The Sun Is Also a Star meets Outlander in this vivid, utterly romantic debut novel about two teens who relive their tragic love story over and over until they uncover what they must do to change their fate.
Tamar is a musician, a warrior, a survivor. Fayard? He’s a pioneer, a hustler, a hopeless romantic.
Together, Tamar and Fayard have lived a thousand lives, seen the world build itself up from nothing only to tear itself down again in civil war. They’ve even watched humanity take to the stars. But in each life one thing remains the same: their love and their fight to be together. One love story after another. Their only concern is they never get to see how their story ends. Until now.
When they finally discover what it will take to break the cycle, will they be able to make the sacrifice?
—Julie Murphy, #1 New York Times bestselling author of Dumplin’
“An unforgettable and artfully crafted romance right down to the very last page.”
“A romance for the ages. Fresh voices and original predicaments make this one perfect little novel.”—Stacey Lee, award-winning author of The Downstairs Girl
ABOUT THE AUTHOR
Shanna Miles is an author, reviewer and librarian who lives in Georgia with her two daughters, and educator husband and advocates tirelessly for appropriate representation for marginalized people in children’s fiction. Her passion is Paranormal Romance, but she also has a deep affinity for diverse Science Fiction like that of Octavia Butler and Sherri L. Smith. “Willow Born” is Shanna Miles’ latest work.
I felt a lot of things while reading For All Time. I felt sad, angry, helpless, distressed along with the two characters Tamar and Fay. So beautiful and spell-binding is the writing.
I felt angry at Tamar for not expressing her true feelings on time. Again I feel sorry for her for the games fate played with her.
Fay was full of himself but that’s just what we see men do. But he too suffered a lot. You can’t stop but feel sorry for him too.
The story is not just about love. It’s about slavery, racism, sexism, patriarchy, and how love blossoms among adversities. Love has no age, no expiry date.
I have one complaint. I couldn’t quite connect with the future Tamar and Fay– the outer space–different dimension love story. I thought it wasn’t required. It just added to my confusion. The other phases were beautifully portrayed.
I’m in love with Shanna Miles’ writing.
