Title:  From Here to Eternity
Author: Paige Cuccaro
Publisher: Entangled Publishing

About the Book:  Love never dies…but apparently Rachel has.

Waking up one day to her obituary in the news and no recollection of the past few weeks, Rachel calls her husband, Nate, in a panic, at the research facility where he works. Nate is the inventor of CYANAs, Cybernetic Anthropoid Automatons, vessels that look exactly like humans and can store a person’s memories…and maybe even his or her soul.
When Nate arrives home, Rachel doesn’t recognize the man who claims to be her husband. Can Nate convince Rachel to fall in love with him all over again? Especially once she realizes what he’s done…and what it means for their future?


My Thoughts:  Very interesting take on cybernetics and our future.  Based on the premise that a person's memories can be downloaded like a computer file and uploaded to a CYANA upon a person's demise, so that they can continue living.  I had to keep reading just because I kept wondering what it would feel like - if my memories were transferred to someone, or something else, would I still feel like me?  Lots of great possibilities for a series here - learning to download other people's memories and so get their abilities.  But for this story, it was really a love story and the lengths that someone might go to in order to preserve the life of someone that they feel they cannot live without.  It was a good story, under 100 pages so a very quick read, and a great escape into the future.
