Lizzie Davenport has been reincarnated from Regency Era, England … but she doesn’t know it yet.
Then Drew Carmichael transfers into Lizzie’s high school, and she feels a connection to him, almost like she knows him. She can’t stop thinking about him, but whenever she tries talking with him about the mysteries behind her feelings, he makes it clear that he wants nothing to do with her. Reaching him is even more difficult because she has a boyfriend, Jeremy, who has started to become full of himself after being elected co-captain of the varsity soccer team, and her flirtatious best friend Chelsea starts dating Drew soon after his arrival. So why can’t she get him out of her mind?
Even though Lizzie knows she should let go of her fascination with Drew, fighting fate isn’t going to be easy.
Imaging coming back to fix the wrong that done. This is what happens in Remembrance. In a past life things didn’t go the way they were supposed to, so now Drew, Liz, Chelsea and Jeremy are back to do it again. Hopefully this time they can get it right.
It was a riveting ride from present to past as the past unfolded. I didn’t like Drew at first and couldn’t figure out why he would be so mean to someone, but as the story went on, questions got answered. As a best friend Chelsea is selfish and self centered. I probably would have kicked her to the curb a long time ago. And as for Jeremy, I don’t know what he was like before, but where the book picks up in their relationship he is not a nice person. The flash backs to the past are done very nicely and it doesn’t draw you away from or confuse the story.
I absolutely love that Lizzie can draw out what she sees and the masquerade scene is one of my favorites with the dress and the mask.
I enjoyed this book and will be picking up the next ones in the series.
