How many times can you lose the person you love? 

Katherine and Matthew are destined to be born again and again, century after century. Each time, their presence changes history for the better, and each time, they fall hopelessly in love, only to be tragically separated. 

Spanning the Crimean War, the Siege of Carlisle and the near-future of 2019 and 2039 they find themselves sacrificing their lives to save the world. But why do they keep coming back? What else must they achieve before they can be left to live and love in peace? 

Maybe the next together will be different...

A powerful and epic debut novel for teenagers about time-travel, fate and the timelessness of first love. The Next Together is told through a mixture of regular prose, diary entries, letters, "original" historical documents, news reports and internet articles.


I am so excited for this!!! I absolutely love unfortunate love stories (unfortunately) and love the concept of time travel and living (and loving) through different historical eras.  The story sounds wonderful, and I cannot wait to get my hands on this one! (Extra credit for the drop-dead gorgeous cover!)


  1. Whoa this book sounds awesome!! I love books of time travel and first love, I want this one too :)
