Until the End of Time

Danielle Steel. Delacorte, $28 (336p) ISBN 978-0-345-53088-2

“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.)
