Reviews

"I loved this book. The world it conjures up is so vividly imagined, and John Stone, the mysterious man at its heart, so fascinating and compelling. It's a licence to imagine, and an invitation to consider deeply what we mean by 'lifetime.' Original, thought-provoking and moving, it's a classic in the mould of LOST HORIZON."--M.L. Stedman, author of THE LIGHT BETWEEN OCEANS
"Buckley-Archer paints an absorbing portrait of the court of Versailles...Good historical fiction with a paranormal twist."--Kirkus Reviews
"Delicately balancing history, estrangement, reconciliation, and hope, the story powerfully depicts the fierce, abiding love of family: natural, adopted, and found."--Publishers Weekly, starred review
*"Exceptionally well-orchestrated and a simply magnificent story."--Booklist, starred review
*"Passion, intrigue and uncertain loyalties span the centuries in this slow-burning pageturner that's breathtaking in scope and thought-provoking to the end."--Shelf Awareness, starred review
"Rich in historical detail and subtly supernatural yet ultimately relatable, this affecting, intelligent tale addresses themes of forging one's own identity, finding one's niche, and discovering what it means to truly live."--School Library Journal
