Meet Evan and Shosh, two teens whose lives are coming apart at the seams. They don’t know it yet, but they’re about to hear music no one else can hear, songs that will lead them to the same park on the same night. They don’t know it yet, but this music is about to change their lives forever. Just like it always does.
From an escaped murderer in 19th century Paris, to a Norwegian kosmonaut in low-earth orbit, a mysterious bird is bringing strangers together in fortuitous ways. Through art, poetry, and original songs (written and recorded by the author), the book explores the history of love, and how some souls are meant for each other—yesterday, today, forever.
“I Loved You in Another Life will have your soul soaring! With unmatched lyricism, David Arnold has written a timeless love saga for the ages about two teens whose love outlasts even death itself. I love this book so much.” —Adam Silvera, #1 New York Times bestselling author of They Both Die at the End
