their constant near misses tear-provokingly frustrating. And the involvement of Daniel's evil brother adds the heart-racing pace of this thriller. It's a book that will inevitably draw comparisons to The Time Traveller's Wife, and stands up well to that modern classic. * News of the World * There are a lot of books I like and there are a lot of books I love and this is by far a love that I'm sure if I was to read it again and again I would see it a new light each time. * * A well-written love story * Heat *

Our customer reviews

Okay so I officially need to read all of Brashares books. I have fallen in love with her writing. It's unbelievable. Reading this book was like sitting by a fire with a hot cup of tea while it's pouring it down outside - not uncommon in England I have to tell you! The story itself was really romantic and original. I was initially worried that the love story would be really clichéd and all with the whole idea of soulmates but it really wasn't. It was lovely. I think part of the reason the book never got to the clichéd stage was that Daniel's past lives were interwoven into his present life with Lucy. It was like a break from the usual romance when Daniel describes how he was in wars or dying in a hospital and how he met the same girl with different names and different faces. It was certainly refreshing. I loved how Lucy's character developed on its own without Daniel. It was nice to read about rather than her being with a guy all her life in one way or another. Instead she grew up in her own time and made her own mistakes without Daniel there. It made the whole story more believable. Daniel's character developed too which you wouldn't think of one that had been through centuries of life experience. That was great to read about too; he wasn't perfect and still changed throughout the story. I did think that the story dragged a little in places but it wasn't really anything that put me off. It was kind of relevant to be honest...sort of emphasising how long Daniel has had to wait. That's just me reading into things too much though! All in all, this was definitely a captivating read and one that I would definitely recommend. A truly, glorious book!show more
