Facing a crisis of faith, a man named Paulo travels the world in search of fulfillment, in this novel by the author of the international bestseller The Alchemist. Paulo never expects to meet the gifted young violinist Hilal, who is in fact the woman Paulo loved 500 years before—and whom he betrayed in an act of cowardice. Together they will initiate a mystical voyage through time and space, to discover if it is possible to find forgiveness and real happiness in this life.
