Steel's two-part story of reincarnation and everlasting love will satisfy fans of gentle romance and women's fiction. In the 1970s, famous fashion-show producer Jenny falls in love with lawyer Bill, and they marry, despite his family's objections. Bill decides to attend divinity school, and they end up living in Wyoming after a church offers Bill a position. There tragedy strikes. In the second story, Amish Elizabeth takes care of her widowed father and brothers while secretly writing a book at night. Bob is an independent publisher looking for a winning read. They fall in love and struggle to be respectful of her father and Amish traditions while seeking to publish the book and be together. Could it be that Elizabeth and Bob are Jenny and Bill come back to life for a happier ending? This gentle, inspirational story is very different from Steel's usual style, but her loyal readers will enjoy it just the same, as will anyone looking for a clever and sweetly dramatic romance.--Alessio, Amy Copyright 2010 Booklist

"I will love you until the end of time," aptly named lawyer and minister Bill Sweet repeatedly tells style director and design "muse" Jenny Arden in this tender romance that overcomes even death. When Bill meets Jenny for the first time in 1969, there is a sense that they've known each other before. After a chance second meeting they fall deeply, madly in love. Bill talks frequently about his belief that true love endures beyond death, and that reborn lovers find each other again. Bill and Jenny start building their perfect life together, but too soon, their lives are cut short. Then in 2013, Lillibet Petersen, a young Amish woman, daringly sends her manuscript to a New York publishing house, where Robert Bellagio buys it and becomes entranced by its author-whom he feels he's met in a past life. Connected by the notion of reincarnation but never repetitive, the two distinct romances form one overarching, heart-warming love story that will have readers believing in forever. (Feb.)
