To escape an unwanted marriage, Addie Larue, a girl in 18th-century France, makes a deal with the devil, asking to be free to live forever. Luc, her incarnation of the devil, interprets that to mean that she will live each day as if it is her only day. She is completely forgotten by everyone she meets as soon as she leaves their presence. We follow Addie for three hundred years through world crises, dangers, and her daily struggle for survival, until she meets someone who can remember her. Powerful and unforgettable.
