Publisher's Summary

On a business trip from the US to Paris, Jebby meets Dodi on a flight. Jebby is an ethnomusicologist, and Dodi is an international photographer. They are immediately attracted to each other, but from the very first moment Dodi triggers what seems like past life memories for Jebby of a poignant and passionate time they shared together. As Jebby tries to figure out if she is "losing it" or if past lives really do exist, they embark on a path of adventure and romance where lifetimes and cultures interweave in modern day Paris, Uzbekistan, and in the old Southwest. Jebby and Dodi live their unusually diverse and rich adventure and romance, surrounded by an international cast and superb musicians. At the same time Jebby discovers where the Hopi originated from, that death is not a finality, love transcends lifetimes, and music is eternal.

    Any additional comments?

    The story develops around music, which is the center of the novel. Kahn’s writing is lyrical and magical. Her main character Jebby is a music ethnomusicologist, and she takes the reader on a journey of discovery of the music in Central Asia. Jebby and her team are producing a series of CDs on native music from around the world. She meets Dodi on the plane before she embarks on her journey Very entertaining book.

    Story
    "Confused the heck out of me"

    I got this book via audiobook boom. This story was so confusing. first I was in one person's story then in another then back to the first. I am not sure if this was supposed to be a book of individual dreamscapes or what. The narrator was very good but the story did not resonate with me. Perhaps I listened to it when I was tired and therefore did not understand the concept. I just did not get the stories or story.

    Story
    "Not what I expected"

    Received from author in one of my groups.

    It took me a while to get that the story was going from one time to another. A lot of music education for me, and a look into native Americans spiritual beliefs. I think.

    All in all it seems a decent story, but I couldn't really get into it.

    Story
    "A Very Unique Story"

    I really liked Split-Second Lifetime written by Denise Kahn. This was a really neat story with beautiful prose. One can't help but be drawn into the story. The characters are fleshed out and the settings are a visual experience with great detail.

    The narration made the audio version of this book somewhat hard to follow. When the character's voices are changed back and forth it makes it distracting. Keeping it a single voice would be better and using a professional voice over would be an even better choice. As a listener, I don't need the voice differential to know whose speaking.

    I did enjoy the music in the audio version. That was a nice touch.

    Audiobook gifted in exchange for my honest review.
