Beschreibung

REMEMBER ME WHEN THE COMET COMES... On the day the comet came, a girl named Heloise was born. She would live a fine life, and inherit a fortune, but would meet a cruel, untimely death. Years later, strange dreams plague Katya Nemcova, a teenager burdened with a rare and curious gift. Memories come to Katya in her dreams - images and stories from a past that isn't her own. Are these ghosts real? And what of the memory she seems to have of Heloise's treasures, two centuries old? This is a story that spans the history of Europe, from revolutionary France to the world wars, the Prague Spring, post Brexit Britain, and beyond. Katya's pursuit of her family's hidden memories will lead her into danger, and into the darkest places of the human soul. This is the warm, adventurous, and affectionate story of a quite extraordinary woman, her exceptionally talented ancestors, and the curious memories they share.

Vorwort
A life-affirming adventure story - three centuries in the making.
