A man and a woman continually cross paths in different realities in this speculative love story that explores what truly defines us and how our choices can change everything—a stunning, affecting debut with the emotional resonance and imaginative flair of Kate Morton and Audrey Niffenegger.
Is it possible to remember someone you’ve never met before?
Thora and Santi are strangers in a foreign city when a chance encounter brings them together and intertwines their fates. Thora thinks she’s finally found a kindred spirit with the same intelligence, offbeat humor, and desire to look up instead of straight ahead. But days later, Santi is cruelly taken from her in an accident.
But this is just one of the many connections they share. Like two satellites trapped in orbit around each other, Thora and Santi meet again: as a nurse and dying patient; a teacher and prodigy student; a cynic and a believer. In numerous lives they become friends, colleagues, lovers, and enemies—but how and why? When ominous patterns begin to emerge and the lines between worlds blur, Thora and Santi come to a shocking revelation—they must discover the truth of their strange attachment before their many lives come to a final end.
By turns joyful, devastating, and quietly profound, Meet Me in Another Life considers provocative questions about life and fate. Can we chart the course of our destinies? Do we control our choices—or do our choices control us? Catriona Silvey has created a spectacularly compelling page-turner filled with shocking twists that is also an affirmation of the timeless power of love to connect us beyond time and space.
