Lily Ostendorf, a beautiful foreign violinist, encounters Sam’s work in war-ravaged Europe and crosses the ocean to meet him. One night at the symphony unites Sam and Lily in a love story that resonates through the ages.
From ancient Anatolia—where a gifted young healer fights to marry her true love despite her father’s wishes—to modern-day Northern California—where Professor Jake Morgan struggles to save his marriage from the schemes of an alluring graduate student—the thread woven by Sam and Lily draws lives together and summons an unspeakable fate.
Follow the thread as mortal cares scatter with The Lightness of Dust.

LibraryThing Book Review I'm not a fan of giving low ratings and tend to give higher ones but I honestly can't do that for this book. I really tried to like the book. The story really confused me on so many levels that I disconnected with the characters as well. I thought the concept for the book was a good one but completely failed in the execution of it. I wish the author good luck in the future.
I received this book to give an honest review. I am giving this book 4 1/2 stars. Even though I did enjoy it, it first started off a bit slow and then as soon as I got into the story it would go into another time frame. At first this did kind of bug me because as soon as it was getting good, bam I was dealing with another time frame and someone else's story. After about the fifth chapter I truly understood it all and it ended up being a good story. You start of with the character Kera who is a healer and the her love Telamon who is a fisherman. When Kera's love goes away her father who is very mean ends up selling her to some priest who ends up not being this good priest. Kera Then you get into the life of Sam he is a struggling artist who works in a music theater. One day he decides to watch one of the concerts and meets a very beautiful woman who plays the violin. His life seems to change for the better when he meets her. But yet he goes off to War World 2, what will happen to their love? Will it stand the test of war? The last person in this book is a young professor, him and his wife are perfect for each other. She has stood by his side while he has put endless amounts of schooling into becoming a professor and going for his goals. He ends up meeting a young woman who wants to be his undergrad, but yet what are her intentions? Will Jake's marriage last with this new undergrad who may or may not take over his job? All these stories are intertwined in some way. They all have a certain person in common even though it is different time periods. The way everything came together was pretty cool. I do see myself reading more from this author in the future.
I really enjoyed this book the way the characters evolved into real people the way each story stood on its own and also tied into the other stories to me this was a very original idea and I can not wait until the next book is available
