Theire story starts as two young people in prehistoric times fighting over a precious jewel. Their lives end as they fall off a cliff. Years, generations, and centuries pass but fate brings them together. Their love fights through Egyptian slavery, Ancient Grecce, Massachusetts witch trials, Civil Was battelfields, Paris in the 1930s, and finally unites them in present day New York.

Quote:
In the last chapter,
it explains how Samantha, the main woman character, knew they had finally reached their last encounter and they would be together for the rest of their lives. ''Samantha knew that this was the beginning of the rest of her life. Her life would be with him from now on. They would never be apart again.'' This quote explains Samantha feeling that they are finally meant to be together from there on.
