France, 1714: in a moment of desperation, a young woman makes a Faustian bargain to live forever and is cursed to be forgotten by everyone she meets. Thus begins the extraordinary life of Addie LaRue, and a dazzling adventure that will play out across centuries and continents, across history and art, as a young woman learns how far she will go to leave her mark on the world. But everything changes when, after nearly 300 years, Addie stumbles across a young man in a hidden bookstore and he remembers her name.
I was lucky enough to be approved for an e-ARC of this book. I honestly couldn’t believe it and I’m still having a hard time believing it. I’ve been excited for this book since the deal announcement, which I know isn’t as long as some people, but I was still very, very excited!
